Quote

"The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness."

"Pray without ceasing." (1 Thessalonians 5:17) If there is a common thread that should run through the life of a Christian each day, it’s prayer. Now, that doesn’t mean you refuse to speak to anyone else or that you drive down the road with your eyes closed. But it does mean being ever ready and willing to go before God. Nothing is too small or too big for God to care about. He created you, so why wouldn’t He care about you? You should bathe your life in prayer. Pray for wisdom, peace, and patience. Pray for your marriage, your job, and your children. Pray for other people and circumstances, even when the situation may seem hopeless. Give every person and everything in your life to God in prayer — and they will be in the best of hands!

I have had some time to really think about how healed I am lately. Its actually mind blowing to think that I ever concerned myself with wanting to be skinny. I thought that would make me happy, but that didn’t mean I was unhappy. I was just not satisfied with the young girl in the mirror at the time. 

And now I look at myself and I truly see beauty. I see God’s masterpiece. The way he designed me is the was he wanted to design me. The talents He gave me are the talents he wanted to give me. sometimes I have no idea why he gave me such a variety of artful passions… but He did. Sometimes we don’t get to know until later. 

But as for healing. I am healed. I am fully healed from my past experience with an eating disorder. I remember thinking that I would be that way for the rest of my life. I remember thinking that would be my normal…forever. That I would constantly be concerned with calories and finding the next opportunity to purge anything that I had eaten. 

I don’t know where YOU are at reading this. I don’t know if you’ve had an eating disorder, have one now, or are like me and have recovered. I am no longer on the path to recovery. I am fully recovered. Did you know that that was possible? Did you know that people can fully recover from eating disorders? I didn’t. I honestly didn’t.

One day I remember sitting on the couch across from my counsellor whom I adored. She looked me in the eyes. I have no idea what I had just said, but her big warm blue eyes looking right into mine. She said ” You CAN recover from this, you know?”

Sometimes all we need is someone who believes in us. That’s enough to pull through. Thats enough motivation to bring you forward to the life you were meant to live. 

Now I like eating. Sometimes I eat a lot. Sometimes I don’t. But I don’t think about it as a “this will make me fat” or “I will get skinnier because I didn’t eat”… my reasons are human. like “I actually am too tired to make food” or “I feel like eating so I’m gonna eat this”.

I don’t weigh myself. I am not concerned with how much my earth suit weighs. That’s a ridiculous thing to worry about. I notice if my pants are tighter or looser but for the most part I don’t change. 

Right now. I don’t remember the last time I threw up. Years! I use to count the days! Now I’ve lost track because its in the years!

God is not a God of disorder, He is a God of PEACE. 1 Cor 14:33

I have peace about my body size. Finally.
