Have you ever tried to hide something about yourself from the world? Pretend it didn’t happen?
I certainly have, I thought I hid it well but now I see it written all over my face!
The girl on the left feeling anxious, massive weight on her shoulders, hiding her true self, only 2 months ago.
The girl on the right relieved, happy, free, 1 month ago.
The mental energy I was using in holding my feelings, emotions, my experience with an eating disorder inside was consuming. It was bloody hard work! From the moment I decided I was ready to share, ready to move on, it’s all I thought about. The day I blurted it out I felt many emotions, but most importantly I felt liberated. I felt, just ME. For the first time ever.
If you have something you keep thinking about, if it is consuming your thoughts, if you can’t get past it, share it, do it, take action. Now is as good a time as any! Gosh it feels bloody GOOD to just get it out! Don’t let YOUR past experiences define you
