I remember it like it was yesterday, the pain, the devastation. I remember feeling so broken, alone and ashamed. I remember crying, a lot of crying, when I didn’t know what to do with myself. I was so disgusted with my body, with myself. I would list off all the ways I was inferior to others, getting more depressed with each thought.
All of these feelings came rushing back to me today, as I’ve talked with three beautiful women in the last few hours who are in that place. It breaks my heart. I know that place.
I’m not going to tell you there’s a quick fix, some perfect remedy that will just magically change it all. It isn’t quick and it isn’t easy. It takes dedication and hard work. But what have you got to lose?
I decided something HAD to change. I had to change. I took one step, then another, and another. I am still taking one step at a time, and each day is better than the day before.
So to you my friend, who is in that place, REACH OUT! To your best friend, to your mom, to me. Reach out to someone and start taking steps towards healing, happiness, confidence. It’s possible, and YOU ARE WORTHY OF IT!!!! I’m here for you friend, praying for you!
