I can say this because I know firsthand the pain it causes. I have spent the majority of my life striving for perfection at any cost. I felt like this would make me loved, and most importantly, accepted. Maybe my parents wouldn’t be mad at me, maybe the girls at school wouldn’t bully me relentlessly. This led me to a childhood + teen years plagued with obsessive calorie-counting (I can still tell you the caloric value of way too many foods), restricting, EDNOS, anorexia nervosa, and bulimia nervosa. And at the root of all of this torture was a girl who hated herself to her core. It hasn’t been easy, and I fall off the wagon more often than I’m on it, but choosing to love myself a little bit more everyday is the first step in healing these deep-rooted wounds. So choose. Be deliberate in your choice to heal. Be unrelenting in your choice to love yourself. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it. Find the lone wolf, the wild woman stuck inside you. Love her, and you shall set her free 🐺🖤 with love + rebellion xx #therecoveryrebel #recoverlikeabadass #recoverlikeyougiveafuck #gangstergoddess #recklesslyauthentic #selfloveclub #edrecovery #edawareness #anorexiarecovery #ptsd #sober #radicalselflove #suicideawareness #mentalheathawareness #mentalwellness #transformation #alignment #bodypositive #selflove #nourishnotpunish #loveyourself #vancouver #gratefulheart #raiseyourvibration #prosperity #wildwoman #lonewolf #bossbabe #divinefeminine
