It’s amazing to be accepted for what I thought would only label me as crazy, attention seeking. This has given me the courage to keep fighting for recovery, awareness, and support. I am honestly so proud of myself. I have come so, so far.

Opening up about my eating disorder and raising awareness (via the-girl-without-ed)
We are not meant to stay wounded. We are supposed to move through our tragedies and challenges and to help each other move through the many painful episodes of our lives. By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds — the strength to overcome them and the lessons that we are meant to receive through them. Wounds are the means through which we enter the hearts of other people. They are meant to teach us to become compassionate and wise.
