I have to share this beautiful blog by Anorexia Revealed, Beauty Beyond Bones. She shares this with such a pure heart and it certainly touched mine!
One of the biggest misconceptions about anorexia and eating disorders, is that the girls (or boys) are incredibly vain. That they’re stuck on themselves, obsessed with their looks, and fatally preoccupied with beauty.
That could not be farther from the truth.
Sure, maybe the onset of the disease started with a desire to be pretty but by the “end” of the disease, the mirror became my worst enemy. Literally, abhorring my reflection. All I could see was my guilt, shame, and self-hatred projected onto the lifeless, gaunt shell of my former self.
And truth be told, this is something that still haunts me today.
(Sidenote: this post is not depressing, I’m just setting the stage, stay with me!)
