“Not all help is going to be helpful, and you do not have to accept and agree with something just because it’s offered to you out of kindness. In high school, I was cyber bullied and took the emotional pain I was feeling out on my body through self harm and starving myself. Despite this a good friend of mine told me I needed to lose weight, so I did. I’ve been struggling with an eating disorder ever since, with bouts of depression and anxiety in the midst as well. I’m grateful for the people who have stood by me and everyone whose hearts are in the right place, even though some of them are not able to help me in my recovery. I’ll never stop fighting and I know I’ll beat this awful illness.” -Anonymous
