I’ve been in love with this blog ever since I first found it, and I just kept waiting to submit for whenever it felt right.
Where do I begin? I guess I’ve been really negative about my body and myself for as long as I can remember. Even back to when I was in gymnastics when I was like 7 years old.
I’m a huge perfectionist and I developed an eating disorder and depression, which led to self harm. I’ve been recovering for a little over a year, with a few small relapses in between.
But no matter how hard it is, I have finally managed to build a foundation of love for myself. Some of those bad thoughts creep back in, but I finally have the strength to say “No.” I finally realize that I’m better than that.
I’m grateful for my body no matter what size, and I’m grateful for everything it enables me to do. My body lets me live out my dreams, and for that, it is beautiful.
YOU are beautiful <3 And I can’t wait to see where I go from here.
