tw: eating disorder
I had been mulling over the idea of submitting something partly because I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted a picture of myself for the internet to see and partly because I didn’t know what picture to submit. But I wanted to encourage others and show that I can love myself for exactly who I am. I have gotten past an eating disorder, low self esteem, and looking down on myself because I’m mixed. I decided to submit a picture of when I feel the best - after I work out. Even if it’s just a walk or I’m attempting to jog, or doing whatever, I feel my body working and I feel strong and healthy. I’ve learned what it’s like to eat normally. I now am in love with the fact that I come from a Mexican and Thai heritage. I’m thankful that I know two different cultures from my parents as well as the culture of where I’ve grown up. I wake up every day thankful for who I’ve become and how much I have learned to love myself.
Feel free to talk to me if you ever want to or you ever need an encouraging word!
