This is flawless. I can’t even remember where I read this first, but it’s perfect. That’s what recovery is aiming towards. Flexibility. We can become so rigid, so overcome with our EDs that we forget what it is, to be flexible and relaxed around food and our bodies.
This is a quote from Linda Paindexter, I thought it really nice way of describing the way we should look at mental health and your disorder, Amanda. Remember this when you feel bad about yourself or others do something to make you feel bad about your disorder. Most people are misinformed about psychosis and many other things when it comes to mental health disorders. You are a strong person Amanda, look at this whenever you feel otherwise.
Be confused, it’s where you begin to learn new things. Be broken, it’s where you begin to heal. Be frustrated, it’s where you start to make more authentic decisions. Be sad, because if we are brave enough we can hear our heart’s wisdom through it. Be whatever you are right now. No more hiding. You are worthy, always. – S.C Lourie thedailyquotes.com
