Feeling comfortable in your own skin is something that a lot of people take for granted. There are so many of us who hate our bodies and in so many different ways. Whether you have an eating disorder, mental illness or another issue, there are people around you who can help. They can be friends or relatives, doctors or random people on the internet. You should never feel alone, there are always people out there that care for you and want you to be happy with yourself.
It doesn’t matter what you look like, if you are skinny or overweight. It doesn’t matter what your clothes fit like or how much you eat. Or if you have trouble getting yourself to laugh, even at the funniest of things. Or if you now have the emotional range of a cucumber and always feel like you have done the bare minimum just to show up each day.
People love you for just being you.
Lately, I have been hating my body in just about every way. But whoa! Didn’t I just lose 23 pounds? I should be the happiest I have been in a long time when it comes to my weight! Yes, I did. But I am finding that I am developing some body issues and having issues with food. I am doing anything within my power to make sure that I never gain weight like that again. Things are going well with my new psychiatrist and I am slowly working towards a functioning dose of my new medication. I have extremely high hopes for the future of my mental state.
This is a pep talk for myself. I am going to start seeing a nutritionist in May and I am looking forward to having my eating evaluated. I just want to find my way back to being me, mentally and physically.
