one of the things that mental illnesses can steal from you is your belief that you are good at anything. that anything you do is decent or has value. an eating disorder does the same thing. it crushes your sense of self so that you feel like a failure on every metric. that fear of failure and rejection was difficult to confront when i decided to start posting some of the thoughts i have and some of the things i’ve written. i feel proud of the fact that i made the attempt.
honestly, i expected nothing, so it is quite wonderful to have people like what you have to say or decided to follow the site on which you post your words.
i am immensely grateful to everyone who has taken the time to read what i write, comment, or follow me. you are so very much appreciated.
