“The problem is that you don’t just choose recovery. You have to keep choosing recovery, over and over and over again. You have to make that choice 5-6 times each day. You have to make that choice even when you really don’t want to. It’s not a single choice, and it’s not easy.”—Carrie’s Blog Post
“I have recently realized just how much time I wasted hating myself. How I spent years in front of the mirror, obsessing over obtuse visions that do not matter. My appearance is not a marker of my worth. I was not born to be a barbie, a perfect little doll to sit on someone's shelf. I am a love child of Betty Friedan and Hillary Clinton, created for more than weight preoccupation and disturbing self-hatred. My body is more than a temple or a home. It is the sacred vessel that has continued to thrive through the shakiest of waters. I am still here. And I will not waste any more time.”—This Is My Body Revolution, Fuck What The Media Dictates.
I just want you all to know that no matter how hard it gets,
No matter how much you want to cry or scream or give up,
No matter how many times you do cry or scream or give up,
There are people out here who will pick you right back up if you need us to.
No matter how many times those voices say you are weak for trying to leave them behind,
You get stronger every time you ignore them. You are a fighter, and you will win.
