So I woke up to this message today. I don’t know why you felt the need to send me such bad vibes when I try so hard to not only be kind to all those who cross my path, but also to myself. It has taken me 20 years, and more scars on my body than I would like to admit, to love who I am inside and out. I am finally becoming a healthier me after suffering through an eating disorder that brought me down to almost 90 lbs. For the first time in my life I actually feel happy, loved, and perfectly content. I still have my bad days, everyone does. But I have to remind myself whenever I do get discouraged or read negative words such as the ones I received this morning that I have so many reasons to keep moving forward. This December marks two years since the last time I self-harmed, and I haven’t looked back since because that’s not where I’m going. Because I know tomorrow will always be a better day if I get up with a smile already on my face.
