you are stronger than you think

“Being strong isn’t being able to starve yourself for three weeks. Being strong is being able to get out of your eating disorder and becoming healthy, even when the voice in your head won’t let you. Ignoring this voice, ana or mia or both, IS being the strongest, so don’t ever give up”

i had an eating disorder for four years. i measured my personal strength in the hours i went without eating, the number of calories i burned and the size of my clothing. but i’m worth more than that.

you’re worth more than that.

i have decided to show anorexia who’s boss. show the world that it doesn’t control me any more.

i am stronger than i think.

you are stronger than you think.

together, we can be stronger.
