A Reminder of How Far I’ve Come

Postsecret made me cry today. Apparently it is National Eating Disorders Awareness month and there are three secrets in a row about eating disorders. Two of them really hit a nerve. I’m in a place of recovery and have been for a long time. I am actually moving on to new levels of healing but these postcards reminded me of where I once was. I think I needed this reminder today as I embark on continuing my recovering (in ways I’m not ready to discuss openly but perhaps will soon).

I don’t think I ever purged because of a specific person but it was certainly an attempt to rid myself of things I didn’t want to keep inside any longer.

Although I've never found a note like this I've surrounded myself with people who help me remember this about myself. I am SO thankful for them.
