here's to the past

I'm Christine. I'm 19 years old and I'm in recovery for cutting and an eating disorder. I am diagnosed with depression, anxiety, ocd, bipolar, and bdd. I hid my faults for most of my life but I've come to the point where I don't care who knows my story because if I can help just one person, it's worth it. This isn't going to be easy. It's going to be a long, dirt road but the destination is going to be simply beautiful: happiness. After everything you've been through, you deserve happiness. I can't do this alone and neither can you. Join me?

The thing is: when someone calls you too skinny, that hurts. It’s inappropriate, hurtful, and makes you self conscious. But at the end of the day, you pick up a magazine, you turn on the TV, you go on the internet on a gossip site - what do you see? Women who look like you. Women who have a body that recalls yours, women who are considered the standards of beauty to which all must follow to be considered beautiful. You go to a store, and odds are you can find clothes that are in your size. Odds are you don’t have go to stores dedicated to people your size, clothes that might not be as cute and are definitively more expensive.

When you’re fat, not only does it hurt, but society just confirms it day after day. You flip on TV, you read a magazine, and there are no women in your size. Nobody with a body like yours, nobody modeling clothes or being called gorgeous. You go to a store, and you can’t find clothes that fit you - and even if you do find things in larger sizes, they still don’t LOOK right, don’t fit right, cause they were designed for thinner girls in mind, and making these clothes in larger sizes doesn’t mean it’s going to look good on your body. You’re told you’re ugly by a piece of shit and basically the world you live in says back, well, yeah, that’s true.

That’s the difference. No, people making comments about your body are ALWAYS unwelcome and gross, but a thin person and fat person still live in the same society that caters and upholds thinness as a standard of beauty. That doesn’t change, and that’s why it’s not the same.

Will I be something?
Am I something?

And the answer comes:
You already are.
You always were.
And you still have time to be.
Anonymous asked: I don't fucking know how to tell the guy I like that I relapsed on cutting without seeming like I'm seeking for attention.... But I really need to talk to him about it


Answer:

I think you just need to straight up tell him. If he thinks you’re an attention seeker or that you’re lying, he isn’t meant for you anyway. I know it’s scary but in the end, his reaction says way more about him than it does you. I think that it good information to have if you do plan on having a future with this man.
