Honesty doesn't have to be brutal!
Especially because your recovery is directly dependant on your honesty and to some degree your ability to be vulnerable.
This, for many people and for any number of reasons can be especially scary, because we fear the brutal honesty about ourselves.
Although, I don't have to fact check to tell you that being emotionally vulnerable won't kill you.
Sure, it's uncomfortable and difficult, but definitely not deadly. [Read the full blog- link in bio]

I'm sure there's a word for it, but it's strange seeing a photo of myself or even my own reflection and realizing that I'm a real person. It's so surreal that I've made it this far in life when I almost quit it 5 years ago. I've grown so much from the person I used to be and I'm glad I kept fighting those voices and reached out for help. Recovery is an option. No matter how much you want to give up or you think you're in too deep, reach out and I promise someone will grab your hand and never let you go ❤

OKKKKK STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING and go buy @arcticzero
ice cream! Wow they have seriously redone their flavors and texture!! I am seriously 100% impressed right now!! The perfect way to celebrate Friday Eve!! 🎉😊💜💕
Think about this. Comment your why down below!
This is the exact spot where my true healing began of my severely damaged self-worth.
I love to visit this spot on the Pacific Ocean several times a year, to remind my self how far I’ve come, and to soak in the special energy of this place.
What we don’t heal, will always be revealed.
We can ignore past hurts, traumas, and tragedies; we can try to cover them up with food, relationships, work, alcohol, shopping, being constantly busy; we can deny that any of it even exists or bothers us. TRUTH IS, none of it will just disappear. It’s there for us to deal with it, or it will consume us directly or indirectly.
Money won’t make these wounds any better either, I tried that for a long time. So have countless public figures, who have ended their lives. Success is irrelevant without inner peace.
“The only way around the pain, is to go through it.” (ACOA)
Once I did that deep inner work, my wealth, worth, and health skyrocketed 🚀 in amazing ways.

So I’m doing really well with eating, I barely have any guilt and today I had a frozen lemonade from Tim hortans which I haven’t had since before my eating disorder! It was so good and I had a triple cheese bagel with lots of cream cheese just because I wanted one!😩💖
Buttttt I also have not been good with my body. I hate my body rn like I HATE it. The other day I was sent an anonymous message telling me I’m fat and I need to learn to suck in because I wear crop tops to often and it disgusts them... that hit me hard. I now have body dysmorphia. I look at myself and see fat. I hate it. But I don’t stop eating I can’t stop, and that’s what scares me, I’ve lost control...
I like my tits😂 but that’s all. I act like I don’t have a problem, I’m known for being very confident and outgoing. Inside truly I’m the least confident person out there... well one of them. I put on a fake smile and act like everything’s fine. It’s not
I’m one of the most hated people at my school rn. My friends threw me under the bus (not literally) they said I stole a girls vape when they came up to them. We were all suspended. We aren’t even allowed to hang out. But even though they threw me under the bus I still forgive them. They’re my best friends at school. I have no one without them. Everyone’s mad cause I stood up for them when they were in the wrong, I’m a good friend and honestly I’m scared. I’ve lost a friend group this year already... I can’t do that again.

What’s this? Another photo of a drink and cake? Who ever would have guessed it?! My challenge this week was to be spontaneous and have a snack and drink out, but to also eat it in the cafe, mainly to try and prepare myself for Paris (WHICH IS IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS @elizabethellagray
😱) because I want to make the most of the trip, and to be able to eat in cute Parisian cafes and have breakfast out and drink coffee to my hearts content. So seeing as I got the early train to work and had my crochet with me, I thought I would take the opportunity to give it a go. I went in to the nearest Costa, despite it being busy and got the jam bake and a soya salted caramel frostino which was amazing 😍 and then challenged myself by sitting right in the middle of the shop. I didn’t go on a walk after, I didn’t compensate, I just sat and breathed and relaxed and then went to work and tried to focus on stock and customers and divert my attention. I know from photos it can seem like I find this stuff easy, and even in person at times it can too, but that couldn’t be further from the truth at the moment, but with every challenge I take a step towards beating this, and for that I am proud 💪🏼 #anorexia #ednos #anorexianervosa #atypicalanorexia #depression #anxiety #bpd #recovery #recover #health #strongnotskinny #operationnotgiveafuck #recoveryqueen #anorexiarecovery #balancednotclean #recoveryisworthit #anawho #ed #edrecovery #realrecovery #prorecovery

This, this is my talisman right now, for all that it represents. The craziness of life and exams and job hunting and all of the nightmare level STRESS... It is all worth it. For life with Rhys, for starting a family. For buying our land and building our home and future together. I can get through this; “he who has a why to live can bear almost any how” 💕
Because Shakeology gives me the all natural wings I want. Health is Wealth and that’s why I drink the quality stuff every single DAY!!🌿💯🌿💯 Since Matt and I have been winning since we got here with random acts of kindness to us, let me give back to YOU! Drop an emoji for a free sample, I will pick a few winners randomly.💜✨⚡️
Had a lovely day dorm shopping with my mom—I felt pretty bad spending so much money but I know I need to buy stuff if I’m gonna be living on my own (well, with 3 other people).🤷🏼♀️ My orientation is also coming up which is scary but exciting!! I really hope I get a good “vibe” while I’m there and that I don’t somehow embarrass myself like I usually do. I loved visiting the school the first couple of times but the last one wasn’t so great. Fingers crossed!🤞🏻 I hope you all had a good day.
I still don’t know exactly what to say about yesterday...
Life gets tough. It throws you curveballs and gets to be too much to handle, but you just have to deal with it. You can’t let the hard stuff completely derail your progress.
I’m still going. I’m not giving up. I’m advocating for myself and won’t stop trying. ~S
Dinner is a stack of pancakes while I continue to study😒 I have not had pancakes in so long and I forget why, they’re so good!!💓💪🏻
I have seen her live about three times in my lifetime and it’s never enough. I always cry. It’s crazy how much a stranger can influence us. I know without Demi sharing her story I would have N E V E R reached out for help. She has helped me in ways no one will ever understand. Thank you. My favorite human on planet earth, some day I will meet her and tell her personally but for now this post will have to do. You’ve saved my life multiple times and continue to do so. I love u, thank you for always trusting us and being so vulnerable, it’s the bravest thing I have seen yet #recovery #recoveryisworthit #eatingdisorder #neda #mentalhealth
I found my new favorite hobby! Diamond painting! So fun and relaxing. I like to do it while listening to my favorite podcasts. Hobbies for me were hard. I would go to work, make dinner and obsess about that, and by that time I was so mentally exhausted to do anything else! Once you let go of the food rules, your brain has so much more room to do the things you actually like. What are your hobbies or passions you do?! #recoveryisworthit #intuitiveeating #diamondpainting #crafting #hobbies #passion
: arroz integral con curry, un huevo cocido, 5 palmitos quesillo y un poco de aliño light de ajo & ciboulette
Mi comida favoritaaaa, obviamente estaba muy rico😻 además lo disfruté el doble porque tenía hambre después de lo mal que he comido hoy
: barra sabor vainilla toffee
***PTW*** me molesté en la mañana así que no desayuné y solo me llevé esto de colación. Me sentí horribleee, no paré de pensar en todo el día en llegar a mi casa a almorzar (a las 5 de la tarde) njsbdj😂😭
Hiiii! sorry everyone I have been inactive lately. I've really been struggling with body image a lot. More so because it's summer and I'm in a bathing suit a lot. I ended up weighing myself today and I lost a significant amount of weight in a short time period... I'm really confused as to why this is happening because I am eating and following my meal plan. Maybe it's because I'm very active? Idk... any thoughts? •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#eatingdisorderrecovery #anorexia #scalesareforfish #recovery #recoveryisworthit #eat #mentalhealthawareness #edrecovery
Peanut butter cup ice-cream?!🥜😍 I wish I lived in America just for this! Can we pls have this range in the UK?
If you told me last year I’d be eating ice-cream by the tub without caring I would never have believed you🙅🏼♀️ but that’s what comes with growth - a whole lot of life & light you never knew existed.
110% recommend, the peanut butter lover inside me had to pick this up & I’m so glad I did😝 dreamyyyy✨✨
This doesn't fit with my theme but I don't care for two reasons: 1 because challenge those obsessions 💪🏻 and 2 because I felt fucking gorgeous today ☺
Hellooooooo everyone!!! It's update time with a PTW just incase!! ❤
Holy shit so I finished sixth form on Tuesday!! In terms of my mental health, it was the hardest two years of my life. There was a fairly long period of time where the people around me genuinely thought I wouldn't be alive now; never did anyone (including myself) imagine I'd be an outpatient off to uni in three months!! But here I fucking am! I sat all 8 of my exams and only struggled to sit one of them!! It was a huge achievement just to sit down in front of my papers. Everyone reminded me it was okay if I didn't write anything but I did!! I answered every question in every paper so it's safe to say I exceeded everyone's expectations. Plus I've had no incidents of target behaviours this whole time so go me!! 💪🏻 Mentally things have been VERY up and down. My mood swings are once again very chaotic and put of control... my mood is low and my anxiety high... I have far too many intrusive thought and hallucinations for my liking... but in all honesty I'm learning to accept this is just how my brain is. I might not like it but the only thing I can do is accept it, because my illnesses are stubborn bastards and no-one appears to know how to quieten them 😒 but I'm coping. Every night my brain plans a relapse and honestly most nights I sit and laugh at it. It's ideas are ridiculous. I'm not relapsing when I have a whole future just around the corner, literally in 3 months time itll be my first night in halls!! So keep planning, but I'm not listening 💪🏻
I still find the future very scary and everything is still whizzing around my head. But I know that there is a difference between hearing and listening- it's that knowledge that's probably saved my life.
But life is looking up!! It was my girlfriend and I's two year anniversary today which was perfect!! Becca paid for me to have my second ear lobe piercing!! Plus I no w have a nice long summer to spend with friends and just have the break I deserve!!! Sorry for rambling, love to you all ❤
Always be hopeful, people around you loves you.
You will find that the spiritual energy will permit you to perform tasks far beyond your conditioned capacity in terms of time & accomplishment...👌

D•A•Y 8 - Let it go, let it goooo! I took Elsa’s advice and I let it go. I went to sleep after my sleepless brain dump in the middle of the night and woke up feeling a million times better. .
I realised how much my client’s reactions must be coming from a place of fear and unhappiness. I tried to empathise with her and realised that her issues were stress related too. We are the same just on different sides of a business relationship and as if by magic a weight was lifted off my shoulders and I could view her behaviour with more compassion. .
After 8 days of sobriety I’ve started feeling stronger and being braver with work decisions and pushing myself forward for things, relishing new challenges and getting a real buzz out of overcoming my fears. Something I’ve always found so hard. .
In The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck @markmansonnet
explains how we are all fundamentally problem solvers and this resonated so much with my swotty, school girl character that I’m now starting to put it into practice and shift situations in my mind that cause me stress and worry to interesting problems that I can solve. I get such a buzz when I over come a new challenge. It’s a shift in thinking and I hope its creating new connections in my weird brain. .
Anyway off for a bath now as I went to yoga tonight for the first time in months and basically nearly died
