One of the reasons for writing a book about my experience and journey of having an eating disorder is to share what I went through.
As scary as it is it, I want to provide hope and to let others know that recovery is possible.
I know that recovery is possible.
I want to be authentic, I want to write from my heart and I want to be real.
As much as I am really nervous about sharing what I went through and I am feeling very vulnerable about it (I really am), I know that I need to write it.
Courage is what I need and courage is a good thing (I am saying this to myself as well).
It takes courage for me to go through my journals and to relive the situations that I went through.
It takes courage for me to re-read what I had written in those dark lonely days. It takes courage for me to re-read the struggle that I went through.
When I was going through my journey I journaled a lot, journaling helped me to express what I was feeling. I needed to journal because I couldn’t really talk to anyone about it. I couldn’t find the words to express what I was going through and also I was just too exhausted.
My message is that – Recovery Is Possible.
Will share more soon.
