Why do I still think that being thinner will make me happy? I’ve already been there and I was still miserable, but eds are dumbshits who tell you “it will be different next time if you try harder” likewtf
This is extremely insulting. Thanks so much for telling people with EDs that they are dumbshits.
?? Okay please reread it. I am calling the eating disorders dumbshits, not those with eating disorders. I have an ED, thank you, so learn how to read before you nail me about insulting you.
Having an eating disorder is like being unable to stop touching a hot stove. You get burned over and over again, and yet, your brain continues to tell you to touch the red hot surface, even after your hand is blistered and destroyed. People look at you like you’re crazy, because they will never understand why you do it, because they know it’s completely illogical, but are powerless to stop you. And when you put your hand on the stove and hear the sizzle of your skin melting and the smell of flesh burning, you take your hand back and cry. You put it under cold water to sooth it, but the water dripping down your hand doesn’t stop the tears dripping down your face, because you know it will only be time before you touch the stove again. -(via edcynic)
A warrior feeds her body well. She trains it, works on it. Where she lacks knowledge, she studies. But above all, she must believe in her strength of will and purpose and heart and soul. -David Gemmel (via tobeheal-ed)
