The glamour of eating problems. So adorable how my whole day got interrupted with a hospital visit. So cute how I knocked myself out by standing up too fast. Doesn’t that sound FUN? “I stop eating until they take me to the hospital.” Yay! I’m finally Cassie! Ruining my own life, abusing myself, and losing the ability to do ANYTHING else was SO worth it!
Why would I want to live a full, happy life when I can SACRIFICE everything good I have going for me so I can imitate a TV show? Lol so ~ana~ guize!!
If you weren’t sure, all of that was sarcasm.
Listen up pro-anas: This is the result of your thinspo, your ana diets, your tips and tricks. People end up in the hospital. And it isn’t fun or cute. Your crush doesn’t come rushing in to comfort you. Neither do your friends. You just sit up there all alone completely mortified while an asshole laughs about how the dumb girl “thinks not-eating is healthy.”
There are no fireworks. No fanfare. No one says “wow, you’re REALLY sick!” They just shake their heads at you and tell you to be more careful, consider getting a dietician, stay hydrated.
NO ONE CARES. You guys build eating disorders up in your heads as these awesome, respectable things that will get you attention and make you beloved, but NO ONE ACTUALLY CARES. An eating disorder is not a coupon you cash in for popularity points. It doesn’t work like that. You’re a dime a dozen. You’re a brick in the wall. Think EDs make you special? Think again.
Is this really worth it? Is torturing yourself and turning disorders into diets and fashion statements worth it?
No. It isn’t. At all.
You won’t achieve your goals with pro-ana. Not unless your goal is to be ignored, looked at like you don’t have a brain, or dead.

1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.

2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.

3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.

4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.

5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.

Five things I am trying very hard to accept (via aumoe)

When you find yourself drowning in self-hate, you have to remind yourself that you weren’t born feeling this way. That at some point in your journey, some person or experience sent you the message that there was something wrong with who you are, and you internalized those messages and took them on as your truth. But that hate isn’t yours to carry, and those judgments aren’t about you. And in the same way that you learned to think badly of yourself, you can learn to think new, self-loving and accepting thoughts. You can learn to challenge those beliefs, take away their power, and reclaim your own. It won’t be easy, and it won’t happen over night. But it is possible. And it starts when you decide that there has to be more to life than this pain you feel. It starts when you decide that you deserve to discover it.
