I had a really hard weekend with my eating disorder this past weekend, it has been extremely loud and really put me down and in a low mood. So this morning I've been looking back on my recovery journey so far, reflecting on all the benefits recovery has given me, reminding myself why I'm in recovery and giving myself inspiration to stick to my recovery.

But you best believe that as hard as it is to challenge, Im going to challenge it when I wake up, because challenging it is the only way to stop fearing it, to gain back freedom and your dreams.
