The picture on the left, I was always self conscious of how big I was standing next to my friends. I was unhappy even though I was always smiling, and no one knew I had an eating disorder. It was a huge down point in my life. I was in college, depressed, & felt so disconnected from the world. I disliked how I felt around others because I was uncomfortable in my own skin. One day I told myself I needed to start loving myself because there were others who loved me and cared about me. About five years later, here I am, physically and mentally stronger. Many small steps led me to today. Stay strong and keep moving forward.
