This is a blog that has been created in the hopes that it can be a safe haven and a source of inspiration and education for those who are in recovery, particularly from an eating disorder. As far as I am concerned, the family and friends of those afflicted are also in recovery. Submissions of stories and photos are welcome; have a read and a smile!
"I always hear “It’s okay not to be okay” and for a while I needed to hear that, but there was something else I needed to hear but didn’t realize until today. I was struggling with guilt about moving on and leaving the past behind and healing myself.
My therapist said this:
“It’s okay to be okay. It is okay to move on. It is okay to heal. It is okay to be happy. It is okay to be alright. You are not deserting anyone. You are not abandoning the people still in the dark place. You are taking care of yourself and there is NOTHING wrong with that.”"Internal Acceptance Movement: (via firesfade)
