When I started this blog, over a year ago, I was in a dark place with my mental health, and I didn’t even realize it. At the time, I weighed much less than what was healthy for my body, I was sad, crying almost everyday, and I let what I thought of my physical appearance take over my whole world. Since then, I have learned that the road to recovery is not easy, rather one of the hardest things someone has to go through. Today, I recognize that I will truly never be recovered, but I will always be striving to better myself and my mental health. I still have days where I want to curl up into a ball and never leave bed because I’m so down or self-conscious about my body, but I have come to terms with the fact that recovery isn’t linear. It will have many ups and down and bumps in the road, but I want to use my hardships and victories to help motivate people who are going through the same thing I am. I want to be a friend, a companion, and a motivator to anyone who feels that they will never conquer the demons they call mental health. This blog is a sanctuary to anyone who is struggling, a safe space to be yourself, and a reminder that everything will get better.
