this may be my shortest blog post ever. because this video says it all. this is my why. why i do what i do. why i’m driven everyday to make a difference. why your stories make me want to be a better me. the fact is this: eating disorders are real, people. depression shows no mercy. they are gnarly and battles that even i struggle with to this day. this is me being me. i’d rather be open and honest than spend one more day feeling like a fake or a fraud. my fear is that by you seeing the real me, that i won’t be able to inspire you. but i’m learning that it’s not my story to keep to myself. if by sharing my struggle i can help even one person, it has served its purpose.
“i’m thankful for my struggle because without it I wouldn’t have stumbled across my strength.”
