I don't need a thigh gap. I don't need a flat belly. I don't need to be able to see my ribs. I don't need to look like a catwalk model. I don't need the biggest boobs. I don't need to be wolf-whistled by every guy I see. I just need to be able to feel comfortable in my own skin. That's all I need.
Sometimes recovery is waking up early to write in coffee shops and practicing yoga and eating lots of fruit and chocolate and sometimes it’s staying in bed all day and hiding from the world until you can stop crying. All of this is okay. What’s important is that you take care of yourself no matter what kind of day you’re having.
