Please do not substitute material on this site for consultation with a mental health professional. I’ve lived as much of my life as I can remember hating anything and everything about myself. This marks a new dawn in my own recovery journey, embracing #stopselfhate on a daily basis.
Best of luck to you on your journey and congratulations on your new best friend – yourself!

From the way my hair would always curl out at one side, and under at the other, the way it was always my fault when someone was angry or upset, to how big my bum was. I’ve been diagnosed with osteoporosis and warned of the ominous threat of spinal fracture from simply lifting too much, chronic fatigue syndrome has stolen 8 months of the last two years, and other chronic conditions are the legacy that I have to live with.
I’m finally at a point in my recovery where I truly hate ED far more than I hate myself. Central to it all, #stopselfhate reminds me that there is nothing to hate in the first place, finding that I am not so hateful as I thought. This is a lifelong challenge, for sure, and I hope you can find some of the same inspiration in your readers’ letters as they have found from you!

I CAN #stopselfhate and I CAN start to show my body, myself the respect and care that it truly deserves.
Indeed completely the opposite, that my body is a miracle, that I am worthy for who I am and that who I am is actually pretty good, actually. I was totally blinded by all of this that I have ended up spending the last 15 years, half of my life, starving myself.
I am #grateful to it for putting up with me, for giving me all the chances it has, for hanging in there through everything.
