The past few weeks have been a difficult journey for me. I recently learned that an influencer I admired, Eugenia Cooney, has suffered from an eating disorder and it made me realize how fragile life can be. I’m also in the same position as Eugenia because I’ve struggled with eating disorders all through my life too. It’s heartbreaking to know someone so wonderful is going through the same thing as you.
At the end of the day, we’re both fighting our own battles. My battle with an eating disorder started when I was a young teenager and has stayed with me ever since. It requires a lot of hard work every single day to stay healthy, but it’s worth every effort to take care of myself.
I understand how difficult it is for Eugenia and many others who suffer from this illness. It takes immense strength and willpower to get better, but you can’t do it alone. Don’t be afraid to ask for help if needed; your friends and family might not understand exactly what you’re going through but they’ll try their best to support you in any way they can.
These past weeks have been eye-opening and extremely emotional for me, but despite everything I still remain hopeful that we can both get through this together and come out even stronger on the other side.
