They told me my butt was sticking out
They said my frame wasn’t built to carry “this much” weight
They said I used to seem hungry & now I seemed full
All ways of saying… your body is wrong.
You aren’t trying hard enough.
You aren't GOOD enough.
Leaving the ballet world was only the beginning of my healing journey.
👉🏻 When I felt out of control and gained weight, I reminded myself that this was the price of true freedom and finding my natural weight, and that eventually things would balance out to where they should be
👉🏻 When other people made comments about my weight, I anchored myself in the fact that no one who knew how hard it was to heal would ever say those things
👉🏻 When I caught an unflattering angle in the mirror, I took a deep breath and remembered that we ALL have unflattering angles and no amount of weight loss can ever solve it
👉🏻 When my mind was telling me to restrict I made sure to add in snacks to evade it’s tactics
I reminded myself constantly that the only way out was THROUGH all the uncomfortable phases that I was going through.
And I made it.
No matter what uncomfortable phase you’re in right now (and there are many) DON’T GIVE UP.
Healing can be painful. Hang in there.
You are ON YOUR WAY to freedom in this very moment.
Know that as you seek freedom, it is also seeking you.
Freedom IS your destiny. You have what it takes. You are enough. You always WERE enough.
You are just unlearning all the shit that convinced you otherwise.
Spread the freakin HOPE and send this to a friend today!
If you’re ready give the finger to the shit you were told and start down the path towards freedom, I have a couple spots open for 1:1 coaching rn! Slide into the DMs💕
