Find your identity

All too often people take on the identity of their diagnosis. People say, “I’m anorexic” or “I’m bulimic” or “I’m EDNOS”, they are taking the disease as an identity.

For today, challenge this identity. If you find yourself saying something like “I’m bulimic” or “I’m anorexic” try to change that into “I have anorexia” or “I suffer with bulimia”. Along with challenging the thoughts, try to find who you really are.

I am:

A daughter.

A sister.

A friend.

A singer.

A writer. 

A nurturer.

A dreamer. 

A fighter. 

A survivor.
