We scorn girls for caring about their appearance too much then turn around and scorn them for not caring enough when they stop.
Trying to be pretty in a world that values beauty isn’t a crime.
Trying to challenge a world that values beauty too highly isn’t a crime either.
The images we associate with Eating Disorders:
-Black and white photos.
-Empty plates with mottos on them
-Measuring tape with no numbers
-Scales with question marks
-Half eaten apples next to whole apples
-Hidden food that’s gone rotten
Tried hard to put the appropriate trigger warnings in the tags. Finally felt able to make a video on self-harm. Not just telling you that “it’ll be okay”, but techniques on how to stop or replace damaging methods and people you can tell and trust. Also thoughts on what to do when you have a friend who is self-harming. I hope this is helpful.
