Honey, you're beautiful.

You

Are

B e a u t i f u l

You are beautiful and you are strong.
You are better than you think.
You don't need those diet pills, you don't need to purge, you don't need to restrict, or anything like that.
You, you, that's YOU yourself, you are BEAUTIFUL no matter what ANYONE says.

You don't need to do these things. It doesn't matter what you think you need to do - that's a lie. That is what you want to do. You don't need to. You are in control. Right now, what you want.. it's clouding that control. You are LETTING something else control you. You are letting something horrible control you - that thing is making you do those things. But that's no excuse, because it does not have more power over you, you're just letting it. But you don't have to. You can stop. Now.

The fact that you've told us today means that you know there's something wrong with it.

There's something wrong with restricting and purging and taking the pills.

So you don't want to stop. So somewhere in you you KNOW it's still wrong. So forget what you want. Don't think about it. Don't think at all. Just act.
You can act, now.
No matter what you say you'll do, no matter how many times you say you'll stop, or whatever, it won't make it happen.
What makes it happen is to act.

You have to act.
You have to stop.

It's a choice, happy and healthy and beautiful, or sick and unhealthy and death.

No one wants to see the latter happen.

Forget what you want and just do what's best for you.

Recovery is possible.

But you have to do it now. Not tomorrow, not the day after, not next year, not after you've lost a few pounds and a few inches,
you have to just do it NOW.

And if I can't convince, just watch this.

Thank you so much!
I just really wish I could help everyone, y'know..
I'll do anything to make them better,
but in the end, they have to do it themselves, so I guess I'll have to stick to trying to show them what they need to see... :heart:

As i said in a comment just a moment ago, if you're a nice person it doesn't matter how thin or fat you are. you're beauty comes from within, from who you are. Not what you are =)

And if you're willing to admit what you see as problems in a PostSecret then I can safely say that you're an amazing and beautiful person =)

Hope you're ok <3

It's better to be healthy than to be thin... you'll live longer, and probably be happier. (I'm serious; exercise can help release endorphins-and who doesn't love those babies? xD )

My test of physical fitness is this--> if it were the end of the world and zombies were coming, would I survive?
Sounds silly I know...but plan for the worst, aye? xD
I'd rather be a bigger pants size and have muscle than be a proverbial stick who could walk a runway, but couldn't run to save her life. ;)

My sister had anorexia. She almost died.
Don't do that to yourself.

I used to be chubby, but even though I grew out of the weight, those "piggy" thought never seen to go away.

That actually is a serious disease, ST. First of all - you gotta let your mind believe that you CAN be thin enough, and that you're probably already quite there.

Otherwise, you might cause some serious damage to yourself.

You're crazy.
I fucked up my heart doing that shit.
You have to eat full meals in order to take those pills. Especially if they are like stackers or something. I almost had a heart attack at 17 because of this stupid obsession.
Get help. :(

Oh, I know they're Tylenol as well. I thought I would be the only one noticing. Yeah, it's probably a stock photo, because they look like fancy pills.

ST, before its too late, stop this, or get help if you can. Because these disorders are like a viscious cycle. Looking like a half-dead stick insect is not beautiful, it's ugly and scary. It's not worth all the regret youll have later; I know this because I got myself out of anorexia when I was younger, and I'm so happy I recovered before anything serious happened. Get help. :hug: Good luck, ST.

ST, there is no "thin enough". Don't think other people will like you better if you starve yourself. Other people will like you better if you're healthy and happy, it's that simple. Please ask someone for help - don't keep this a secret. :hug:

ST, you shouldn't care what size you are! It doesn't matter; personality counts, not shape and looks.
Please don't do this, ST.. you'll end up doing more harm than it's worth. :hug:

And I'm sorry to hear you do this, when really you should know that everyone is beautiful the way they are, and nobody else really cares about how you look; it's only you. So is it really worth doing if it's only you you're pleasing? Why not leave yourself how you are and learn to be happy with yourself instead; that way you'll please EVERYONE. :huggle:

Think about it ST. Be careful. :hug:

=[ You remind me of someone I knew.
I cared for her, she was my friend.
she let me go.
But she did all this.
We feared for her, because once, she took 20 pills.
Don't go over bored, get help.

If this is her, I miss you.
