There was a quote I stumbled across in the feed of instagram. Not just the quote hit me, but the image was of a girl in the midst of a run. You could tell she was on the move somewhere. In a strange sort of way, you were drawn into the picture as you wanted to know where she was headed... She was clearly headed somewhere. . .
The quote read: UNBROKEN: She does not let her past define her
So, I used to think no matter how thin or petty I was, I would never be thin or pretty enough to be valuable and lovable. I battled food restriction, addictions, and even working out too much! I had the coined "female athlete triad" disorder where you don't eat enough for workouts & yet loved the number on the scale or the size of jeans I could fit into, so it was a vicious cycle. I remember feeling worthless for years as I struggled to overcome the lies
As i listened to him speak, an all too familiar thought crossed my mind.
“This doesnt apply to you girl...He’s talking to people that don’t have the struggles that you do. You’ve already had your chance and you missed it, so somehow you have to learn to survive and carry on. This is the lot you got in life”
Hmmm. thats odd. I knew I’ve heard that voice before, but for some reason this time it didn’t seem very convincing. I mean it did, but right in the middle of church?
