Eating disorders and distorted image perceptions affect everybody! By @projectheal “An important article regarding boys and body image. “Despite public perception, body image issues and eating disorders are not exclusively female problems. The oft-cited figure is that about 1 in 10 eating disorders occur in males, but according to Raymond Lemberg, an Arizona clinical psychologist and expert in the area, newer research suggests that the real ratio is probably closer to 1 in 4.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/17/body-image-boys_n_5637975.html

@bodylove4all #selfcareseptemberDay 28 is Forgiveness ♥ 
————————————————
The power of forgiveness was monumental in my recovery and is essential for my every day life. I was continuing to live my life in my disorders and addictions and and was not dealing with the underlying issues that were hurting my soul, while all the people from my past were out in the world living their lives. It was imperative that I forgave them and forgave myself also because Jesus had already paid that price. I was  carrying around burdens upon burdens of heaviness that I didn’t have to. God loves us always, and He forgives us immediately.  So this lesson of forgiveness was critical in my road of healing from abuse, depression, suicidal thoughts,  addiction, low self esteem, relationship problems,  and my long battle with my eating disorders because it allowed me to let go of a lot of the underlying pain that I was using to still remain a victim in life.
There is now love and forgiveness, beauty and prosperity in my soul where there once was a dry, crusty well. The Love of God fills me like nothing else. ♥

@bodylove4all #selfcareseptember Day 26 is Where my home is♥ well, I can honestly say that after traveling all over this beautiful world, and noy being at peace with myself for most of my life, I came to be happy when I was stuck in four walls of home care for recovery. I had to learn that I had to be happy within myself before I could be happy anywhere else.  No amount of travelling could fix that, and no amount of anything could fulfill me. I believe that my home, my happiness lies within my heart ♥

Please come out this October 5th to show support and receive more love than you can imagine in the eating disorder community, with @nedastaff @Aerie and more ♥ 
I walk every year because I am so proud of every step I take that moves me forward into freedom and away from the disorder that once threatened to take my life.
