"I had thought my eating disorder showed me strength and willpower, but I realized that the harder thing to do was not engage in behaviors and notice how much stronger I felt each time I disobeyed it. I noticed how much more people genuinely enjoyed my company when I was not using my eating disorder behaviors and how much more love I got when I was doing the harder thing. I finally realized that I wanted to live and have relationships more than I wanted my eating disorder."
