The bravest thing I ever did was continuing my life when I wanted to die.

Destruction can be beautiful to some people. Don’t ask me why. It just is. And if they can’t find anything to destroy, they destroy themselves.

- Eating disorders in the media: I didn't eat for three days so I could be lovely.
- Eating disorders in real life: I didn't poop for 3 weeks because FML.
to be honest, I hate going out because I’m so jealous of everyone I see because they’re all so beautiful and I’m just like the ugliest piece of shit ever lol
I was hit head-on by a brutal loneliness. I felt dark and hollow. Abandoned, unnoticed, forgotten, I stood on the sidewalk, a nothing, a gatherer of dust. People hurried past me. And everyone who walked by was happier than I. I felt the old envy. I would have given anything to be one of them.

- looking at myself: why
And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened.
