What doesn’t kill you…

Found this quote the other day, and thought it was very true:

“Anorexia was, is and always will be my life now, from age 13. They say I am recovered, but I know I’ll relapse someday. After all what doesn’t kill you… will probably try again.”

It’s grim, but it reflects the thoughts of most anorexics/’recovered’ anorexics everywhere.


Book Quotes

We turn skeletons into goddesses and look to them as if they can teach us how not to need.
Marya Hornbacher

Who wants to recover? It took me years to get that tiny. I wasn’t sick; I was strong.
Laurie Halse Henderson, Wintergirls

“I am forever engaged in a silent battle in my head over whether or not to lift the fork to my mouth, and when I talk myself into doing so, I taste only shame. I have an eating disorder.”
― Jena Morrow, Hollow: An Unpolished Tale

Desperation Quote

People react and do things when they feel desperate that they may not ever do in any other circumstance. People become desperate for different reasons.


I CAN’T but I CAN~ quote

I CAN’T make you happy, or angry, or sad – those are your feelings, and your responsibility – not mine

I CAN’T please everyone

I CAN’T save the world

I CAN’T be everything to everyone, and not lose myself in the process

I CAN’T go through life without making mistakes

I CAN’T be perfect

Heck, I CAN’T even be ALMOST perfect




I CAN smile and laugh and love

I CAN be compassionate

I CAN be empathetic

I CAN be kind to others

I CAN make a difference 

I CAN be sunshiny and bright

I CAN drive myself to be the best I can be 

I CAN choose to see the best in others

I CAN do more than I ever imagined – physically, mentally, and emotionally

I CAN sing and dance when no one is watching

I CAN sing and dance when EVERYONE is watching

I CAN be strong

I CAN be crazy and spontaneous and even a little bit silly 

I CAN be me. 


Anorexia is not a phase

“Selfharm is not a trend. Anorexia is not a phase. Depression is not an act. Homosexuality is not a choice. Suicide is not the result of cowardice. I’m so sick and tired of picking on others because of a disorder or a choice. If a friend is cutting, you f#cking help them, you don’t just point at them and called them “f#cking emo.” People need to stop interfering in other peoples lives and just stick to their own.” – Annonymous
