Components of self-care. (It’s not just manis and pedis, y’all.)
Today, I want to “forget” to pack a snack for work. I want to skip work. I want to trash all the food in my pantry. I want to run until I collapse, then get right back up and start again.
Basically, what I’m saying is, I want to quit recovery. I want my eating disorder because it is so much easier. I want to know that I’m good at something. I want a way to get rid of this stress.
Instead, I’ll take a shower. I’ll go to work. I’ll eat a snack, then dinner, then another snack. I’ll come home and read. I will take my medications and go to sleep.
And I will wake up again tomorrow and do it all over again, even if I’d rather not.

Your poor 90s fashion choices are not the same as someone who has experienced rape, war, torture, or any other trauma.
