Eating disorder recovery is not easy. It demands resilience, vulnerability, and self-compassion. You’re in charge of your recovery. However, remember that seeking support in eating disorder recovery is a strength, not a weakness.
Asking for support in eating disorder recovery allows room for you to be human. Recovery can get really difficult and feel long. Part of getting back up after a setback, continuing on when you’re not sure anymore, and celebrating the wins is having a circle you trust. Your circle might include friends, family, dietitians, therapists, support groups, teachers, or other trusted individuals. They offer empathy and remind you that you’re not alone.
It’s important to acknowledge that not everyone may fully understand the complexities of eating disorders or be equipped to offer the support you need at the time you need it. If this happens, remember to practice self-compassion. It’s okay to have limitations, and it doesn’t diminish your worth. It’s also an opportunity to explore alternative sources of support. This could include reaching out to a mentor, participating in a support group, or engaging in creative outlets.
Eating disorder recovery can feel really isolating at times, but remember you’re not alone in this 💕
