So, my counselor in my session asked me a question that I have never even thought of before. “What defines you?”
I couldn’t answer her. I just stared at her blankly.
Why? Because I didn’t have an answer.
You could get me on a soapbox really easy about what I’m NOT, but when you reverse that question, I didn’t have an answer.
I can tell you that I am not a number on a scale, I am not a dress size, I am not a size 0, but… what really defines me? So, here I go. I am going to attempt to tell you who I am.
I am person; I have feelings and passions.
I am a health freak. I love to workout and spend time in the gym.
I am a photographer.
I am a blogger.
I am an adventurer who wants to see the world.
I am worth something, even though I spend half my day telling myself that I’m not.
I am someone that is going to change the world someday.
I am someone that will have complete recovery one day.
I am hoping that eventually, someday, I can make a part 2 and finish this list. I am going to put this on my long-term goals, possibly towards the end of my recovery. I don’t know if that will be this year or 5 years from now. But, I know I will have recovery.
I am NOT my eating disorder.
I am stronger than this.
