You can't compare what’s going on inside of you to someone else’s outsides. You’ll never get the full picture of what’s really going on. At the height of my disordered eating craziness, I was the image of a smiling, happy, thin, size two/four, everything-is-perfect-on-the-outside kind of gal. Yet, inside I deeply despised myself—and no one knew.
I’m not saying every woman you see is like this, but some are. You’d be surprised to learn how many women struggle with their body image.
There are so many women who look like they have it all together: secure job, good family life, fun friends, and a stable life. And inside, their souls are being crushed by the weight of hating their bodies and wrestling with food demons. Yet their social media profiles probably look radiant, confident, and amazing.
So before you go ahead and say that they have the better life because they’re skinnier, remember that you never know what’s going on inside of them.
