I started today with a smile on my face and a feeling of joy for no apparent reason. But, like always, as the day went on I lost any reason to feel happy. I don’t understand why my mind doesn’t allow me to enjoy life. Why do I tear myself apart and refuse to let myself see the beauty everyone else tells me I have? I want to appreciate the life I have and be thankful for the blessings I’ve been given.
If you’re willing, I would like to start a weekly challenge for anyone else who faces these same problems I do.
A challenge to smile at every person you see in a day.
A challenge to say “I am beautiful” in front of a mirror every day.
A challenge to talk to someone when you’re feeling lonely.
A challenge not to harm yourself.
A challenge to eat 3 healthy meals in a day and not purge.
A challenge to truly believe that you’re worthy of happiness.
If you’re willing to take the challenge, so am I <3
