Victoria, @mrs._foxx ,you asked me a few weeks ago what my thoughts were on how I got an eating disorder. My answer was the scientific and common answer, that I had family that also had eating disorders, I was around people who talked about dieting and being skinny, and I was constantly seeing skinny models, actresses, and “idols” being skinny and preaching a tinier body.
However, what I forgot to answer you with was this —> I got an eating disorder because I was looking for validation and acceptance in the eyes of the world. I was trying to fit a mold of bodily perfection that the world created, but what I neglected to realize was that I already was beautiful and perfect, just not to the world.
In the eyes of God I am his perfect creation, I was born with a perfect body, my perfect body, and by straying from God’s image and plan for me, and trying to fit the worlds, I had forgotten what truly mattered. Not my body, or my physical health, but my spiritual relationship with the Heavenly Father and that his love and his view of his people outweighs the eyes of the world’s.
Trying to attract the love of the world and be noticed is not ever going to work, besides it’s a waste of time and not worth it.
You were born with the love from someone bigger than this world and the love of billions of people occupying it, you were born in the eyes of God who sculpted you in his image, don’t break Gods will for you by following what you think the world wants. “We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19 “I have always loved you,” says the lord.” Malachi 1:2
