I make some pretty hefty vows to myself sometimes, such as:
I will eat more tomorrow
I will never binge ever again
I will only eat x until x
I will do extra exercise everyday even when I’m dancing hours a day already
Yep. I have no sense of human limitations or kindness towards myself. I think the happiest people I know make vows to themselves that are flexible. Like I will eat more fruit this week than last week.
Eating disorders are rigid. Mine makes me feel that sticking to my vows is perfect and anything else is failure. Eating disorders are liars.
