Self-love revolution

Hi there!

Perhaps you already know about the self-love revolution. This idea belongs to Amy from A is for Ampersand. I want to get involved. I want to spread the world about self-love and self-esteem.

This is going to be a personal post. It's still hard for me to talk about this subject, but I'll do my best. I wanted to start a series about self-love a long time ago. I didn't do it. Maybe because I am a small blogger and I can't create a revolution. Maybe because I wasn't ready to talk about all these.

Well, now it's the time. I am ready. I know I can. I know we can. Here there are the reasons why I want to get involved:
  • I am a recovering anorexic. It's true. I said it only a couple of times in the past, because it hurts me to talk about it. The only reason I tell people I was an anorexic is because I don't want them to do the same mistake.
  • Anorexia is a real disease. It it not normal to hate yourself. It is not a girl thing. It is not stupid. People die. I was about to die.
  • February is National Eating Disorder Awareness Month
  • I don't want other people to do the same mistake
  • I was helped to recover. My family was there for me. My real friends were there for me. That's why I want to help.

I know people judge. I was judged. I was ignored by most of the people. I am a person who wants to do everything perfect, I am a person who want to be appreciated and loved. That's why I continued to starve myself. I though that if I was skinny, people will like me for who I was. It was exactly the opposite.

My message is to love yourself. Appreciate yourself. Give yourself a chance. Nobody's perfect. I want to encourage Amy in this revolution. It's worth it. Life itself is worth it.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to read this post. I means a lot to me. If you want to spread the world, take the button from Amy's blog.

Much love,

    The revolution idea is really great and I want to get involved too :) talk to you soon on gmail

  2. Thank yuo so so much for sharing!! And for joining on the revolution. It means the world to me. Thank you so much for helping me spread the word that it's not a joke, it's not a lifestyle choice--it's a disease and one of the largest killers of women. You are beautiful, and I appreciate your bravery so much. I hope you and I can always share our story to stop EDs from stealing others' lives. <3<3<3

  3. Aw, Larisa I'm so proud of you for sharing this with us. & for continuing to fight and recover.

    This is such a great idea. I suffer from depression (and anxiety and insomnia) so this would be a great idea for me to participate, too. Thanks so much, Larisa.

  4. Your blog is lovely - and so do you :) I like your paintings very much, I think you have talent and sensibility, and a bright future in illustration. Your past shaped this future, this talent, and deserved to be embraced. Kiss you, sweet girl!

  5. This has really touched my heart, thank you, Larisa, for sharing, and I,m happy you are now here with us and can share your beautiful thoughts and paintings :)
    Remember the post where I wrote how awful it was to be alone? That was exactly the time when I decided to keep a diet, so to say, I thought it would help me to make new friends, though I wasn,t heavy at all. I started starving myself too,thanks god, that wasn,t anorexia, but this was really hard to overcome. My mom helped me a lot.

    Thank you once more, dear :)
