Growth is always something to celebrate, don’t get me wrong -- but sometimes the recovery community can do this the wrong way. Although we scream “Your problems are valid! Eating disorders come at all shapes and sizes!”, we seem to contradict this when we post dramatic before and after photos, talk about how horrifically sick we used to be or how little we used to eat and weigh. It’s as if we’re only trying to validate ourselves or act as though destroying ourselves was something to be proud of.
