"Trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember someone you never knew."
"Writing is art to the blind, music to the deaf, comfort to the broken, and emotions to the expressionless."

I've come to love the burning in my stomach,
I've come to love the hunger.
"Just 5 more pounds."
That's what I tell myself after I step off the scales,
So close to double digits,
I can't give up now,
Ive worked so hard I can't go back now,
When you see me,
You see the rib cage and count can every single one,
You see my hair falling out,
I see the skin disguising itself as fat,
I feel disgusting,
5'8" 111 pounds.
I've come to love that burning in my stomach,
I've come to love the hunger<3

The only people who don't get anywhere are the people who don't dream of a better place for themselves...

Obsession with self-image. Striving to be perfect... Oh, but don't you realize when you're YOURSELF that you're truly beautiful? This made me cry...
