please don’t use numbers/explicit eating disordered behaviors on anon if you expect me to answer your question!!! primarily because i don’t wanna trigger anyone else but also because it’s not cool to expect me to read that stuff either

Heyyy Colleen (: how are you doing? Would you be up to posting an update? xx

Hello!!! I’ve actually started an update post like 12 times today but it keeps getting jumbly and weird and then I pet my dogs instead oops. Expect one tonight!!


Sometimes I feel dumb for celebrating little things like getting out of bed in time or eating enough. But then I remember that I would be so proud of those achievements if they were somebody else’s and I deserve the same kind of love and care


I am missing you most in the silence between songs on my favourite records. Sometimes it takes so long for the music to start.

When you’ve hit bottom in your life and are suffering deeply, that’s the time to be strong. Don’t give up; instead, look at yourself and say, “Enough is enough. I won’t get caught in this pattern again. Today is the day it ends.”

im in one of those periods in my life where i cant focus on anything i cant finish an assignment i cant listen to one song for more than 5 seconds i cant sit through a tv show episode i cant finish a book i cant write a story

all i can do is stare blankly at the wall and wish i had something to do but everything i could do or want to do is just supremely unsatisfying
