I'm not trying to argue, but saying "it's okay to be imperfect" doesn't make us believe it. Eating disorders are complex, serious, mental health issues, and telling us to stop or getting our blogs terminated do not help us. Maybe instead of reporting us, you could try to understand what we go through, and try to help us, because getting our blog deleted doesn't really help.@Anonymous
If you even bothered to read anything about my blog you’d know that I have suffered from an eating disorder since I was 15. I’m now 21. It’s been hell.
This blog does not exist to shame people nor is it out here to attack sufferers not in recovery etc. it exists to offer some help with recovery and staying positive. The term “it’s okay to be imperfect” is not meant to be taken in a face value kind of way, and by no means is it a cure for this horrific, soul-destroying illness!! But it’s about accepting your flaws and fighting your inner perfectionist.
I’m also only about reporting blogs that exist to solely promote thinspiration, weight loss and negativity. I too want to protect sufferers who use tumblr and other blog platforms as a diary and emotional outlet as much as possible!
So, yeah, read the entirety of my blog before you attack it. I feel insulted you think I’d make a recovery blog without having gone through this devasting process, of course eating disorders are complex and serious!! They are the number 1 cause of death in mental health. I take eating disorders very seriously and although deleting blogs and positive messages can’t cure an eating disorder I do believe my blog and other blogs like it can offer a safe, positive community for sufferers wishing to recover.
