Just a thought

If a rope is broken & tied back together, the rope is then strongest at the exact point where it was once broken.... There CAN be blessings from this hell we have all experienced. We can come out of this stronger than ever! Who do you admire more - someone who has never been broken or someone who has been blown to bits & put back together? Hmmmmm......................

I have to agree. It's hard

I have to agree. It's hard to accept, but we can look at our suffering as a chance to gain strength. we can learn so much about ourselves in the process of overcoming bulimia, things we may have never thought about if it hadn't come to this point.

Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain.

I completely agree. One thing

I completely agree. One thing that has struck me about everyone on this site is how kind, supportive and emotionally intelligent everyone here seems to be and we can see that in others, but often not in ourselves. It reminds me of this quote I stumbled across. A lot of people seem to be in professions that involve taking care of other people and once we equip ourselves with the tools to treat ourselves with the same kindness and patience and heal ourselves, we are even better equipped to help others (in any context) and share any wisdom we may have gained through the process:

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” - Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
