I was wondering and interested in other people's thoughts on this. This morning i was walking by the river when I saw a girl of probably around 17 years of age. She was clearly anorexic. I just wanted to go up to her and say :
Hey, You may want to tell me to go take a running jump but I just wanted to share something with you. I wanted to tell her how beautiful she was even thought she probably doesn't see it. You could see it if she wasn't so skeletal she would be.
I wanted her to know that I had been where she was and I didn't want her to go through possibly a lifetime of suffering like me. Of probably going through years of therapy and counselling that probably won't even work. No doubt her anorexia would turn into bulimia. I just wanted to say there is a fantastic website called BH and if she wasn't ready for it to keep it in the back of her mind.
Anyway, I didn't say anything but kept on walking. I feel SO guilty for not sharing it with her. I think that everyone who has a problem should be given the chance to see it for themselves.
DO you think this would be a bad thing to do??? WOuld you do it??? I would really be interested to hear people's thoughts as next time, i may just pluck up the courage to do this?
I hope you are having a nice weekend wherever you are and look forward to hearing people's thoughts
Thanks m x
