I feel certain that every one of us knows someone who has struggled with an eating disorder at some point in their lives. Yet, it seems as though eating disorder recovery isn’t as celebrated as addiction recovery. At Spirit Recovered, we celebrate recovery from all afflictions, in all forms, and by all means.
The symbol on this keychain represents recovery from eating disorders. We are free to nourish our bodies and care for them, protect them the way they protect us. We learn to love ourselves with all of our flaws and to celebrate our bodies the way they deserve.
We’ve made war with our bodies and now we’ve laid down our weapons and embraced ourselves. Loving ourselves is hard. Loving our bodies can be even harder. We make a conscious decision, day in and day out, to be kind to ourselves. When we’re hungry, we eat. When we’re full, we stop. We exercise without passing out.
Today, we celebrate the hard work it’s taken to get here. We celebrate a newfound appreciated for what our bodies do for us. We celebrate leaving our obsessive friends behind and moving forward into a healthy, positive life in recovery.
On the front of the eating disorder recovery symbol is one word: ‘warrior’. More precisely, “warr;or” with a semicolon, representing the choice that we made to continue moving forward.
