My friend wrote a huge post about his struggle with anorexia nervosa. And how he ate a whole unsupervised lunch today for the first time in two years… The post brought tears to my eyes, and made me a bit upset, but mostly incredibly proud and inspired.
I knew he was dealing with these issues. But apparently most people didn’t. I was expecting people to be the usual shitheads they are. But not a single one of the 51 comments was malicious. People can surprise you in so many ways. The fact that people didn’t see what was going on with him in incredible to me. The fact that people are so blind. But they went and turned that around when EVERY SINGLE PERSON was super supportive and encouraging. It restored a little of my faith in people.
I am so proud of him. And you all should be, too. :)
