Practicing Self-Respect for Eating Disorder Recovery

By: Alison Ross, LMFT, CEDS

It's normal to want people to like you. ๐Ÿ˜Š But it's extraordinary to genuinely like yourself so that even when you don't receive the respect you deserve, you still know your worth. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฟโœจ

We're here to help our clients with disordered eating find that deep sense of inner security. ๐Ÿค And with the right support, anyone can develop it. ๐Ÿ’ก

If you'd like to start boosting your self-respect today, try jotting down affirmations on Post-it notes ๐Ÿ“ and placing them on your mirror. Here are a few examples:

  1. I'm not a body. I'm a being. ๐Ÿ’ซ

  2. My self-worth is not defined by my shape or size. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฟโœจ

  3. I respect and nurture my body because it's the home of my soul. ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ

  4. I accept my body as it is, with kindness and love. โค๏ธ

  5. My worth is inherent and unchangeable, regardless of my physical appearance. ๐ŸŒŸ

  6. I celebrate and appreciate my body for all it does for me. ๐ŸŽ‰

  7. My body is my home. ๐Ÿ 

Read your affirmation to yourself as you start each day to let its message sink in. You are enough, just as you are. ๐ŸŒˆ
