PostSecret: Cycle

This postcard from PostSecret seems like a beam of hope to me.

PostSecret: Cycle

It reads:

Now I believe that I am unique, sexy, worthy of love, and beautiful. Without my eating disorder.

Many of these postcards are damaged in the mail. Is there something missing from this postcard? It looks like there is room for another sentence.

The Ferris Wheel image makes me worry that bad times are coming again. If my experience with my binge-eating is any indication, whenever I feel like I’m finally in control again, I live in the constant fear that it will come back, and, of course, it DOES. My eating problems seem to cycle. It is the managing of the bad times and holding out for the good times that has kept me going.

When that Ferris Wheel goes down again, hold on tight, my friend.

PostSecret‘s beneficiary is the National Hopeline Network. It is a 24-hour hotline (1 (800) SUICIDE) for anyone who is thinking about suicide or knows someone who is considering it.

    Have you seen the new blog at Bodies in Motivation by Amber? She discusses her battle with bulimia in a very candid way, and I’m riveted.

    I look at the empty seats, that’s right where my eating disorder would have been sitting. Now I can enjoy the ride, and see the sights.

    I found this blog searching informations about eating disorders. Since in my languages i cannot find much blogs about this subject. I didn’t know there were so many solutions for this problem.

    Hi Laura,

    I read an interesting line somewhere that said: “This too shall pass”, which means that good times and bad times all come and go in life. Therefore, there is no point either sulking about the good times of past or worrying in anticipation of bad times in future. If you look at the larger picture then life indeed is like a Ferris wheel that goes up and down continuously. So there is no need to hold on to it tight my friend, simply let yourself loose and enjoy the ride. Cheers!
