CW: Eating Disorders
My old roommate Emily used to fan herself with her exam books to “osmosis the information into her head”.
When I was told to come up with some positive statements and affirmations for myself, I wasn’t sure quite where to write them. I needed somewhere where they could be instantly available, constantly comforting, a friendly reminder that things were somehow, at some point, going to be okay. So where better than a scrunchie to “osmosis” into my head?
I thought I’d share with you 7 of my favourite scrunchie affirmations:
No matter what you ate yesterday, you still have to eat today.
I am a lightly dusted croissant
Believe in you
I am safe. That is enough.
I am a majestic camel.
I do not need to earn the right to eat.
I am doing the right thing.
Some of those are self explanatory, some of those are near unexplainable, but whatever helps you through the day is perfectly okay and perfectly valid.
These are my top 7 affirmations, what are yours?
