I had a very interesting break today in a school cafeteria. A young couple was having lunch right next to me and from what I have gathered, the girl has an eating disorder. She was obviously underweight and the boyfriend was coaxing her to eat the lunch he brought for her. The girl kept on insisting that she was full and if she eats further, she might have to puke it all out. The encouraging words slowly turned to frustration then ire when the girl refuses to take in more food.
I do not know the reason why the girl refuses to eat. What came to my mind while overhearing the young couple’s conversation is “self-love”. No matter what body shape you have, remember that it is your only body. Learn to love yourself, eat right, move, get enough sleep – love yourself.
