Eating disorders are unique to the individual, but one common occurrence is that your eating disorder lies to you. If we think of an eating disorder as a little devil on your shoulder, it whispers in your ear to keep you trapped in your disease.
Often, an attitude of gratitude is the exact opposite of the thought processes surrounding your eating disorder. While your eating disorder thoughts are mostly negative, an attitude of gratitude is widely positive. An attitude of gratitude can be a little angel on your other shoulder. It’s a great principle to adopt if you want to recover.
