    Whoah, I can’t believe she referenced that quote by Annie Dillard–that was my yearbook quote! Coincidentally, my senior year of high school was when I was well into my eating disorder. In fact, I remember choosing that quote to go under my yearbook photo and thinking about it in terms of wanting to escape my eating disorder. I knew I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life as I had been spending all those days–counting calories, hating my body, feeling miserable.

    I have run into so many sites about self worth and I believe these are great outlets for others who are suffering silently to come and find encouragement that they are not alone. I too have/had suffered with major self worth issues and I wrote about it in my true life story. It would be such an honor if we could some how support one another with our stories so we can reach others who are looking for inspiration and answers.
    The book I wrote deals a ton with spirituality and how I have had to overcome a lot of things I was in denial about especially when it came to men, money, food addictions and just plain not feeling good enough.
    May I please send you a copy of this eBook for you to see if this is something you may want to help teach others with? There is a great story in there about when Patrick Swayze was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer I was also diagnosed with three masses in my pancreas. My life was blessed because I am still here today, but there was a big reason why I was so sick in the first place and I show people this and how it is the true reason we do get so physically sick in our lives.

    I wish you much happiness!

    God bless,

    Women’s books and magazines are so masochistic. My personal pet peeve is men who tell women how to be better women. It’s nice to see a woman with her heard on straight giving good advice.
