”Hello, I’m Roosa and 27 years old. Starting at Age 17, I struggled for about 5 years with anorexia that included both compulsive exercising as well as depression. Only now have I understood how up until then my perfectionism and achievement oriented attitude had been the driving forces of my life. I had always felt like I wasn’t good enough if it wasn’t for my external achievements and recognition. I felt I was not enough simply as myself. Letting go of this mental mindset has been by far the best thing that’s happened to me.
The cornerstones of my recovery were the open and honest conversations with both professionals as well as my family and friends. Admitting, confronting and finally accepting even my most sensitive and sometimes shameful feelings and fears were crucial in terms of my path to recovery. I have thankfully realized that I am enough and whole without any external achievements or self-inflicted demands to be or look a certain way.”
