Instead of you are beautiful, I'll leave 'you are smart', 'you are worthy', 'you are loved', 'you are valuable'

It's obviously well-intentioned, but why do I have to be beautiful? I struggle with an ED and beauty is really the least of my concerns. If I'm to function in my life and maintain good relationships with people, I need to be physically fit, mentally alert and emotionally balanced. I won't be any of those things if I let the ED take over.

*nod* I'm not an expert, but maybe ED isn't all about 'beauty', maybe there are many other pushes and pulls for the illness.

People focus on women feeling 'beautiful' but what about well? what about healthy? What about balanced?
