When I've told people over the years about my eating disorder, they've all had the same question - why? What caused it? Expecting me to pinpoint a time, an event, a specific moment to blame for it all. And maybe some people have those. I once had a therapist who brought my whole family together to try and get to the root of it all, he was so busy searching for the flaws in my family, that he missed the flaw in the whole world. He didn't see the magazine pages that poisoned my mind with 10 day detox diets and smiling pictures of photoshopped women, 'finally happy!' after cosmetic surgery. He wasn't looking for the problem on his TV screen, where exciting things happened to beautiful people, and beautiful always meant thin. He was blind to our entire culture teaching us that our value as human beings depends on how well we emulate the ideal, or die trying. Now I know where to place the blame. And most importantly? I know not to place it on myself. Those negative thoughts you have about yourself? You didn't create them, you were taught them. We live in a world that profits from our self hatred, and that is not our fault. We didn't ask for this, and we don't deserve it. Believe me, sweet girl, none of this was ever your fault. 💜💙💚🌈🌞 "I can say finally, for myself at least: at thirteen, to starve half to death? Not guilty. Not that child. There is certainly a charge of guilt to be made, long overdue. But it doesn't belong to me. It belongs somewhere, and to something, else." - Naomi Wolf

Die Amerikanerin Megan Jayne Crabbe stand schon an der Schwelle des Todes: Magersucht! Als Jugendliche wog sie zeitweise unter 30 Kilo, lag im Krankenhaus und wurde künstlich ernährt. Doch heute trägt Megan Kleidergröße 42, fühlt sich pudelwohl - und sendet damit eine wichtige Botschaft an alle Frauen aus!

Schon seit Kindertagen hatte sich Megan in ihrem Körper nicht wohlgefühlt, stets zu wenig gegessen und sich runtergehungert. Ihre Krankheit hatte lebensbedrohliche Ausmaße angenommen, als es eines Tages Klick machte: Die Sorgen ihres Vaters brachten Megan zum Umdenken - und ein Instagram-Kanal, der glückliche Plus-Size-Frauen zeigt.

"Wenn die das können, kann ich das auch", dachte sich die heute 22-Jährige - und begann, ohne Zwänge zu essen. Heute trägt sie Kleidergröße 42 und fühlt sich pudelwohl in ihrem Körper. Auf ihrem Instagram-Profil zeigt sie sich stolz - gerne auch im Bikini. Auf die Waage steigt Megan schon lange nicht mehr. Und ihre Botschaft an alle Frauen lautet: Fühlt euch wohl in eurem Körper - ihr müsst euch nur dazu entschließen!

To anyone who comments on my pictures saying 'body goals' or 'I'd kill for that body'. You are breaking my heart. Because that is the opposite of what I want you to feel when you look at my profile. I'm not trying to turn my body type into the new 'ideal', I'm trying to show you that there is no ideal. That we all have the power to break free from the beauty standards that have kept us in mental chains for so long. That's why I celebrate my cellulite and bask in the glory of my belly rolls. To show you that it's possible for you to love YOUR body, no matter how far it deviates from the current idea of perfection. So please, use the energy you spend wishing for other people's bodies, on learning how to love your own. It is so worthy of your love, exactly the way it is. 💜💙💚🌈🌞

One day you'll see. The moments of your life that you've missed. The memories that were made to light up your mind with smiles in vivid colour. But instead, they are dull. They were dulled. By a mind that could never truly live in that moment, too consumed by the ever present mirror forcing your reflection to the forefront of your thoughts. You cannot truly live with that mirror, looming over all that you do, and all that you are. One day you'll see, that it was inside you all along - the power to smash the mirror into pieces too small to ever pierce through your self esteem again. One day you'll see, that you could have lived unburdened by lies about your worth residing in your reflection. That you could have laughed with your whole body shaking. That you could have devoured every bite without shame. That you could have lived every moment, for yourself. One day, you will see. And I can't think of a better day than the one you're living right now. 💜💙💚🌈🌞
