I am a feminist and I am a mother. I believe in equity for people of all genders and raising my sons to value kindness and respect for all people. I believe in a woman’s right to choose how they want to live their life without the influence of the patriarchy. The patriarchy is where men hold the power and are the main decision makers and women’s voices are mostly silenced. We live in a patriarchal society. It is slowly getting more equal, but there are still SO many expectations put on people identifying as women.

Recovering from my eating disorder and self-injury was the hardest thing I have ever done.
I look back on my 15-year struggle with anorexia and bulimia and I barely recognize that person today. She was so frail, hopeless, overwhelmed, and desperate.
Overcoming my eating disorder, started with learning how to treat myself with compassion.
I hated myself. I blamed myself for the OCD, for the rape, and so much more. I could not find a way to treat my present self with compassion.
Diet culture is rooted in the patriarchy. Diet culture survives off of keeping women contained, small, quiet, and unheard.
