I am currently in the beautiful Queenstown on vacation with the family 🙂 But although I am having the time of my life- eating issues is something that always comes up and wants to ruin things. Now, whilst I may have it pretty much under control and dealing with it well- I still have moments where I struggle. And being away from my number 1 support system- my amazing bf has made me realise how important having support it.
Support can come in the forms of your partner, friends, family, other relationships, as well as professional support. Whatever support you choose; it is important that you use it. Although I have the support of my family over here no one quite understands what I’ve been through and how to help me like my bf. But not having the support readily available- apart from our skype dates (which is not enough) is really a test for me as a person. Whilst it’s hard I guess it really pushes me to confront my issues and work through it on my own.
Because whilst support is essential and necessary, as individuals we must be ready to deal with it as individuals. So basically, this post is just a combination of sad feelings and realisations of the importance of support but also the importance of being a strong individual and learning to deal with your problems on your own also.
