National Eating Disorders Awareness Week Post: Brett Debney, MS, EdS, LPC, NCC

For National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, I will be highlighting different blog posts or web pages. Today’s post comes from M. Brett Debney, MS, EdS, LPC, NCC. Here is my favorite excerpt from it:

“Are we told messages such as, “you are beautiful, no matter what.” Or, on the other hand, are we told messages such as “that’s how fat people think,” or “fat is ugly”?

We need to believe the message of “You are beautiful.” Period. “You are beautiful.” Not pretty, not attractive, not gorgeous, not sexy. Just … Beautiful. Distorted ideals of beauty are epidemic in our world. And for some, these distortions reach monumental levels that risk their happiness, their sanity, and their very lives.”
