In hard times, food was my comfort

For many years I tried to eat my pain away and food was my source of comfort.

I would punish myself and put myself in isolation, hiding myself from the world.  And using food to hide my pain.


Eventually my pain started showing.  And the more it showed the more painful it became to look at myself in the mirror.

People would tell me I got fat but little did they know what I was dealing with.

They had no idea what it felt like to carry the weight of your pain, all over your body.


For many, pain and heartache turns into depression.  Which later leads to isolation.

Enprisoning yourself because you want your pain to remain hidden.


Internal suffering is dangerous.  If you don’t control it, it will spiral out of control.  And is the main reason why so many people turn to food, alcohol, drugs and sex.


Not everyone is as strong as you think.  Many suffer for years in silence.  It’s only when a note is left behind and a life is taken that people will know the extent of their pain.

I was weak for many years, until the day I took a long look at myself in the mirror.  That day I took my life back.  And in doing so I found my strength and realised my self worth again.

Stay true to yourself
