Sometimes we don't see ourselves the way we really are, instead, we see ourselves the way we think others do, or we listen to someone's mean words about us and we start to believe them. Jamie did that. She started to believe what a mean girl said about her, started to believe she was fat, and she couldn't stop it. She lost weight, too much weight, and it made her sick. She had an eating disorder, and part of her knew it, but she couldn't fix herself. She needed help, but wouldn't go get it.
Finally, when her body gave up, she saw the truth - that she was beautiful in the body she was given, and that what we see in the mirror can never be the thing that others may call us.

I Don't Get Why People Beleive What Bullies say Don't Let Them Change You or Your Personality Be You And Stay You! You're Way More Happy When You're You , and You Get Real Friends When You're You!
And You're Sooo BEAUTIFUL When You're You. So Just Be You.
It's sad that people get bullied for being fat and skinny, so it's better to be average weight because nobody can bully you for being fat/skinny because you'd know it's not true. Besides it's fine to be overweighed or below average, because you are all perfect the way you are
Here's a qoute from a friend.
"I don't get people. People can make fun of you for being skinny. And also make fun of you for being to fat. I don't get it, no one is perfect! And the people who say things are showing there own imperfections.
ugh why they believe about those stupid bullies it just make it even more worse and when they call them fat to the person it just makes them
DIE cuz when u get skinny u will DIE the bullies r trying to kill u so there devils
When I was 11 I went anorexic for 2 months because I was 124 pounds, to me it was the fattest weight in the world. I actually didn’t look fat AT ALL, because since I was 5’5” I was kinda stretched out (yes I was very tall). Eventually I told myself to stop since I somehow wasn’t losing weight... i really wish I never did it. To everyone out there, I know it’s hard to listen to people saying “you’re beautiful”. But remember, if you exercise and have a balanced diet you won’t continue gaining tons of weight. Please stay strong even if you’re getting bullied. Report it to ANYONE. Please, I can’t stress this enough. I dealt with lots of depression because my weight and my mom, then became suicidal. I overcame it by staying hopeful, SO PLEASE. There’s always 1 person you’ll effect if you leave. Even if you don’t believe it, it’s true. You can possibly pass your thoughts to someone else.
Thanks for reading, stay strong.
People call me creepy half the time but they come to me about if their crushes are talking about them cause I listen in on everyone’s conversations mostly because hey yell it right next to me and I usually say they aren’t just to get some pay back
My best friend Chloe, is struggling with anorexia, she can barely eat anything without throwing up, I always advise her to add small portions to her food to get her used to it, and while im not sure if she is listening too that, im very concerned for her
Im not trying to discredit her but its literally not possible to lose 10 pounds a week at that weight, and saying that she lost weight so quickly might encourage people to starve themselves. I'm 160 pounds rn and I lose 5-6 pounds max a week eating nothing.
This happened to me too when I was in hightschool my teacher called me so fat in front of my friends in class. That was so embarrassing, I was so stressed because of her and started to eat only an apple for a day. I avoided carbs and fat 😢.
