Teenage thoughts & body issues!

I've been working with this young girl.  She has major issues with food.  She almost doesn't think she has an eating disorder because she isn't super skinny.  But, she really does.  She can't eat around people, she can hardly eat at all during the day because her body is now use to starvation mode and then she finally starves so long that she binges.  Then, she feels so horrible about herself.    She gets major anxiety when she knows she is going to have to eat in front of people.  She can't do it, she gets so scared and sick.  All these issues stems from her childhood and the things her family says to her.  She thinks starvation mode is the way she can get the body she wants.  But, little does she realize it is the opposite way to do it.  I try to motivate her and help her.  I get many texts through out the day of her struggles.  She should be getting into counseling soon which I am so happy about and I hope it helps her a lot.

It is so sad the way we are sometimes as women, the way we see ourselves, the way we compare ourselves to others, the way we feel not good enough or pretty enough.

This makes me nervous as a mom of girls myself.  How any little thing can change them and make them feel not good about themselves.  I hope I can know what to say, know what to do, know how to give them confidence, confidence to believe in themselves and know they are beautiful no matter what the world says or thinks.
This is what every girl needs to believe

this is what every parent needs to realize
