#LYPfamily meet: Madison R.

Hello! My name is Madison.
I wanted to share my story because I have finally hit a point in my life where I've learned to love myself. It all started when I was in 8th grade. I was bullied terribly by a group of girls whom I thought where my friends. It tore apart my self esteem. I never felt like I was good enough for anyone. When I went into high school I began struggling with major depression and anxiety. I felt so hopeless and empty. I needed control in my life so I fell into a terrible eating disorder. Anorexia not only took over my life, but it caused me to lose everything and everyone close to me. I lost so much weight and it still didn't make me feel any better about myself. I was in such a dark place mentally and physically. But these past few months I've been working on building myself up. I have realized that people around me shouldn't influence how I'm feeling about myself. I am now in full recovery from my eating disorder and I am reaching a place where I can be happier with myself. I am learning day by day to love my pieces!
