Wow, this is really well made! Great job on this! The bully’s appearance is surprisingly very accurate lol. I’m impressed by how well this all came together.
Sarah, 24
Seeing my story on the web was a mix of excitement and disbelief. What I wrote was still fresh in my mind, so recognizing my own words was an experience in itself. Obviously, not EVERYTHING was there since I wrote Bored Panda a full-on thesis, but the essentials were there and it made me very happy. I also loved reading the comments from people recovering from eating disorders and people saying that we are beautiful the way we are even if we are imperfect. I also showed the clip to my boyfriend! It did help him to understand a part of what I went through.
