Private School Pressures

May 8, 2012

“I go to a private school that is very focused on appearances. A few months ago I returned from treatment for my eating disorder. I learned a lot of great things in treatment, but when I got home I was thrown in to the same old pressures. One of the hardest things is that I’m really trying to accept my body now, but it’s hard to do that when I get to school and I can totally feel the other girls checking out what I’m wearing and how I look. How can I face this scrutiny without falling back into old patterns?”
