I'm sure many of you follow someone on social media who is a great inspiration for you. Whoever they are, often they have no clue how they changed your life or what they mean for you.
That's why I want to make this post a short letter to @megsy_recovery, although she'll probably never read it 😁
Firstly I want to say Congratulations on your wedding! You & Bren are gorgeous and I hope you'll live happily together forever ❤️❤️
I've been just a silent follower (with my personal account) for half a year already and I thought it was time to finally write something (I'm always scared when it comes to approaching people I admire 🙈) 😄
I just wanted to tell you that you saved my life. Literally. I was on my way to hell, stuck deep in anorexia, wanting it to end and seeing no sense of living. I couldn't find a motivation to start recovery, I couldn't understand what the hell I'd get from gaining weight & stopping the restrictions. And then I accidentally found your Instagram (and then YouTube) account. I fell in love with your personality, with your strength, determination, passion, will to challenge all your fears again & again. You were talking about your experiences and I could finally see I'm not alone in this because I could relate to almost everything you said. I was amazed by your progress and realized you're aiming for the life I've always wanted. You gave me hope. You gave me reason. And I decided to start recovery. You know recovery isn't linear or easy and I've slipped many times but your vids kept reminding me why I decided to change my life ❤️ I cried and laughed with you 😄 as you shared both your ups & downs and you showed me there was always a light at the end of the tunnel, you gave me a new point of view. I can't even express how much you helped me (as it would be weird and very long 😅) but at least I want to say a huge huge huge THANK YOU ❤️❤️ You're an amazing, caring, brave girl and I'm SO happy for you gaining your life back and becoming the 'Meg-you' again ❤ I'm now in much better place than I was a couple of months ago but you're still a role model for me ❤️
I hope this all doesn't sound too creepy or something 😁😉
Love Gwen xx
