At 13 girls are very aware of their bodies and how others perceive them

At 13 I was told by my boyfriend that I was “getting chunky”

I weighed 130 lbs at 5’6

Long story short – his words ate at me and I because dangerously anorexic and hospitalized

People don’t understand the way all teenagers are wired

These are the times to lift them up – not tear them down

Bless you for being a mom who stands behind her daughter

She may need some extra love and praise to repair that kind of. Damage

This hurts my heart ❤️😢
