Ines explains that for her it is important to differentiate yourself with your eating disorder and understand you do not have to be perfect each day – you have have to be you and just do your best.
‘It is always easier to share something in front of the monitor just because the live contact is missing. There, you can always escape from yourself, to write whatever you want and you don’t have to respond to the reaction of the others. You can always not read the comments, to delete the posts, while when there is actual contact you have to bear the consequences of the result you words and actions will have and what you have done – whether someone will approve or disapprove you.’
‘You do not put #EatingDisorderRecovery etc and even your name on Instagram is not connected with the Eating Disorder. In some way the Eating Disorder keeps living within those people and to be a part of their life, because they constantly associate themselves with it.’
‘We should know that we only see the best moments of the others but we perceive ourselves with our worst moments. We should know the others have absolutely the same moments and it is import to approach social media with awareness. Of course, reducing your online presence helps. I mean not feeling like to have to upload everything you do and to look for other’s approval and recognition. Just to know that you can have moments just for yourself, which others will approve or not.’
‘In my opinion, everything depends on the fact that most people have the wrong idea that they have to be ideal and perfect at everything they do. That’s where the problem comes from … most people with an Eating Disorder are perfectionists and over ambitious.’
