Be perfect or die trying.

by Helpless and Hopeless.

Perfection is a never ending tunnel. I am a 14 year old girl and I was 13 when I first became anorexic. My life seemed perfect to everyone on the outside,but on the inside I was fighting a losing battle. Everyone assumed that since I was athletic,pretty,smart,and had lots of friends that my life was perfect. At home,it was the exact opposite. My parents were my personal trainers and I never got a break from training. I am a black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do,an Elite Gymnast,Softball player,Dancer,and I work out 7 days a week. They would always criticize what I ate and how I trained. This led me to cut myself also. I started cutting about 3 month after I became Anorexic. I became weak,and was always tired. This led to my parents pushing me even harder. I was on a diet which consisted of 1,300 calories a day. I was told that meat was very fattening so I refused to eat any meat at all. I became severely anemic and was admitted to the hospital. Due to my weakness from Anorexia,I lost all my athletic ability and I felt worthless. I am now almost 15,and I am still Anorexic,but It has been more that 6 months since I have cut myself. My ex boyfriend told the school counselor that I cut myself,but all I had were the scars which I hid. There were no fresh cuts so she was not allowed to tell my parents. I will be a freshman this year and everything will change-but for the best or worst,I don't know.

God is the only Pefect ! We are not
by: Keza S

I am so sorry you are having to deal with this issues because this time in you
life should not be this stressful. And then on top od that you live with the people
who are causing you the most pain.

Let me ask you, had you tried to explain this to your parents the way you feel?
If you have and they keep pushing then the BEST thing to so is pray constanly
and ask GOD to help you with this situation. Tell him every day all day your deepest
pain , hurts and feeling . I know it is hard to see a way out right now but trust me you
will if you ask GOD and believe , it may not be today or a month but you have to believe.

This situation your in now will be used to help someone else along the way if you allow it.
Find someone else to talk to, another adult maybe a teacher or the counselor again and see
if she is willing to help you. I will be praying for you and wish you the best with this.

hi I dealing with a stressful life I trained at a gym called gym tricks in Whitney Texas it is a tiny gym. The coaches are Jan and Wally I went there for level 5-6 and my parents said that I needed better training when we left gym tricks I was so sad. I loved the my friends and my coaches. So my parents took away my best friends and my favorite coach. I keep begging my Dad and Mom to train their again but they refuse. Please pray for me to come back to gym tricks! And please leave comments to me at this website.
