Posted on July 02, 2018As we approach the 4th of July, it's hard not to think about independence and freedom. These concepts are clearly connected to the holiday, but they also feel incredibly relevant to the process of recovery. When someone is struggling with an eating disorder, it can take away so much of that person's freedom. Instead, there is a sense of being trapped or kept prisoner to this other part of you that's in control. Throughout the recovery process, individuals will slowly begin to recognize their separation and sense of independence from the controlling force that was their eating disorder. The liberation that's felt as a result is energizing and deserving of celebration — just as we celebrate our independence on the 4th of July!
