Starving In Suburbia

I wanted to talk about a serious problem in the teen community lately and that thing is Anorexia. And what got me thinking about this was a movie I recently watched called Starving In Suburbia.

This movie is about a girl and her friend shows her this website supporting anorexia. She starts chatting with the people and starts to talk to this admin of the site and encourages her to stop eating. Soon someone on the website tells her not to talk to her but she doesn't listen. Later on, her brother has a major heart attack in a wrestling match  then we find out that her brother was the one telling her not to talk to the admin and that he is anorexic. Her brother dies and she decides to change her life in honor of her brother.

ANA aka Anorexia affects dozens of youth everywhere and it is a big issue in today's society. Dozens of girls and even guys (but, mostly girls) are flooded with pictures like this...

Nobody should have to look at these types of photos and fell disgusted with themselves. 

It just makes me angry how people judge other people because of what they look like... You have no idea what that person is going through and what their life situation is. Just to put this out there all girls are beautiful no matter what they look like. 

No matter who you are or the size you are everyone is beautiful just the way you are. Nobody is perfect but everybody is who they are no matter what.

  1. I agree with what you've expressed in this post. It is a pity that such beautiful young women don't realize how wonderful and gorgeous their bodies are! Inner beauty is infinitely more valuable than external beauty, after all.
