‘I had an extreme obsession with my body. I made it a measure of my own value.’
‘I tried to dominate it, which I did, and I changed it multiple times over. But it never lasted and ultimately it didn’t bring me anything but temporary happiness.
‘Does being thin resolve anything? No. The irony is that when I abandoned that desire to dominate my body, it actually became the body that I’d always wanted.
‘But it only happened when I stopped trying to control it. At the end of the day, this kind of obsession is pointless and meaningless.’
