We were playing some games at this cafe at soul survivor a few evenings ago and they have tablecloths that you’re allowed to draw on. I saw this and it absolutely broke my heart and also gave me so much hope.

OMG Lara I didn't know about soul survivor but I just googled it and wow it sounds AMAZING it's like everything I could dream of. The problem is I live in Massachusetts so if I came it would be with like only one friend. Are people welcoming if you're not from uk? And do you need to have a big group to go with to have a good time? Thank you lovely :)

It is actually absolutely amazing I feel so lucky that I’ve been able to come for 3 years in a row. They absolutely do welcome people from every part of the world, in fact they always have something for foreigners, I think it’s usually a breakfast event. Usually people do come with their church groups but I’m fairly sure you can come with just a few people. I would definitely recommend coming at some point in your life :) ♥

Also last night in worship we were talking about addiction and body image and I went down for someone to pray for me because I felt I needed to go. There were two teenage girls praying for me and they were praying and their words touched me so much. I was crying so much so loudly because god was telling me to and it felt like it was right and I came back with mascara streaks and was cradled by g-ma Liz.
What’s more is that I was talking to them after and even though they didn’t know what I was personally going through they were so understanding. Also one of the girls was saying how if id seen her 2 years ago then I wouldn’t have seen the same happy girl. She was struggling with restriction and purging and hurting herself, but she is so haply now and it’s inspiring.

I’m so nervous about getting my results, especially like this. I’m around a load of good Christian friends but I’m not getting them myself, my mum has to call me before worship and I don’t want to loose it in worship when I find out I’ve done badly.

this is regarding your post about tove lo: shes fucking puking because she ate twinkies and she's hungover.. it's got nothing to do with eating disorders lmao stop pls

I’m really sorry but my interpretation was just that: an interpretation, therefore it’s okay if you don’t agree with me. Also the song is still about other unhealthy coping mechanisms so I still don’t view it as a good song. Lastly, I posted about that months ago, it’s no longer on my mind so I think you’re the one who should try to calm down about this…
