I want to be skinny and light and empty, but I want to grow taller and be able to focus and be normal. I am lost



I like your username. It's okay to be lost. It's okay to know exactly what you want, but want two contradicting things. It's okay to not know what you're doing, or why.

Do you really want to be skinny and light and empty, or is that your ED talking? What do you want to be like in your future? How would being skinny and empty fit in that future?

Ask yourself questions, really ask. Let your most hopeful self respond, or even your future self. It sounds flaky and pointless, but it may help you find what you really want.

Best of luck, I believe in you.
