how I got over depression and an Eating disorder

I want to share my story of how I got over my depression, managed my anxiety, and defeated and eating disorder all at 15 years old. About a year ago, I started high school and made the varsity cheer team which was great at first but also a huge and hard place to be in . I was struggling with other girls and comparing myself to how they look and how much more beautiful they where. I started not eating because people told me I was fat and needed to loose weight. I felt stuck like there is no way out of this horrible cycle of living. I stopped going to school and got help for my eating disorder. I went to the hospital for about five months and got help with my self esteem too. They taught me how to look at a situation from a different perspective. I also now know that I am a strong beautiful loving person and I don’t need other girls telling me that Im not. I had so much help with my self esteem. Ive really got to look into who I am as a person and see what I like to do for fun and really get to know who I am. I started a new school the following year to start fresh. There were many problems though people made fun of me for the smallest things which really was hard on me and made me very depressed and suicidal. Many people came up to Me and told me to go kill myself which is probably one of the hardest things a teen girl or anyone could hear. I thought those girls could dictate my life so I attempted suicide twice. But I got a lot of help and people showed me that nothing in this world is worth taking your life and you should love yourself and be grateful and happy to be living in such a beautiful environment. Overall, It took time and Im still working on it but doing much better and and I love life and feel great about myself. I hope this helps a least someone.
