⏳ 2018 vs 2021 ⏳
"I look at the photo on the left and I see another Francesca.
And I'm not talking about the physical difference. That's obvious and any superficial observer stops at that.
I'm talking about mentally, my inner self, the part you have to live with 24 hours a day, that you can't get a break from, or a vacation, because it haunts you, because it's always ready to knock you down, belittle you, and demoralize you.
I was sick, I was sucked into a deep, black vortex. I was obsessed. I wasn't clear-headed. I was controlled by numbers, or better said, I controlled them, counting the hours that passed without eating. The more my weight went down, the more I wanted to lose weight.
This is why I always say that you have to lose control first in order to find it. Because I decided to lose control and let myself go, I hit rock bottom and slowly, day after day, I picked myself up. It hasn't always been easy, I'd dare to say it hasn't ever been, but I never threw in the towel, I was relentless. I wanted to be free. From my obsessions, fears, and weaknesses. And in order to free oneself you have to use all of your energy and put it towards one single goal.
That's why I say to you all that if you want to overcome a problem, if you decide to achieve a goal, you have to make a precise and rigorous choice. Don't neglect your inner issues. Don't neglect yourselves. You're your only priority. And then, only after, comes everything else.
Today, I'm happy. Incredibly free and happy! And if I could do it, with all of my complex dramas and issues, then anyone can do it - trust me." 💖
