It’s been a while since I became so absorbed when listening to a book that I went into some kind of trance but that’s exactly what happened this morning.
I’m listening to Mad Girl by Bryony Gordon and there are some parts that I could’ve written myself.
This particular paragraph resonated with me; I was transported back a time when I was so, so low, being sucked dry by my very own parasite. I remember saying ‘you’re killing my self-esteem’ and being told ‘surely I’m increasing it?’ as I cried, shoved some more food in and gulped some more wine ..
I don’t dwell on those times very often these days and it was a bit of a shock to go back there this morning. It made me realise how strong I’ve become, how my self-esteem has rocketed and how I will never let anyone feast on me again ❤️
