717 Love Yourself Authentically with Lindsey Stirling
YOUR NEED FOR CONTROL CAN HURT YOU INSTEAD OF HELP YOU.
A mental disorder is like an unhealthy relationship.
You have to love yourself enough to know that you deserve better.
Otherwise, you’re depriving yourself of living a full, abundant life.
But it’s not easy.
Admitting that you or someone you know is struggling with an eating or mental disorder is scary.
That’s why, for this Five Minute Friday, I brought back a powerful conversation I had with Lindsey Stirling where she shared her journey to overcome her eating disorder.
Linsey Stirling is an American violinist, dancer, performance artist, and composer. She presents choreographed violin performances, both live and in music videos found on her YouTube channel, which has over 11 million subscribers.
Lindsey’s memoir The Only Pirate At The Party is a New York Times bestseller. She has been named in Forbes magazine's 30 Under 30 In Music: The Class Of 2015 and was a quarter-finalist in America’s Got Talent Season 5.
Lindsey says that she combatted her disordered thinking with logic and “coached” her mom on the best ways to communicate with her.
If you or someone you know is struggling with a mental disorder, help is available.
