But what about those with high self-esteem? I, personally, am quite happy with myself. I feel that I am an extremely intelligent, articulate, well liked person. I don't find myself unattractive, fat, or in need of friends. I don't want to be 'labeled' or fit into some category. But I continue to suffer from an eating disorder. Why? Why do I feel the need to starve myself? Maybe because I feel that I am good enough to go without food. Upon thinking this I realized that it is completely true. I genuinely feel 'too good' for food and fat.
I just thought this was a funny little realization, and was wondering others viewpoints on self-esteem relating to eating disorders.
