Hi everyone! I have a best friend with a girl that has an eating disorder. I think she is so beautiful and I want to help her think so too. I was thinking about doing something cute with a mirror and tell her why she is beautiful but idk what to do! Any ideas?

Eating Disorders aren't entirely about food, or body image, but also about a need to control something. Its a psychological issue, not a physical one. I don't know if a mirror would necessarily be harmful, but maybe a journal would be nice? A pretty, blinged up book, maybe even a fancy matching pen? Something she can work out her thoughts in.
Just a thought.

If she is in treatment a good companion for that would be journaling, like World.of.hoard.craf t said, maybe you could introduce her to art journaling? I think the mirror is a good idea too, but if she is just starting therapy she might not be ready to confront her reflection yet

How about a little mirror on the front of the journal?
