I broke up with my boyfriend this morning out of nowhere because I woke up hating how my body looked like. Ive had an eating disorder for multiple years now and my body issues get in the way of almost every relationship I'm in. I feel better now that he doesn't have to see my body everyday anymore and potentially like me less for it. But at the same time my heart hurts thinking about how much im going to miss him. I feel all over the place right now, and going through a breakup during quarantine is so much harder. Definitely in need of some support and company but I can't see anyone. Any tips on what to do? .. feeling lost

Try art projects. Sry about your break up. I always look for imperfections when really I should be looking for perfections. But it's always me at my best that makes me feel the best. Sounds like you need some healing time in your overall recovery. Take care

I hope you'll reconsider your break up. Thats a painful thing to do to someone because you're feeling bad about yourself today. He could have been your support in this time. I think you should try more conversation and less rash decisions.

Thanks, I'll work on that. Its more the fact that I realized that I'm not ready to be in a relationship at the moment considering how I was feeling about myself. I feel like I still need to build the self love I need to trust and love someone else.
