i’ve seen this picture on tumblr before and it had the caption ‘reblog if you know what this means’ or something and I can’t find the original post so sorry for reposting but i just really want to say something about this okay.
A lot of people know that it represents an eating disorder but it goes a lot further than that. The apple in the mirror is full of life and healthy,apples and sweet and delicious and thats what we see inside the mirror,and the one looking in to the mirror which is the one that has been eaten represents eating disorders in the way that it’s been eaten away and people who have body issues are eaten away by society. the picture shows how people with eating disorders will never truly see themselves as thin but it’s more than that. It also shows how eating disorders and society take away everything good about you and leave you with the bare core of your being,they take away all that is good and lovely and sweet and delicious,
ok i’m sorry i just had to get this out because i’ve been thinking about this picture for a really long time and it’s a really powerful picture i’m sorry okay yes.
