Good drawing!

I can actually relate to this one in many ways. Around the age of 10 or 11, I was often being told how skinny I was. I loved the compliments and often gave ones back.

I liked being told I was thin.

I wanted to be thinner than everyone else.

There were actually numerous 3rd and 4th graders who weighed more than be and they were at a normal weight.

A few months later, I ate less and less everyday. It was normal for me not to eat much, but this was way less than normal.

Eventually I developed mild Anorexia.

Today, Im trying hard to recover.

It looks like the video: Når Spejlet Lyver. Did you get the scene from there? But I must say you did a really good job drawing this. :-).
