The Shy Cry

Have you ever felt so alone, so different from everyone else, the kind of unique that is not very good? This may be a shyness you would not think would involve eating disorders, but it does. Have you ever considered what the shy and unforeseen girls do every night they are at home. More than likely they sit in their rooms, crying, and wondering why they are so different. And if you know this is happening, you cannot help but bring up the fact that there is also a chance of thew “fitting in” routine happening. The shy girls are usually the ones that crave to be like the popular, and skinny girls who everyone likes and wants to be around. This is just the start of what could be come the eating disorder known as anorexia. It is not uncommon for girls to strive to feel more like others by using this eating disorder to look more like the popular girls.
