Kind stranger writes heart-warming letter to anorexia sufferer
A woman who is recovering from anorexia was handed a letter by a complete stranger on a train that contained kind words of love and support.
The woman, who has asked for her name to be changed to Rose for the publication of this story, was travelling to a clinic as an outpatient for treatment.
Rose was approached by a complete stranger who gave her a note before slipping away.
It contained words of encouragement and support for Rose.
The mystery writer said: “Everyone goes through troubles in life, some more serious than other. I can’t help but notice yours.”
She then went on to write: “In case you haven’t got your daily dose of ‘YOU CAN DO THIS’ – this letter is it!”
The heartwarming message also told Rose: “NEVER GIVE UP. There is always someone out there who loves you and cares.”
Rose said she was deeply moved by the kind gesture from a complete stranger. She has released the letter during Eating Disorder Awareness Week in the UK.
