Anorexia, problems, that bother us and support

Sometimes I just like hunting on Internet for some stuff, and I found some interesting videos today, that I can't skip blogging about.
Girls who suffer from anorexia nervoza, bulimia nervoza, pain and loss, tell their stories on Internet and it really touches my heart. Of course there are always people who judge, but obviously those messages are more like calls for support and care.
According to Wikipedia, anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by excessive food restriction and irrational fear of gaining weight, and a distorted body self-perception. It typically involves excessive weight loss.
Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by binge eating and purging, or consuming a large amount of food in a short amount of time, followed by an attempt to rid oneself of the food consumed (purging), typically by vomiting, taking a laxative or diuretic and/or excessive exercise, and commonly accompanied with fasting over an extended period of time.

Couple days ago I also found videos with the stories of teenagers who cut themselves. 
Why is it happening? Social media promotes these image of a "perfect" person, that everyone wants to be like in order to sell a product or promote some show, but not so many people actually care what it leads to. 
People judge and critisize each other, parents abuse their children and so on and on and on. 
Many times in life these problems kind of bother us but we try to put emotions aside and just live our lives in order to survive. Indeed, if we let it all in and start focusing on it, we put ourselves into risk of being driven crazy. 
From the other side we can't just close our eyes every time we don't like something. We should actually face the fact that the problem exists and realize that at least something little can be done about it. 
Again, Internet can help do this little thing: let's support each other, let's care for each other and let's love each other. Little message, comment or just sending a hug can make a difference. Don't judge people for their past, don't judge them by their looks, try to see what's hidden behind this and try to help. 
All these people need some understanding, most of them are still kids, but look for support here on Internet. Instead of pushing them into the abysm they are trying to come out of, reach out your hand!
Love,
Anya
p.s. I made my own story video to share with you why I am here blogging and making videos
