There was a major realization moment, which was the time I uncontrollably ate a dessert, which is shown by the photo. That moment made me realized my unhealthy relationship with food, which has been affecting my mental and physical health for a long time even before the exchange journey. For me, the growth moment was when I started to face and confront my weaknesses honestly, stopped deceiving myself and admitted that I had a problem with food, and finally sought for help.
The biggest transformation is I was finally willing to open up and seek help. As I was by myself during exchange journey, it would be easy for me to keep my problem by myself without telling anyone. However, having more individual time actually allows me to reflect and understand myself more and this has given me the courage to seek help.
