Robyn Cruze Notable Quotes

“Do not pity me. Yes, I struggled, but I am so strong. I have been in recovery for 18 years, and I am empowered by this process.”
                                                – Robyn Cruze

“Just because I have recovered from an eating disorder doesn’t mean that when everything society is spouting about body and food is not positive, I’m not affected by it. It just means I will not be dictated by it. My food choices and my behavior will not be dictated by it.”
                                                – Robyn Cruze
