TheIdeaProject Healthy Story was created in order to provide support for people on their path towards better physical and psychological health, self-love, love towards their bodies and their lives. Since this goal is quite ambitious, Healthy Story includes many aspects necessary for a happy and gratifying life – body, emotions, thoughts, spirituality, sexuality, relationships, parenthood and psychotherapy.

The original idea of Healthy Story was born in the fall of 2012. Back then my intention was to write a book: “The healthy story of one light girl”, inspired by the constant struggle of many women to reach certain “perfect” weight, torturing themselves through all kinds of diets and feeling constant hatred towards their own bodies. The book hasn’t been published yet (everything comes on its own time), but meanwhile in the fall of 2013 the website Zdrava Istoria was born (the Bulgarian version of Healthy Story), followed by Healthy Story in English in the spring of 2014.

The primary focus of the project was on healthy weight loss and on how to start loving our bodies, this is why older articles on the website are mostly from the sphere of healthy nutrition, healthy weight loss and love towards one’s body. This aspect of the project still exists and I still believe it is extremely important, because our body will be part of us throughout our whole journey on planet Earth, so it is really important to have a good relationship with it.

Later the focus expanded and we started including more material about womanhood. Because if a woman doesn’t accept her femininity and she is constantly fighting with it, then there is no way to accept and love her female body.

Womanhood is connected to sexuality – if we are not psychologically mature enough for our sexuality, then we can’t really talk about womanhood, since in this case there is no woman, but only a child in adult’s body. And no matter how much she tells herself that she loves her womanhood and that it is wonderful to be a woman, no matter how much effort she puts into looking like a woman on the outside, in reality she feels like a 5-year-old child on the inside. When sexuality is unhealthy, one finds it difficult to have a positive attitude towards oneself, as well as to establish healthy relationships with the opposite sex, because a woman (or a man), who has the psychological age of a 5-year-old child is not looking for a partner, but for a Dad (or a Mom). And this in turn leads to unhealthy relationships, based on mutual dependency, in which the partners are not happy with each other, but at the same time can’t walk away, or the person is so scared of committing to one partner, that they simply jump from relationship to another.

Psychology and psychotherapy are important for one’s health and self-awareness. Through psychology one can explore himself and the world around them, becoming more aware of their thoughts, emotions and behavior and growing up as a person. But each of us has their limit of awareness, or the so called blind spot, beyond which, it is difficult for a person to go on his own. Every person has their own defense mechanisms, which prevent them from seeing specific patterns of theirs or they notice them and then forget about them straight away. This way the defense mechanisms preserve the sanity of the mind, because some matters can be too painful for a person to face on their own. At the same time, however, by not being aware of those patterns, we simply continue repeating them, and since they are ineffective, we tend to get stuck in specific areas of our lives. So then we wonder why we always fail miserably when it comes to love, why we have financial problems or something else in our life doesn’t quite work properly. And here is where psychotherapy comes to the rescue – the psychotherapist as a mirror reflects those hidden ineffective mechanisms back to the person and assists them in becoming aware of and changing those patterns, so that the person can build the life they really want.

However, even if we have healthy sexuality, even if we love our bodies and have a wonderful partnership, as long as we hold only onto the material aspect of life, our soul starts crying and this sorrow gets manifested in our lives in the shape of sense of meaninglessness, feeling lost, endless sadness. We are not only Earthly beings, all of us have spiritual sparkle as well, that is why spirituality is an important aspect of a fulfilled life and we need to take care of it.

Every person deserves to be happy, to have abundant self-love and people who love them truly, as well as every person deserves to walk proudly on his own unique path on Earth. I feel that Healthy Story is my contribution to the world and even the fact alone, that from an idea it turned into reality and now it serves its purpose, brings me tremendous joy. Of course, not everything goes smoothly – there are some tough moments as well and sometimes I even ask myself “Why?” and “Is there meaning in doing this?”, but those tough moments are part of the real life of a human being – there will always be tests and challenges, as well as beautiful moments and joy.

And here is the moment to thank all of you, all who took the time to provide me with feedback and support, who wrote to me, that some articles were useful for them and made them open their eyes to something important, that they feel good after visiting the website, that they like the videos and they are of great interest to them, that they would like to read more articles on specific topics or that a certain article is total nonsense and it is not true at all (yes, the fact that someone has taken the time to write, that they don’t agree with something, tells me, that the article was useful for them, because it has obviously touched something important to them, furthermore such comments help me grow personally or at least check what is my reaction to criticism). I am also grateful to people who took the time to send me some suggestions and advice – it is always useful to hear another opinion.

Thank you!
