Libero Network started back in April 2010 with a picture of our Founder Lauren Bersaglio blowing bubbles (remember? comment below!) and a focus on eating disorders and body positivity. After that, we grew into a flower, and then our first logo was launched and we expanded our community to encompass a variety of mental health topics.
Nothing about our values or vision as an organization is changing; however, our look is going to change. We don’t want to reveal too much, but just know we have been and continue to be working hard behind-the-scenes at something fresh, new, and exciting!
In addition to our rebranding (new logo, new colours), we will also be launching a new website! Don’t worry, though, all of our archived content will transfer over to our new site–think of it more as a website redesign than a rebuild.
Until our launch, we will no longer be publishing new content; however, our website will remain live.
We will be launching in June and are so excited for the chapter that lies ahead!

We’ve heard it before: “Exterior focus is not God-centered.”

For many of us who struggled with self-harm, our urges and behaviors are often accompanied by intense emotions seeming to incapacitate all of our abilities to cope with what we are experiencing.
During this kind of emotional turmoil, it can be difficult to distract ourselves or use any other coping mechanism. Sometimes, these initial coping mechanisms can be ineffective in the moment while other times we may be too overwhelmed to think of what to do. Read More
We hear a lot about intuitive eating in the context of eating disorder recovery. We should listen to our bodies because they know best.
We cannot trust our minds, so surely we can trust our bodies. But how do you listen to your body when it is sending you mixed signals? When you try to listen to your body and it refuses to cooperate with your intentions? When you finally decide to sample some of the foods on your list of foods you designated as “bad” and your body revolts? Read More
Satan’s favourite tactic for sabotaging my faith is tempting me with self-hate. It is good to be humble and honest about our sinfulness, but allowing our imperfections to define us after we have brought them to the foot of the cross makes Satan, not Jesus, our Lord.
For many of us, this is one of the most common sins we fall into.
God promises us He will always provide a way out of temptation (1 Cor. 10:13, EDITION). For me, prayers of thankfulness are the key to fighting my way out. Read More
