Thank you for just telling me I’m ugly, childish, worthless, and good for nothing and no one but dogs. Thank you very much indeed.
I think I’ve tweeted about this before, but why is it acceptable to walk up to someone and say, “You’re so skinny and should eat more”?
I picture myself out with friends and telling my heavier one, “You’re fat. Stop eating.”
I have a friend who tends toward heaviness, but she doesn’t even eat that much. She probably eats as much (or little) as I do, but her body is different. Her mother had four children and is “fat.” My mother had four children and is “skinny.”
As long as we are making healthy choices for our bodies, I don’t think weight should be a topic to discuss. If someone is starving or stuffing themselves, you should talk to them not because it will make them ugly, but because it is unhealthy.
Your inner being is far more important than your outer shell anyway. Inner beauty includes loving God with your heart, soul, and mind. It includes caring about others as yourself. Don’t fool yourself into believing you’re only pretty if men are drooling (dogs, anyone?) over you. Real men care about your soul and appreciate your body the way it is.
