So over the past few weeks I have come across some issues that I thought were settled in my life. All be it not settled till after college but mainly out of mind. The dreaded skinny comments. Have you ever reacted to something and reacted in a way you thought you would not. I remember as a child people grabbing my wrist and saying “you are so skinny” “I can put my fingers all the way around it.” Now I know those who struggle with weight issues are like get over it you skinny b****. But it hurts the same. I want people to know that. So we were waiting at Cracker Barrell to get in and guy grabbed my wrist. I reacted quickly pulled my wrist and almost punched him. Wow didn’t know that still bothered me.
Well the other night a guy I look up said “I like a girl with a little more meat on her bones” His explanation was guys are visual. I am atracted to guys based on looks don’t get me wrong but more character, personality, work ethic ect. This hurt. I felt that I had been stabbed in the chest. I know he probably did not mean it that way. But, if a guy is reading this be tender with your words to ladies even if they are just friends. We listen and are easily wounded. I immediately without realizing it thought guys don’t think I am attractive. I will never find someone. I am over it now. I soarted out my feelings. I talked to an ex… I know I know that is never good. It didn’t work out between him and I but he said me being skinny didn’t affect him. He thinks I am beautiful. So I wait for my prince charming who loves me just the say I am. So to humor you things not to say to a skinny person.
#1 You really need to gain some weight.
#2 You would look better if you gained weight
#3 You need to drink Ensure
#4 Do you eat?
I could go on forever. I just know the world would be a better place if we thought before we spoke. I am guilty of this at times. Ahhh I feel better!! Thanks 🙂
