You hear a lot about anti-bullying lately – especially on social media and the news. But no one seems to think about thin people when they talk about groups being bullied or “shamed”
As a naturally thin person, I have always heard the “you’re sooooo skinny”, “do you even eat?”, or “I don’t know how you stay alive that thin…” comments. Whether as a college kid who didn’t care about exercising and lived on ramen noodles, or as an adult who practices yoga, hunts, and eats spinach salads like it’s her business … I have ALWAYS looked like this. That doesn’t stop the comments though. No matter how many times I tell people “Yeah, I am thin. I know’ or “Yes, I eat plenty…” or “I stay alive because I’m healthy….”, it still doesn’t stop.
So, just a suggestion for the day. Try to stop thinking of people in terms of how they look. Thin, heavy, tall, short, long hair, short hair, whatever. No more mean comments, no more judging people, no more talking behind their backs. Let’s just all start looking out for each other and supporting each other. What your body looks like isn’t what matters – it’s what your soul looks like.
