Loved this post. 3 years ago I was a UK size 6, full of energy and life. Then I became ill and people thought I’d given up, got lazy and didn’t care for them any more. In fact I was heading into a coma and worse. I’m now a healthy UK size 14 and does it matter to me, not at all as the health issue almost killed me!
I saw this ages ago
The Girl you just called fat? She has been starving herself & has lost over 30lbs. The Boy you called stupid, he has a learning disability & studies over 4hrs a night. The Girl you called ugly? She spends hours putting make-up on hoping people will like her. The Boy you just tripped? He is abused enough at home. There’s a lot more to people then you think.
