So, I was chatting to someone that I hadn’t chatted to in a long time. We were catching up and I mentioned the tattoo I got for my birthday (in my mom’s honor). And he asked to see a picture. So I linked to my flickr account. Then he started paging around my feed a bit and he said, “ur [sic] bigger now. fatter i saw a pic for [sic] u” I called him out on it but it still was really insensitive and hurt.
Stuff like this is why I’m very uncomfortable taking pictures of myself. People are so rude and downright mean-spirited about it if you gain weight, even the smallest amount. People are so strange and ill-tempered about weight. It’s something I did in the past but am trying very hard to fix and correct.
Just because someone is heavier than you, personally, are comfortable with does not diminish their worth.
