A few days ago, I talked about my feelings of anger over the cruel things that have been said about me in the past because of my weight. I talked about how angry I was at myself for internalizing these criticism when I know better.
I saw this video today on Facebook in which this news anchor takes to task someone who sent her a very rude email about her weight. She’s my new hero. Take that mean people.
Seriously, though, I think we need to change the dialogue about weight and health issues. The bottom line is nobody knows what is going on in someone else’s life. The news anchor may have a medical condition or be on medication which affects weight. Maybe she is perfectly happy with her weight. Maybe she is working with her doctor to help her lose weight. The point is, it is nobody’s business.
I stand by the statement that what someone else says about you says more about them than you.
