Dear Skinny People

21 Feb

Dear Skinny People,

I’ve always wondered if you look at me strangely because I’m overweight or because I’m constantly begging for your approval. Is it that obvious? Well, your looks of distain are just as obvious to me. Just thought you should know that.

Overweight person

P.S. I’m still a person, even though I don’t look like you.

    Dear Big-Person,
    I’m skinny. I hate it. In some cultures, being big is a sign of being healthy. And no matter how much I eat, I’m still the same weight.
    I don’t look at you with disgust. I look at you with admiration.
    People are never happy, one way or the other.
    Sincerely,
    Little-Person.

    Dear Overweight Person,

    I am sorry if you thought my looks were of disgust. In reality my thought while looking at you were “how come they can be so happy and love themselves even though they are over weight when I am of average weight and I’m miserable and hating myself.”

    sincerly,
    never happy with me

    Overweight Person,
    I sometimes think like you. I think people must look at me with utter revulsion. But other days I love myself beyond all belief. Somedays I don’t care if people stare as I dance the 15 minute walk back to my apartment. I don’t care if people look at me as I row contentedly away in the gym. Other days the stares are crippling. Other days I can’t force myself to go to the gym because I think people will judge me. I hope both of us have more good day than bad. I always love myself, just sometimes I think others don’t love me back. You are loved beyond belief in every shape and size! As long as you are happy with yourself then all is well.
    To LucyDoll
    Darling you gotta realize that you are of greater worth than whatever standard you’re trying to live up to! I guarentee there is someone out there who loves you! I am actually really jealous of my room mates who can just look normal. I have never looked normal in my whole life. I’ve always been fat and thats why I learned to be happy. Happiness is never given, you have to take it! So find something you love! Be it dancing, be it writing, be it photography find it and just throw yourself in. You’ll be all the happier for it! I hope you have the most wonderful day ever!

    To all: You ARE AMAZING! Don’t let anyone tell you different. Each person is different and each situation is different. Never mind the naysayers. Find yourself a good couple personal cheerleaders and call them when you’re feeling down! Life is meant to be enjoyed. Wether you enjoy it or not it will pass so you might as well jump on the happy train! I hope you all have the most excellent days!
