26“I think you should get busy interfering in your own anorexic life, and leave my fat space to my fat, and humble, self. What do you think?”


27“Why do you think opening that space you call a mouth would make any difference. Go and be useful somewhere else. Save a plant or something…”

29“If that is the only way you know how to express your jealousy then you are mentally unstable. You should get yourself checked right away.”

Truth be told, when someone calls you fat it hurts and you may be taken aback, but one of the best things you can do for yourself is to be comfortable in your body.

There is nothing wrong with standing up for yourself, although violence of any form or kind should not be encouraged. You should at all times be proud of yourself and stand up for what’s right.

When someone calls you fat it always feels good to stick it to them, it is also sometimes preferable to just walk away; they are not worth your time.
