(To give people some bearing on where this little message comes from, I've worked really hard over the past 6 months and lost almost 60 pounds.)
So today I got told "Congratulations on losing all that weight. You're still fat and ugly though."
I think maybe I should have felt annoyed? But I didn't. I actually started laughing the moment I read it... cause honestly, he can say what he wants, it's a free country, but if he was trying to hurt me- he failed miserably. I'd like to put that in caps just in case he happens to read this.
YOU FAILED MISERABLY.
It didn't hurt for even an instant. I actually feel kind of sorry for him. I mean, if he really feels like he has to say those kind of things to me... then I imagine he must not have a very high self esteem. Either that or his life is so dreary he has to pull people down to his level of discontent. Sorry kid. You picked the wrong person to try to hinder. I refuse to be pulled anywhere that I don't want to go, and I don't want to go back to the place I was a year ago- when I actually believed that I had no (or very little) value.
Unfortunatley for him, I am perfectly content with the way I am, and I honestly don't care about other peoples opinions reguarding how I look. The only thing he succeeded in doing was making me realize just how far I've come. I was actually surprised by how much I DID NOT care about what he said, and I guess that's why I am writing this. Because I'm kind of proud, and a bit relieved, to know that I can live through the good and the bad- no matter what. A year ago a comment like that wouldn't have only bothered me, it probably would've sent me over the deep end in one way or another.
So this is a note to the man who intended me harm. Thank you for helping affirm that I have value no matter what anyone says. I'm truly greatful.
<3 Au revoir, niais. <3
