Others: You’re sexy.
Me: Thank you!
Others: You’re thin.
Me: Thank you!
Others: You’re fat.
Me: Thank you!
I think the best reaction for all the comments about your body is “Thank you!” and let them wonder until their brains blew off. Why? It’s because there is nothing wrong with you or your body’s look, size, weight, or height. The problem is with them who is commenting. They either want to bully you, get something from you, tease you, envy you, jealous of you, get your wife or husband, get your girlfriend or boyfriend, sympathize with you, appreciate you or plainly just want to start a chat with you. So before you blew your head off thinking why they commented you about you, then let them be the one to wonder why you are just saying thank you.
“What’s wrong with being fat?” says the fat people
“What’s wrong with being thin?” says the thin people
People have different views in body sizes. People have different beliefs and culture about the body. People have different body composition. If you say, being fat or thin is bad for the health then let me ask you this, “Are all the dead people, because of health issues, only fat or only thin?” I believe there are people who died even if they are said to be “fit.” What is the perfect body size? Says who? The majority or the fitness guru or the health professionals? Can they say 100% sure that you won’t die if you have this or that perfect body size? Isn’t it just for “business” or “earning” purposes that they are telling you to hit the gym said the gym instructor or drink this health supplements said by health companies or do some liposuction said the cosmetic surgeon or eat organic only said the farmer or this and that said by this and that for them to earn?
What I think is that people need to know what is good for them, what makes them feel good, what makes them happy. Society, doctors, health professionals are there to guide if we need help but not really define us. The only person who can really define you, compete with you and should affect you the most is no other than yourself. Are you happy with your body? Do you think that your body is heavy for you? Do you think that your body needs a little more weight? Why are you achieving the perfect body size? Is it because you want to look good or better for yourself or for someone or for what the society dictates?
Next time someone commented you about you, just say thank you because whatever your reaction is, it will only reflects your definition of yourself and how you look on other people. It will also make the other person happier or contented if they see that they affected you in some way. If you get hurt when someone said that you are fat, why? Is it because you also think that being fat is bad? If fat is bad, why are babies cute especially when they are fat? Parents want their children fat because they look more healthy. If you get hurt or lash on to someone because they said that you are thin, why? People go to the gym just to make themselves slimmer.
Some people are fat, some people are thin so there is nothing to compare about but yourself. If you are happy with yourself, then your body will respond to it thus, it will be happy and healthy since your body feels that you are happy and not sad or depressed. Some people will be happy if you are happy and some people will be sad when you are happy. But what can you really do about it? People are like that and life is like that. But you can do something about yourself and the way you see things. Accept yourself, be content and be happy with your life.
