I just need to get this off my chest and I hands up admit that some of my irrational mind translates these throw away remarks in a downright irrational negative way but sometimes people should THINK before they speak.
"OMG you have gained so much weight" Nobody wants to hear this.
"You don't LOOK like you have an eating disorder" Yeah because its a mental illness
"I know so & so and they have a problem whereas you... you look much healthier" Crazy I know but that just translates as fat to me. Sadly I do enough comparing on own and don't need other people to do it for me.
"Have you gained yet?" None of your god damn business
"Your face looks really puffy" Probably because I've been crying (again)! In my mind I just heard... "Your face got really fat"
In the gym... "Slacking off are you?" "Go a bit faster" "Work harder" k thanks for your input but my mind repeats these every minute of the day I don't need them vocalised.
A really irrational one on my behalf but "You look so WELL" just makes me feel like hell. Its a compliment but it stirs up so much in my mind its unreal.
Wearing your heart on your sleeve really does come at a price sometimes but I won't become glued to a heart rate monitor to count every bleeding calorie because of daft comments. Its just not worth it really is it...?
