I saw this on Instagram, and just had to share it. Year after year, so many of my family members would comment on my weight and body. At the time, I didn’t understand how damaging and cruel that was. I thought it was my fault for being fat. I believed them when they said, “I only bring it up because I’m looking out for your health.”
This year, we all have the power to simply shut the fuck up. If someone gained weight over the pandemic, making a comment about it is the surefire way to alienate the wonderful fat people in your life.
