I was bullied for being skinny back when skinny was “in”. I’m bullied today by grown women that say “a man will never love you. Real men like meat on their woman’s bones”, “you look sick”, “you must think you’re better than me”, “you need to eat a burger”, “you’re too skinny, it’s gross”. Sometimes women give me dirty looks because their significant other is “checking me out”. .
I’m in perfect health.
So to my naturally skinny people, this is for you. Love yourself. It took me 23 years to accept that I’ll never be what these bullies wanted me to be. I never looked at a magazine or watched TV and wanted to be like the women there. I simply didn’t want to be noticed. I wanted to just blend in. I wanted to be a fly on the wall. .
I am one of those people that can eat whatever they want and still stay skinny. People have been furious with me because of it. Do I eat what I want? No. I eat healthy foods and I’m vegetarian because it is what’s best for me. I splurge every now and again and have a pop or cheese pretzel. I just want to be healthy, live in this body that maintains itself with the guidance of my brain, and to be left alone. Being skinny doesn’t make me a “disgusting anomaly” like society wanted me to believe. .
Skinny people, you don’t owe anyone an explanation as to why you’re skinny. You don’t need an excuse or reason. You don’t need to feel bad for not being able to gain weight. We all have our struggles, and this is one of mine and there are many like me. .
I’ve always struggled to gain weight. I’ve been bullied for just being in the presence of an overweight person. Now when I receive hateful comments about it, I ignore it or I play along. I am the only person that needs to truly accept me. Not you. .
