Dealing with the Haters

As I was looking through a Facebook weight loss support group, I couldn't have noticed how there are people posting about their experiences being fat shamed and bullied. I personally found this disturbing and disgusting. IT IS NEVER OKAY TO FAT SHAME! You don't know a single thing about someone's life and you decide to berate and bully them for struggling with their weight. You don't know what they have been through, they could've lost a loved one and they could be using food to comfort themselves. They could be struggling with their emotions and food is their only coping mechanism. They could be working hard to better themselves. If you are fat shaming, remember that you are a part of the problem. You need to be supportive and treat others with kindness and respect no matter what. Yes, being obese is unhealthy and can lead to a lot of illnesses. I don't support the idea of ignoring the basic fact that being fat isn't good for you. If you are obese, it is important to lose weight so you can live a healthier, better life. But being obese doesn't make you any less of a person. You are a valuable person no matter what, don't let others tear you down and have your self worth be determined by how you look. The haters are just angry people who want to feel better about themselves so they just bring others down to do that. Don't let them affect you, just ignore them. Their opinion is worthless. Keep doing your thing, work hard and achieve your goals and show those haters that you don't care what they think!
