So, yesterday, a friend of mine posted this as her status – “SERIOUSLY don’t understand how people can just walk up to you and ask “Why did you become so fat?” I mean, is there no limit to rudeness? Don’t they stop and think that people might have a weight issue because of a medical problem? I am tired of explaining to people that I don’t need to DIET simply because I DO NOT OVEREAT!! If I cut down my food any more I will be skipping meals!! Why do I have to explain my life history to such obnoxious people?? One would expect so-called friends to be supportive not downright boors!!”
And it hit me. Hard. Because I’ve been facing this issue quite a lot lately. Random people, people who do not know me, people I’ve hardly interacted with, seem to just randomly shoot their mouths off without even the slightest bit of sensitivity.
To the person who asked me to get liposuction done. – Dude, seriously? Do you even know what my problem is or what I’ve been through? Do you even have the faintest idea about medical science? Who do you think you are, giving me advice about my weight? My doctor? I could give you a whole list of reasons why what you said is wrong and downright insensitive. But the problem is, knuckleheads like you don’t seem to get sarcasm. The irony in all of this ? You’re much younger, and much much more overweight than I am. So you’re basically a knucklehead hypocrite who thinks nothing of other people’s feelings. You seem to have no manners at all, anyway. I figured that out by the way you took my phone that was lying on my desk and went through my messages, while I was right there, tongue-tied at your boorishness. And I know you read this blog, and are on my list. You might wonder why I didn’t say this to your face. Well, there are a couple of reasons. The most important one being, because your IQ level is lesser than my shoe size, you wouldn’t be able to understand what I am trying to tell you.
Secondly, do you even know what liposuction entails? How painful that is? How many scars it leaves, physically and mentally? My best friend had it done, and he has 12 inch scars, on both sides of his hips and had to be in bed for a long time. And has to still go to the gym for 2 hours every day to maintain the body he has. So no, it’s not as rosy as you thought it would be.
What you said is wrong on so many levels, that I cannot begin to list them here. It’s taken me 30 years to love myself and be comfortable in my own skin. I am not going to let you or any other f**ktard take that away from me. There is more to a person than what you see. And the day you realize that, you will be a much better person. So instead of being an insensitive jerk, how about you go work on yourself first? The world could do very well with one less village boor.
