Hi everyone, I am back after quite a long break due to personal reasons. I haven’t felt myself so I haven’t been able to find any inspiration. I have been making many positive changes in my mind recently and I am excited to see what the future holds for me and my family!
I have really missed updating the blog; and I have lots of new and exciting posts to come 🙂
Just a quick story for you today about an experience I had a few weeks ago. I was out in Camden Town with some friends a few weeks ago, where I was publically fat shamed by a young man showing off in front of his friends.
Me and my beautiful best friend were walking through the busy bar to go to the toilet, as we passed a table where a group of guys were all congregated, one of them saw us approaching and jumped back from us shouting “whoahhhhhh” at the top of his voice so everyone pretty much stood round in other groups looked at us as well. I confronted the issue with said young man, who then proceeded to laugh in my face along with his group of identically narrow minded friends.
It didn’t upset me because I don’t allow it to. I’m comfortable in my own skin and that’s all that matters to me. It’s the fact that if he had been sat alone, he wouldn’t have done anything. If he had been walking past us on the street, he wouldn’t have shouted in our faces and jumped out of the way. What amazes me is that people still have this attitude that they think it is ok to bully others when they are grown men. It’s so secondary school. Why is it still socially acceptable? I know he wouldn’t have tried to humiliate someone for their ethnicity or gender so why is it ok to humiliate someone who is plus size?
Rant over! Let me know if you’ve had any experiences like this, you can contact me using the buttons below
