I work in a Nursing Home/Rehab Center... I work 14hr days on Fri, Sat, and Sun. I work with a number of women who are overweight and who are always trying the newest diets and fads. The one I call the Fruit Nazi came outside today while I was sitting in the sun enjoying my ginormous bowl of fruit that I cut and packed at home, loving the unseasonably cool weather for SW Florida. She comes out and makes a bee-line.. yes, a bee-line for me and starts bad mouthing my fruit. Talking about how fruit and vegetables are not going to help me lose weight and that She saw me last weekend and the past two days walking around the outside of the building during my mini-breaks, and how there is no hope for me and that if I really wanted to lose weight I wouldnt have gotten so F*T in the first place!
I didnt even know what to say to her. I was so flabbergasted that I just sat there because I knew that whatever came out of my mouth was going to be hateful and mean and I am not usually I violent person but I might have hurt her for realz. I didnt want to feel bad about myself for saying something that I might not apologize for but that I might feel bad about later. Karma is a biznatch and it will bite her in the end is what I told myself.
However, the other nurses that were out there were not as nice as I was and they tore her a new one. I thanked them, told them it wasnt necessary, but deep down inside, I loved them for it.
I just want to know how someone can be so horrible and mean and nasty to someone who is just trying to better their life. I want to be happy, I realize that I dont have to be thin to be happy.. I am a good natured person, I am a nuturer and I like to take care of others. I know that just by STARTING to take care of myself, and put me first, I am already feeling better about myself. I am starting to be a happier person, and not just a smile when people are around person that I have realized I was starting to become. This is for me.. not for anyone else.. so those who dont like it can stop watching me and start paying attention to their own lives.
