Family Frustration

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Growing up,I was always on the heavy side but I was never really bullied in school for it so it was more or less okay.

But my family made up for all of it. I have a very large family. Every time I see any of my relatives, all they would ever talk about would be my weight. They would act concerned and say it would be better if I went on a diet, "you want to be pretty and find a man don't you?" I would get so annoyed!

And it wasn't even family who would say these kinds of things, family friends would say it too. That's why I always hated going to parties and weddings because I didn't want to get insulted over and over again. It hurt... it hurt that all they could see was my weight. Those old people who think they know me, who think it's easy to be a kid (no offence to those here who surpass me in age).

Every time I would go to my aunt's house for a family dinner everyone would comment as soon as I start eating. "Don't eat too much, you don't want to get any fatter." I had a single bite of salad! Would you prefer if I was anorexic?! But then if I don't eat, they'll start saying, "What's the matter why aren't you eating? Finally going on that diet? Afraid of getting fat?" Like seriously??? SHUT UP FOR TWO SECONDS AND LOOK AT YOURSELF! YOU'RE BIGGER THAN I AM!

I love my family honestly I do but sometimes I really want to punch some of them. So in the end i really want to lose this wait before my next cousin's wedding just to shove it in all their faces...

    Let that frustration be your fuel. But remember, it will only STAY off if you do for you not for anyone else. You should start standing up for yourself. Give them back what they give you. And know that a good man will find you no matter what your weight is if he is meant for you.
