“Maganda ka sana maliit ka lang.”
“Maganda ka sana mataba ka lang.”
“You’re beautiful, you’re just small.”
“You’re beautiful, you’re just fat.”
Do I ever get offended hearing those words? Yes, of course. But that was before. I have been bullied because of my size. I also know people who secretly take photos of me to send to their friends so they can have something to laugh about. But you know what, none of that mattered. I choose my battles wisely. At least that’s what I learned from the past. If I deal with every person who would do that to me, it would cost my time and energy. Besides, it says more about them, right?
People can throw harsh words at you, but once you’ve accepted and love who you are, no one can use them against you.
I have too many flaws to be perfect, but I have too many blessings to be ungrateful.
