7. I'm sorry you're feeling so awful

People who go out of their way to comment on your surface are people who are not worth your thoughts.

That said, it still hurts, no matter how you tell yourself it is a reflection of who they are, not who you are.

I wish there were something to make it less painful, but in the end, they truly are just people trying to feel better about themselves by making you feel bad.

How sick and sad is that? That these people who are what society deems "right" must constantly push others down to make themselves feel like enough.

I'm not pretty, I'm fat, and I'm old. I am constantly told by people outside my family that I'm not good enough. Over the years, I have managed to learn to ignore it, but it is a struggle.

Good luck. Who you are inside is beautiful and you need to nurture that person.
