Why do we feel bad when told 'You are adding weight'?
Me, you, most people. Women especially.We just dont like it when people say we are getting bigger. Could it be cos we have been made to believe in our subconscious that big isnt nice? that skinny is it? Could it be cos we wish we wouldnt get fat?
I met with some friend over the weekend, we hadnt seen each other in over 5 years. one of us used to be real skinny back in the day. Lo and behold, the day we met, she was fatly fat! It was all i could do not to shout out in shock. As God will have it, i didnt. Someone else did and did she get tongue lashed for it? She went - 'what? so-and-so, what happened to you (like the fat girl had a terminal infection or something) How come you are now this big??? Our former-skinny-but-now-fat friend just gave it back to her instantly! 'what is your business? Do u feed me?What nonsense? You, why are u so skinny? What happened to you? It is how i want to be and it dosent concern anybody'. She went on and on and on. We had to intervene in order not to spoil the reunion. Maybe it was the way the 1st girl presented the 'fat' issue. But i have reaslized that women genrally, dont like been told they are adding weight
I dont think i like it either, though i tell myself before anyone tells me so it doesnt hurt as much.
