I am not really sure when this happened or how it even got my attention but I will tell you this, I am unnervingly, irritatingly, full on sick to the pit of my stomach of people and their unsolicited yet so righteous opinions. If you cant choose your words carefully or even at the least have the decency to know that some topics are personal .. better yet downright taboo , then you I call , IGNORANT ,TO A FAULT!
I live in a society where telling someone you´ve gained weight , or you need to do something about your weight , or you look round or you used to be alot smaller seems to be okay… Guess what? Its NOT! I gather ,as long as you are not the one walking around
carrying all that extra baggage that YOU ( please refer to self ) seem to think the other party has , how is it YOUR BUSINESS? We have a saying in our tribe where they say : ´It is only the wearer of the shoe ,who knows where it pains most!´
I will say this to all you ignorant retards and prissy know it alls only once and that will be here; WEIGHT or whatever comes with it or is associated to it is a personal matter , a holy grail ,something sacred and very close to the heart whether it affects YOU who choose to point a finger or THEY the said round party .
If its an eye sore to you , discomforting or even disheartening then by all means do what normal , cultured and clearly enlightened people do , close your eyes, walk away , throw up, completely ignore that person or shutdown and if its really that serious , jump off a roof or a plane mid air .. the choice to take a parachute or not is completely up to you !
In the words of Steve Maraboli :
“Get Off The Scale!
You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.
Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.
It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!”
With that said … any and all future attempts to brandish ignorance will simply be put like this :
“Every weight loss prescription, no matter how positively it’s packaged, whispers to you that you’re not right. You’re not good enough. You’re unacceptable and you need to be fixed.”

For the umpteenth time I say this: HE who KNOWS NOT and KNOWS NOT that HE KNOWS NOT is a FOOL ………………..SHUN HIM!
