Body shaming can depress you since you can’t go out and expose yourself because of your fat body. But, this kind of negative statements and attitude towards other people’s size can also offer different lessons where you can learn to love who you are. Here are some of the important things you can learn from body shaming and these are as follows:

There are some people who are insensitive and mean. They cannot ignore you hence they keep on saying comments regarding your body. This is one thing that every person needs to deal and handle with. Have in mind that that their fat comments are just their insecurities to make sure that this won’t affect you in a negative way.

2.You Are Responsible for Your Feeling

You can be depressed upon hearing people who body shames against you or you can respond and deal with it in a positive way. You need to learn defending yourself and be contented and proud of whom you are. You don’t need to be ashamed of especially if you are happy and healthy.

3. Worthiness is Not Dependent to Other’s Compliment

Body weight and worthiness are not friends. These two are different from each other that you need to learn. Your weight will not determine your worthiness. Even if you are not as good looking as others, it doesn’t mean that you’re not a good person. Be yourself and let other’s compliments be your inspiration at all times to do well.

4.Anger as Your Valid Response

Angry is a common feeling when some people are shaming you. It can be your friends, relatives or sometimes your parents who are displaying negative comments or statements about your body. When such situation happened, feeling angry is a normal and valid response.

5. Unhealthy and Fat are Different

Any person could be over ninety kilos and above and yet he or she can still be considered healthy. This is one of the concept that people cannot easily get hence they tend them to immediately lose their weight fast. They wanted to be healthy and this can only be evident if they have normal body weight and shape. Well, this is not true since unhealthy and fat are two different things that you need to understand. You can be healthy at the same time bigger depending on your choice.

Body shame is part of people’s life and as changes in your weight and body continuous to happen to expect for more people who are going to body shame you. Do not take such incident as a negative one rather makes this as your inspiration to live happy and healthy. As long as you are not stepping on other people’s life and happiness, being fat or big is not a problem.
