‘She would be so pretty if she just lost weight…’

I think if we are honest, we have all had a hurtful comment that has embedded itself deep within us.

The one that was said flippantly and with no realisation of the detrimental effects those words would cause.

The comment below wasn’t said about me.
It was said TO me.
About a beautiful young lady actually, but the comment took my breath away.
What if people say that about me? What if people have such a strong opinion about me that is so, so cruel?

And there and then, an insecurity was born that has dictated my emotions and self esteem for over 20 years.

‘She would be so pretty if she just lost weight…’ ow!
