Today’s Inspiration | Your weight loss may make other people uncomfortable because it reminds them of how they feel about the pounds the they want to lose but haven’t. It may make people uncomfortable because they have been told that they are “Less Than” because they are overweight. It may make people uncomfortable because they will compare their beauty, health, and desirableness to yours and feel they come up short.
However, you are not responsible for their emotions or opinions. You may wish them the best, but you don’t have to be made to feel bad because of your weight loss victories. WE each have to deal with our issues and be self aware of the real source of our pain. When people attack you or second guess your choice to lose weight, look beyond their words and hear where the negativity is really coming from. If you do, you will be able to respond with compassion. – Ajima
