What makes you think that dropping a few pounds will give you more opportunity?
I am fat. I have always been overweight. I have experienced my fair share of bullshit for being fat, all of which has been out of my control.
But if there’s one thing I AM in control of, it’s how I treat myself and others, where I decide to take my life, and the opportunities I take advantage of.
Whatever you feel is being stripped from you for not being thin enough - it doesn’t really exist. You are capable of any and all things, regardless of weight.
You’re only standing in your own way when you give in and think life will magically become easier the moment you drop a dress size.
