they call me fat
make me feel ashamed
ashamed to eat
ashamed to enjoy food
ashamed to go out
ashamed to be seen
ashamed to look at
my reflection in the mirror
ashamed to think
ashamed to breath
ashamed to be human
ashamed to be me
being ashamed has
become my identity
i am not human anymore
i only exist so
others can mock me
force me to stop inside
and eat more and more
exacerbating the problem
completing the circle of
problem, abuse, shame
a vicious circle
that consumes me
a vicious circle
that i cannot escape

    This is sad💔.
    People ought to feel loved no matter how they appear. If it becomes too much of concern that someone is fat it helps to encourage them to find healthy n positive ways to lose some weight rather than abusing n shaming them.
    Love this post💚💚
