KAMI learned that even the sexy Solenn Heussaff has her share of body-shaming comments but instead of calling herself a "victim," she considers herself a "survivor" who had successfully overcome the awkward stage.
Solenn was rushed to the hospital when she was 13 because she was only eating half of an apple a day.
She posted a blog entitled "Can We Be Done With Saying 'Ang Taba Taba Mo?'" which truly revealed how she was able to condition her mind not to overthink and overreact to bashing.
In her blog, she wrote,
After years of feeling annoyed, frustrated, and trying every diet available in the market to conform to people’s opinions of me, I said to myself, 'F**k this. Why am I so hurt and affected by what others think?'
"Especially when the people who tell me I’m fat don’t know anything about what I’m going through and don’t even know the first thing about health.
"I’ve come to realize that people who shame others are the same people who don’t know what it’s like to love and accept who they are."
"People now have forgotten that health is more important than size, and that meaningful conversations are so much helpful than unsolicited criticism."
She questioned, "Since when did 'Tumaba ka' become society’s new 'Hello'?"
Solenn also advised her fans not to be easily affected by "these monsters of humanity" and emphasized that there are things that may work for others and not for you, and vice versa which makes us INDIVIDUALS.
"There is literally no one else like you in the world, and that’s pretty amazing."
Ended her blog post by reminding,
"If ever someone ever comes up to you and says Those Words again, just smile and walk away. Trust me, you are so much happier than they are—and that already makes you the better person."
