A netizen who has experienced hurtful comments for being plus-sized shared her sentiments about not hanging oneself in order to be accepted and loved.
Facebook user Leah Jean Villafane shared her experiences on being plus-sized and reminded everybody to love themselves and not change for anybody just because of their physical traits.
"Nahuhurt ako every time na may nagsasabi sakin ng 'Papayat ka na. Liligawan talaga kita', some says, 'Kaya ka walang boyfriend kasi ang taba mo eh'. Lagi ko lang dinadaan sa biro yung sagot ko like 'Ayoko kasi magpapayat kasi maraming maglalaway sakin' or 'Mamomroblema kasi nanay ko dahil dadami suitors ko pag pumayat ako' too much confidence, eh? Nope. Deep inside, gusto kong sabihin na 'No, hindi ako magpapapayat para lang sa isang lalaki at kung pumayat man ako, hindi ako magpapaligaw sayo'.
Why? Kasi parang sinabi mo lang na hindi mo ko gusto bilang ako. Na gusto mo pumayat ako hindi para sakin kundi para sayo. You just made me question myself, 'Why do I have to lose weight in order for me to have a relationship? Is it a requirement?'
I like people who loves me being stout. It feels like they appreciate the real me without judging me physically.
Yes of course, I know, I am very much aware of my body. I'm fat but I have more to offer. I may not have a perfect body to fit your taste but I know I have more than what you are looking for. I know my worth and being fat does not degrade me.
And if ever losing weight comes across my mind, that would definitely not because of you nor somebody else, but because it's my own decision to look good and love myself even more.
To those who have a chubby partner, kudos to you! You just proved to everyone that weight is not a basis in love. That the most genuine love comes from the heart not by the eyes.
And to my dear millennials, you should never judge a person by his looks whether he is fat, slim, tall, short, white or dark. Because most of the people who have imperfect physical features has the most kind heart and selfless attitude. And that we should respect and accept each and everyone's imperfections just like how we accept our own
Ang dami kong sinabi, gusto ko lang naman sabihin na ang sexy ko dito at wala akong pake sa sinasabi ng ibang tao."
