They Don’t See

When people look at me, they just see my stretch marks.

They don’t see the 5 lives I’ve saved.

They don’t see me giving back to the community.

They don’t see me teaching young children to read.

 

When people look at me, all they see is my weight.

They don’t see my athletic career.

They don’t see my honors diploma.

They don’t see my kindness.

 

When people look at me, they just see my obesity.

They don’t see me volunteering with dogs.

They don’t see me working 3 jobs.

They don’t see who I really am

And that’s a true shame.

  1. How do you know what they see? A genuine question. I read your blog quite a bit now ive found it and it seems you are your own worst critic. You are enough. You feelings are totally valid. Just have some belief in yourself and basically say fuck you to anyone that doesnt believe in you cause they dont deserve your attention. Stay strong (as hard as it is) and be happy. 🙂
