I mostly wanted to write this to ask everyone’s advice on how to deal with this situation. I was in an extremely good mood this morning, it’s beautiful weather, I am wearing summer clothes, and everything is fine and dandy.
I pass by this guy who sells noodles on my corner, he always says hi to me, and waves or asks some question. He says hi, I say hi back, and he proceeds by telling me “You should do arm wrestling competitions because your arms are so big.”
Now, I know he is just some silly guy whose opinion doesn’t matter, but I immediately wanted to cry. When somebody takes a part of my body that I am self-conscious about and makes fun of it, I just don’t know how to deal with it. I want to curl up in a ball and have a pity party. I would really appreciate some advice.
How do you deal with people’s “innocent” negative comments about your figure?
