For years I thought that my weight was the cause of my loneliness, that I would never find anyone to love me because I was fat. The truth was I didn’t value myself so I let dick head guys make me feel shit.
Then one day I met a guy at work and he was so polite, friendly and lovely. He wasn’t my usual type, but he was handsome and sweet. I thought we were just friends, because ya know, guys were always too ashamed to actually go out with me. Then out of the blue one week he asked me out, he said he thought I was funny, beautiful and that I had a cute welsh accent.
It was weird to have someone look beyond my size as so many guys wanted to keep me as some dirty fat secret. So, I took a chance and said yes. Turns out that was a good choice because 6 years down the line I am literally happier than I have ever ever ever been in my life. Dan makes me feel like the most special person in the world and he is 100% part of the reason why I am in such a content place with my body image.
Where I’m trying to go with this is please don’t let the way people treat you make you feel like you don’t deserve the happy ending. Open your minds and hearts to the idea that love surpasses looks and size, be kind to yourself and to other people and you will welcome in opportunities that will lead to special things. Most importantly believe in yourself and your worth, love starts with yourself and that truly is the greatest love story.
