In the last 2 weeks, I’ve been called ‘skinny’ twice. Not that I am skinny…. technically, I am still overweight. But it was an acknowledgement of my progress, and meant to be flattering. And truly; it was; I felt the smile immediately rise.
Still; each time it left me thinking after : why THAT word? It’s kind of weird that somehow that’s a compliment. And I am not shitting on anyone intent; after all, I was flattered…. but there is something a bit off, I think, that the word has some sort of value associated with it. I can’t quite place my feelings, but…. I have decided I don’t like that word.
