In defense of fat sadness.
Your Fat Friend

It’s hard to always internalize harsh criticisms and hurtful words. Society expects us to brush everything off and if we don’t, we’re criticized even more. How dare we show emotion on top of not adhering to social norms and beauty standard? Nobody seems to care that no one can bottle up so much hurt without it eventually spewing out of them; they don’t want to acknowledge it. Nevermind the fact that all emotions are natural and it’s healthy to express them!
