She might be your next door neighbor. His locker could be next to yours. She could be your sister. He might be your father. No matter how big or small of a part they play in your life, we all know someone who is overweight. More importantly, even if we have never witnessed it, we know that they are being teased. Someone is whispering about them on the bus, scoffing at them as they walk by, laughing and taunting them in front of their peers, or even psychically abusing them.
How often are they able are they able to escape the torture? Are they only persecuted at school and in public places, or are they receiving verbal and psychical punishment at home as well? Have they come to grips with their body or are they taking playing a part in the abuse that is being inflicted upon themselves? Might they starve themselves to become more "beautiful" or could they be eating their meals with a happy face only to vomit it into the toilet with tears running down their face.
No matter how many times you tell someone they are beautiful, if deep down they believe that their weight is an issue, whether they weigh 80 pounds or 300 pounds, saying "you're beautiful" is never enough. They still face that abuse; whether is be from others or self-inflicted.
The word beautiful does not play hostage to one definition. We all have different opinions of what beauty looks like to us. But no matter how we define it, it is never okay to toss stones at those things that don't feel beautiful to us. That only reflects how ugly you are.
