tw: mentions of eating disorder.
I am a big girl, who loves a skinny boy. And I’ve dealt with a lot because of this. People never know why we’re together. People ask me if I intend to lose weight to make him happy. People flirt with him in front of me, assuming I am some friend because there is no way a thin man would choose such a big woman.
And I’ve been in recovery from an eating disorder for almost three years now, so I’ve dealt with my own negativity. I’ve had a lot of my own issues with my body, without all of this being added.
I’ve asked him a million times if I’d be happier if I was thinner. And on my bad days I picture that gorgeous girl he “deserves”.
But he loves me. My size is just a fact about me. It doesn’t matter.
If someone thinks you’re “too thin” or “too big” or “too muscular” or “not muscular enough” or “too tattooed” or absolutely anything, then that is their problem. It is not your job to adjust to what someone else wants you to be. Because you will find someone who loves even the things you hate about yourself.
I am a big girl who loves a skinny boy, and I wouldn’t change a thing about either of us.

You are gorgeous, and you aren’t even that big, so people should just go and fuck themselves with a chainsaw, because even if you were, it doesn’t matter c:
