hoeeeeees= no respect.
I started a Novena for my grampa. I am on my 6th day.
I’ve received peace and am starting to accept the fact that he is really not around anymore. It HURTS, but I’m accepting it. This is a time of mourning for me, so I have made it a point to not go “have fun” until after some time has passed… out of respect for him. My girls have suggested going places they’re used to going, but I’ve said no, and I’ve explained why. Even though my daughters weren’t very attached to my grandpa, they respect my grief. After all, they know that all the “fun” stuff will be there when I’m ready.
I love my daughters and my husband… they give me strength. Because of them, I’ve been able to smile and even laugh even though I’m hurting inside.
You should respect each other and refrain from disputes; you should not, like water and oil, repel each other, but should, like milk and water, mingle together.
It is none of my damn business if a random 400-pound (or 150-pound, or 90-pound) woman is healthy or not. Just as it’s none of my business how much money she makes or how her sex life is going. Health is private. Period.
What I do believe – and what I feel perfectly qualified to proclaim from the rooftops - is that every woman at every weight, shape, and size deserves to be treated with respect, deserves to feel loved, deserves to make her own decisions about her own body. Every woman at every weight, shape, and size deserves to have a fabulous time exploring her personal style and honing her unique look. Every woman at every weight, shape, and size can define health for herself. And, above all, every woman at every weight, shape, and size deserves to be happy. Every woman at every weight, shape, and size CAN be happy. And anyone who claims that happiness is contingent on weight is foolish and misguided, prejudiced and small-minded.
I’m not interested in quantifying the health of other women. I’m not qualified to make decrees about the health of other women. But I’m making it my life’s work to make sure that other women are happy. Happy with their lives, their bodies, their very existences.
Because happiness trumps everything, and we all deserve a piece of it. ALL of us. Including you.
