I have a great body, and it sometimes makes me feel like a know-nothing jackass. I have never thought of killing myself or self-harming. I hardly gain a pound after eating a ton, and I can lose weight much easier than most people. I truly am completely content with how I look. But then I look around at all these other girls cutting themselves or starving just to be like me. I was BORN with this, and I’ll most likely never have to work hard to keep it. So how am I supposed to help and comfort my friends when I can’t relate to them? I can never say “I know how you feel” because I don’t. I was given the great gift of a wonderful body, but it really should have been given to someone who REALLY REALLY wanted it. I feel like I’ve been given something I don’t deserve, and there is no way for me to share it. I look good, but it’s just my good looks that make me pointless. No one trusts me. I’ve been asked if I’ve ever been anorexic. They all just assume I’m some kind of slut with a superiority complex. None of the nice guys talk to me because they just assume I’m out of their league. I was just born this way, and there’s nothing I can do about it.

What I want is a body that fits ME.

    I have the same body. I’ve had the same type of friends. I can relate to YOU. I’m not saying, that guys don’t talk to me based on my looks. If you are friendly and welcoming, they will talk to you. You might have to talk to them first, but it’ll happen, don’t worry. As for your friends and the people around you, you can’t help it. And it’s true. You can’t relate to them. You don’t know what it’s like to want to have someone else’s body and hate your own. You don’t know what it’s like to walk into a place, or school, and see the girl skinnier than you and get self-conscious. I don’t know what that is like either. You can’t relate to them on that level, that’s the truth. What you can do, what I can do, is be compassionate. What people really need, is love. It sounds lame, but that’s the honest truth. You can’t relate to everyone, but you can show love towards everyone. Smiling and saying hello, seeing the good in people and loving them for it. A body is a body and it would be wonderful if everyone could be blissfully content with the fact that at least they have one. Everyone thinks differently though, people have been brought up different, people get influenced by different things. The one thing in this world that is universal, is love. Kindness, friendliness, compassion. Don’t give them an experience to relate to, because you can’t. Other people will have to give them that. Give them what you can though, which might only be a smile and a welcoming heart. Right now that might not be all they need, but in the end it’s all we’ll care about. In the end, it’s all that’s really going to matter.
