Lashing out against others trying to improve their lives or their bodies is not going to help anyone, including yourself. Being cruel and saying ugly things doesn’t make you stronger or better than the people you tear down. We all want the same things out of life: to be happy and love who we see when we look into a mirror.
If you are feeling sad or lonely, send someone a message and say, “Hi.” You will make more friends being respectful and honest. Being cruel or snobbish just pushes others away. Sure, we might all have a tingling of jealousy if we find someone’s page who has lost the amount of weight we are aiming towards, or who has the butt or legs we dream of having, but ask yourself…
What does anyone gain from sending a hateful message filled with bile and insults? Does it really make you feel better after you hit “send?” Instead, ask that person how they achieved their goals, what inspired them or what exercises they did to tone those specific areas. Don’t send a message saying, “yeah, well you’re still fat!”
We all deal with enough negativity in our lives. This place should be a safe and loving haven for everyone. To put it simply, don’t be a jerk.
