She and I were discussing what the last words my grandma uttered to me about 6 months before she died,"wow,you sure are FAT!"
She tells me,oh she didn't mean it,but just before that she was praising her other 2 granddaughters,telling them how beautiful they were,how proud she was.
I told my mom,whatever,she was a mean old bitch to me my whole life,and that I wasn't going to let her get to me. That I had confidence that I was a beautiful woman.
My mom looked at me with this "are you kidding?" face
I say what,you don't think i'm beautiful? She stammers, "well......I think both my girls are pretty..."
Well,I'm soooo sorry that I'm not 100 lbs with bleached blonde hair and have a year round tan or something.
I could have a horn growing out of my forehead and have 1 eye and my mom should tell me i'm the most beautiful daughter in the world.
And people wonder why girls have such body issues. Apparently if you don't fit into this impossible mold,the world looks at you like you're nothing.
I just never expected to have my mom see me this way...
