On 26th of June it was my birthday. It has been such a wonderful day, I spent it with my boyfriend who made me feel loved.
I received a call from home once I sent my parents the picture above. It was my mum.
“Happy birthday! Hope you are having fun! Anyway, you should lose some kilos”. It is always like that. I should lose more kilos.
My dad says I’m a whale. He told me on my graduation day that “if you don’t lose weight I’ll kill you”. He said that obviously I’m back weighting 94 kilos, but that is not true, as I still fit in my clothes.
Surely my parents are responsible for me growing up not liking my body, on top of my trauma.
I hope one day I will learn to accept myself as I am.
