"I feel so fat today." "Today is a fat day."
Some times when this is okay to say:
- When you are experiencing your body and its fat.
Some times when this is NOT okay to say:
- When you feel lazy.
- When you feel like you can’t do anything correctly.
- When you feel stupid.
- When you feel ugly.
- When you feel useless.
Those feelings are very valid, and should be recognized. However, using “fat,” as a synonym for those words/feelings is hurtful and degrading. In addition, it may stop you from recognizing how you really feel, so you’re not helping yourself either!
