I’m currently in a bit of a bad place as to energy and whatnot and while I have many things I want to write about, both here and on my WoW blog not much is happening. Hopefully I can pull myself together soon and get some of my posts out. In the meanwhile, I really wanted to share this video of a news anchor in a local news channel in the US, who is responding to an e-mail from a viewer.
She manages to turn the very condescending e-mail into something good.
I think few people realise that overweight people go through things like this every day. The “well-meaning” people who just want “our best”. Truth is, any overweight person is keenly aware of their state, make no mistake about it. The intended “well-meaning” usually comes off as nothing other than an attempt to make you feel worse about yourself. It’s not as if overweight people don’t know every single trick in the book about losing weight. Thing is, it’s just not that simple.
But I won’t start a big discussion about that. At least not today. Instead, I leave you with this eloquent answer from the news anchor.
