Response to A Plus-Size Woman Decided To Buy A Tank Top After She Heard Other Shoppers Mocking Its Size:
I never would have bought the shirt. I have severe anxiety and once I hear something negative about how an item of clothing looks, that’s usually it for me. I had a severely pessimistic grandmother who always had something negative to say about my clothing for the majority of my life so it’s very difficult for me, personally, to overcome that. And let’s be honest here, this is a teenager making the comment. We’ve all been there and know what she most likely meant. I have an 8 year old step daughter and whenever she makes comments like that I make sure she understands how it can hurt the feelings of others. It’s called teaching your child manners because later in life, they are going to need them to get ahead in life.
