I’ve always had a conflicting relationship with my body. Starting from the very first time when I was called fat by a classmate. I was 10, I wasn’t fat, and I didn’t really know what fat meant, it wasn’t a concept for me. At that minute I just learnt that fat means ugly and only skinny is beautiful.
