Fat Pig - May 28th 2013, 12:51 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Okay. My family compares me and my sister, she is [EDITED] pounds and I am [EDITED] pounds. We have different builds, I'm more muscular. And she calls me hurtful names like 'fat pig' 'elephant' Even my mom agrees with her sometimes. I don't know what to do other than starve myself so I can be perfect. Sorry I had to take my frustrations out

Hey there,

You don't have to starve yourself in order to compare with your sister. I know exactly how it can be with being compared constantly with your siblings. I'm a twin, so basically, it's an automatic for everybody to compare our bodies, grades, personalities CONSTANTLY. But this doesn't define who you are, YOU DO. You define you, you define your self-image, and its not their place to tell you how you should feel and look.

Could you talk to your sister about not calling you these names? Your mother also should not be agreeing. Talk to them about it. Nobody deserves to be bullied like that, particularly by members of their family. They might think that it's funny, it may even mean to be a joke, but let them know that regardless of their intention it is hurtful. They should understand.

Good luck.

Let me know how everything works out! And it's no problem! You're not in trouble. Weight numbers are just not allowed as they can be triggering for some users.
