Why Is It That Fat People Are Treated Differently; Than Thin People?
"Why Is It That Fat People Are Treated Differently; Than Thin People?
It's really sad that the people in this world think that thin is in; and fat is not. Being a fat person in this world is like being curse with a contagious disease. Fat people has been around since the beginning of time, because the bible even stated that there's nothing new under the sun, that every thing that going on now,was going on then. I've met people that was obese that complained about how people treated them, compared to some skinny or thin and in good shape. People that are over weight are constantly bullied and called names associated with animals like cows, hippos, buffaloes and anything else they can throw at them. It's sad that people with a weight problem has to deal such negative connotations from people that's smaller than they are.
Most people aren't aware that many of over weight people suffer from some form of emotional problem,like depression,and nervous or compulsive eating disorders that cause weight gain. Obese people need physical as well as mental help,because they need help with finding out what problem is and trying to fix it and start losing the excess weight and get healthier. I guess thin people are blessed to be thin; unless they have a eating disorder that cause them to have bulimia or anorexia, in this case, these disorders can sometimes be deadly if not taken care of. None of us know the pain and ridicule obese people go through by being judged because of their weight. People that has q weight problem feel like outcast or they feel that they don't belong in this world of thin minded people. Obese people have very low self esteem and self worth; they don't feel they deserve to be happy or have good things in their lives, all because of their weight problem.
Most people with weight problems,try to hide behind big clothes, so people can't see their real weight but are deceived; because big or large clothes makes them look larger. If only people would just accept these people as the human beings that they are, instead of treating them a contagious disease; it would make such a great difference in the lives of these obese people, that have a weight problem. We should try lifting them up instead of putting them down about their weight every chance we get. Obese people be they big or fat, but the truth is they have a heart and they have feelings just like we do. The best thing we can do for some one obese, is to give them encouragement and support them and treat them like normal human beings and look at them as a person and not their weight, in doing this, will help them to start feeling normal again.
Instead of judging and pointing our fingers, lets gives these people some ideas to help themselves. Our actions of help will at lease show them that we genuinely care about them as a person.
