Overcoming Self-Cruelty

Updated: Sep 4, 2019

Would you say any of these things to your best and closest friend?

You are too fat and old.

Nothing fits you right or Nothing looks good on you.

Your nose is too long/short/wide, you must have the bad nose in the family.

Your thighs rub together when your walk, that’s gross.

You don’t deserve that.

Look at you stuffing cake in your face like a common field cow.

Your ankles are “cankles.”

Your underarms flab harder than a goose in flight.

You can’t do that, you’re too old and will likely a hip and look a fool.

You don’t want your picture taken because you look horribly fat today.

Your hair is always so unruly.

WOW! Can you imagine the look on your friend’s face if you said any of these to her?


I hope she would think you were in need of immediate help or perhaps smack you back into your old kind self.
