I think to myself that I’m “ugly” and “fat” (words that I would never even think or say about someone else) hundreds and hundreds of times every single day.
When it comes to words like “ugly” and “fat”, they literally seem worse & more evil than any swear word, or anything.
I had a therapist a few years ago that said, “Mariah, how long would you be friends with someone who followed you around all day and said how ugly and fat you are?”
I kind of laughed, and said, “Well, obviously I wouldn’t be friend with them.”
He replied, “Mariah, that’s what you’re doing to yourself.”
I started sobbing. I had literally never thought about it that way before.
