Being overweight has taught me to be more compassionate toward those struggling with obesity and addiction. It has taught me to be happy with myself, no matter what I look like.

There are many things I want to be in life. One goal that has eluded me is to be a healthy weight. I have been overweight since childhood. Strange as it may sound, I am actually grateful for this. Being overweight has taught me to be more compassionate toward those struggling with obesity and addiction. It has taught me to be happy with myself, no matter what I look like. I have learned that success in life isn't connected to beauty and image but strength of character. I carry all of this with me along with the knowledge that one day I WILL be healthy and beautiful. Because of this fact I am not haunted by the cruel things that others have said or I believed they were thinking about me. But beauty does have power. And so when I reach my goal I hope to help others learn these same lessons.
