Opinions are like assholes – everyone has one. The thing is not everyone wants to see or hear your opinions, especially negative ones.
The world is negative enough.
Recently, Selena Gomez‘s Mom, Mandy Teefey, took part in a photoshoot for Entrepreneur magazine, to announce Wondermind. And some people in the world seemed to have a lot to say that wasn’t necessary.
“I wasn’t ever going to discuss this, but I knew when the Entrepreneur cover came out comments on my weight were going to be DM’d to me. I just posted a polite offer instead of the name calling,” she said on Instagram, along with a screenshot of someone offering to help her loose weight.
First people – no ones size is ever your business. It’s not for you to comment on, to speak to, or to offer assistance with. If someone asks you specifically for help with their weight, then that is a different matter.
“But, I was out of the hospital for maybe 3 1/2 weeks from double pneumonia. I was told I had days to live,” Mandy explained in her copy on the post. “I had miracle Drs and love from my family and friends to keep me going. I fought. The Drs fought and I was one of the few who made it out. I gained 60lbs plus inflammation from the infection.”
“I never gave up on myself or Wondermind coming to reality. I had zero business to be at a photo shoot,” Mandy continued on her post. “So, yesterday was a beautiful day for many reasons filled with personal attacks. I’m healthy and I will work on myself at my pace. It’s a miracle I am here and could careless if that means I’m a 16 instead of an 8. Much love to everyone. Let’s Wondermind!!! XO picture one was two days to live, picture two the day I was released.”
People, keep your mean and unecessary comments to yourself. Life is too short to be anything but kind.
