I am a very skinny boy since my childhood. My friends used to call me names for being weak. I used to hate it. Leave friends, my own family members used to tease me for the same, at times. I used to feel so different from others at that time.
If you ask me, how I coped with this, well a point came when I stopped caring about what people had to say. I just didn’t care. In many ways, my life and feelings changed after that.
Recently, I made an analysis of myself. I found out using BMI that I’m 16 kilograms underweight. I’ve started eating well, I’ve started exercising a little. And yes, now I don’t care about people who are body shaming me!
