I've been feeling pretty good about myself lately. No, I'm not getting a big head or anything, I'm just excited about some of the changes going on with me. Getting out of my comfort zone, I'm feeling healthy and until the other day thinking I was looking good.
Before a Pilaties class I was visiting with another woman. She was complaining about having to go to her yearly physical and telling me that she was "just going to tell the doctor that she's never going to be thin." Then she paused, looks at me and says "and neither are you". Ouch. ouch. ouch. I just stood there not saying anything in shock. Thankfully class started right after.
Since that happened I'm feeling like I must look like a big ol' blob of goo.
I've been reflecting on this and wondering why some nasty woman's comment is affecting me so much. I still haven't figured it out. So, what's your opinion? Why is it so easy to get derailed by mean spirited words? Has this happened to you? How did you handle it?
