Story 82

When I was about 20 years old, my mum asked how much I weighed. I told her 56kg. She responded by saying “well when I was your age I was only 53kg.” Before she said the comment I didn’t think much of my weight and (rightly so) thought I was pretty thin but afterwards I immediately felt like I had done something wrong and somehow failed. Every time I step on the scale the comment plays through my mind.
