To the girl who passed by when I was taking a picture of my profile in the mirror at the gym and laughed while looking at me with that terrible up and down glance: I'm glad I was amusing to you, and you are real rude.
It was only my second day going to the gym this semester, and I've decided to work at it more in regards to exercising and keeping my body healthy. Laughter at the expense of other people's self confidence and is something no one should ever do, and especially not women to eachother. We need to all be friendly and nonjudgmental of others.
I didn't see it as something discouraging. Obviously, I'm going to go back to the gym. I'm not gonna let some girl with an opinion break me this fast. Honestly though, it might have in the past. I would've been distracted because of it, or start thinking everyone at the gym looks at me that way. But not this time, because I know this is a pretty incredible body that can do some pretty cool things. It's a pretty big victory for me.
Side note: Again, only my second day at the gym this semester, but I'm already a fierce advocate for people to WIPE 👏 DOWN 👏 THE 👏 MACHINE 👏 WHEN 👏 THEY'RE 👏 DONE.
