Emotional intelligence is a skill that is often lacking these days everywhere which can be problematic in this shallow and superficial digital world, especially for the younger folks.

Being fat has to be one of the worst things....  once i was maybe 10 kgs overweight, and it took YEARS to somehow lose it for good.  Not eating, eating a little, exercise every day, nothing seemed to work.....i forget how it came off, maybe some Vitamin B something and a mix of other exercises.  my point...i was insecure for about a year, felt bad when someone saw me and i felt fat.  i could run 20 kms but who cares, i felt fat.  it was depressing, because some days i felt strong.  but every time i saw someone skinny i felt horrible.  really a mental disorder.  i would talk about it openly, and nobody cared because i wasn't "fat".  i can only imagine if i was really fat.  

 

look, love yourself first.  always work on your brain, get smarter.  always.  always exercise in a way you enjoy.  if you don't love yourself, you are doomed.  then you will doom others.  can't move forward if you aren't happy with you.

 

suicide is a common thought.  fat, no money, not smart enough, not successful enough, etc...  so HAVE A GOAL.  Then you have something to live for.  doesn't matter what the goal is.....  lose 10 kg in a year, who cares.  collect stamps, whatever.  something you enjoy and it's who you are.  walk every night, or whatever.  

 

of course, i don't really remember what years i was insecure about my weight.  was it 10-years ago?  see....  what was such a big problem before is now forgotten.  not totally, but our mind is good at blocking these things out.

slimming down wasn't an option I suppose.

For some, showing some empathy does not seem an option either.

Some try hard to do just that by getting fat too.

I've been told by a few 'seasoned expats' that Thais aren't a sensitive PC bunch. They don't mind being teased about being fat. They find it funny. 

 

I knew it already, but obviously this isn't true. RIP to the young girl.
