I was recently publicly body-shamed or perhaps it was a critique that felt shaming to me. It felt humiliating and uncomfortable AF. Given the setting, I said nothing in response. The worse part for me is that it came from another woman. Regardless of who said it, I would have been triggered.

As I processed this shame over the last several days, a very wise woman reminded me of the above ? quote. It stopped any remaining shame in its tracks. I’m sharing this vulnerable story in hopes it helps someone else. ???
