are you alright
My heart ^_^
It’s moments like this, scenes like this, that make me forever loyal to this show, whatever other shit it might throw at us.
Because I can’t imagine any girl, any PERSON, not relating to this. You start out thinking you can do anything, be anything, and then people start to wear you down with words, telling you, “Actually, you can’t, because you’re too fat, you’re too young, you don’t look right, you don’t fit in.” And you retreat a little further into your shell until the only parts of you that are visible are the ones that haven’t been worn away by their words.

I love how in Jurassic Park everyone always seems so shocked when the dinosaurs start attacking people like u went to an island full of dinosaurs idk what your expectations were mate but that’s pretty much standard dinosaur behaviour
"The universe is big, it’s vast and complicated and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely… impossible things just happen, and we call them miracles.”
Rae: “I just can’t eat in front of people.”
Stacey: “Why not?”
Rae: “Well, because, if I eat unhealthy food, then people will think ‘Oh, look at that fat cow. No wonder she got to that size,’ and if I eat healthy food, then they think ‘Well, who’re you trying to kid, love? You didn’t get to that size by eating salads.’”The fat experience in a nutshell. Bloody hell, My Mad Fat Diary is brilliant.
I once had a nurse practitioner say the exact same thing as the last gif.They hit the nail on the head every single time.
This is the most successful gifset that has come up from the show. Look at the notes, is crazy!
It’s bittersweet moment, a triumph for this amazing show but the sad reflection of society’s double standards.
Thankful for this.
This actually hurt me
