MUST YOU BODY SHAME?
Every being is unique in its own, our differences is what spices up the planet. All of us cannot be the same, I can’t be as tall as you are, all of us can’t be skinny
some of us are meant to be short while some are meant to be tall
flash back to 2018, It was my first time in the hospital on IT, my boss was showing me around my new place of work for the next 8 months, I was excited. fast forward to 2 weeks later, I happened to be the only person on sit this fateful day, my boss went for a board meeting and said I should attend to the patient’s needs. so this lady came in with her prescription and receipt, she said “omo yii ibo ni aWon to n ta ogun wa” (this girl, where are the pharmacists). and i replied awa niii (this is us). she was like, I meant the pharmacists, I still repeated same response.
to cut the long story short, she refused me to attend to her, until one of my boss came. I felt really uneasy and angry. funny enough when my boss came, the lady said that my boss should stop leaving her kids at the office, that statement made my boss angry and my boss said I should attend to her.
On collecting her card I found out that I was even older than her, my offence was that she was taller and bigger than I was. lots of patient has refused me tend to their needs because they thought I am too small to do that due to my height. Sometimes I feel there should be drugs for making someone tall, I once did a research looking for such drug.
Our society is not helping us at all, I had passion for modelling but because am short and fat it’s a no for me. I would have loved to be a naval officer but because I was short and do not have the required height I was denied.
Body shamming people is a bad thing to do. A person shouldn’t be judged by his or her height…..
