Other People’s Body Sizes

I have a friend from high school who has lost weight and people are saying that she’s anorexic. And another friend said, ‘It kinda pisses me off, I mean, if she thinks she’s fat, then what does she think about us?’

But the thing is, when someone has an ED it’s not about other people’s body sizes. It’s about the perception that you have of yourself. Just because I happen to be __ kg lighter than you, does not mean I think you’re fat!

It’s hard to explain to someone who doesn’t have an ED though. So instead of trying to explain, I didn’t bother :/
