Emma had always okay with her body, she accepted it. One day, she was feeling very confident so she posted a picture of herself.
im not hungry
The next day at school, Olivia and her friends went around showing everyone her post and saying she looked fat and ugly. It went all around the school and soon enough, Emma heard the whispers and gossip.
Emma couldn’t believe that they could be that mean and burst into tears. Everyone looked at her and whispered and gossiped about her. She started to believe she was fat and ugly. She tried eating healthier and worked out but she was impatient and it wasn’t working fast enough.
im so sorry!!
Emma could handle it anymore so she resorted to starving herself. She refused to eat anything, she’d always tell her parents she wasn’t hungry when dinner came around. She didn’t eat her lunch or breakfast. She started to become very pale and sick. She couldn’t focus in class so her grades started to drop.
Her parents became very worried about her so they got her to talk to the school Councillor. Eventually Emma opened up to her about everything. The school Councillor gave her ways to deal with all the gossip and told her it was important to eat and there was other ways to lose weight. Emma took her advice and started to eat again.
She ignored Olivia and her snarky comments and Olivia eventually apologized and left her alone. Emma was in a much better place, she had even made a new friend.
