The relationships nowadays are getting more and more abusive and one doesn’t even realize it until the very end.
This was exactly what happened with Shelby Johnson who recently made it out of an abusive relationship, thanks to the internet’s help! Shelby was always being underweight since her childhood so when she finally managed to attain a healthy 120lbs weight, she considered it not less than a victory for her. But her boyfriend was thinking otherwise!
He bizarrely criticized her for being overweight with a weird argument about her gut sticking out more than his. Because, apparently, a “beer gut” looks fine on a man as compared to a woman.
After receiving horrifying texts from her so-called beloved, Shelby took to Twitter for advice and shared his body shaming messages with everyone. “Am I overreacting for feeling hurt by this? I’m at a loss and just can’t even comprehend how someone who claims to love me can say this,” she wrote.
My journey of my body has been long. In highschool I was 80-90 and my doctors never figured out why I couldn’t keep on weight. At 20, I started gaining. When i did, I never felt happier and more healthy. I worked hard for this body. I am 120 pounds of pure growth. pic.twitter.com/vyLGUuT0fu
