All my life. . .

  • I have never been what you call 'thin' or 'skinny' by asian standard.
  • So really, you can stop telling me I'm fat or I have big butts or that my midsection is soft and jiggly.
  • Believe me. I know that already. And I'm sick and tired of people telling me what I already know. I'm 33 and never been thin. Thank you very much.

  • Sometime. My heart is fragile. Sometime.

Oh, honey! If someone is telling you that, they are so wrong! I know, I have a fragile heart too, and sometimes it gets so sad with comments like that! This is a beautiful page, but it breaks my heart for you. (((hugs)))

i think beauty flows from the inside out, and you are a beautiful person.

Trying to think of what to say. And all I can come up with is that I have learned that when I am feeling fragile, and words or actions of others hurt me, I turn it into a positive. Or a life lesson. It's not always easy, but it helps me heal and move on.
For the record I think you are beautiful :)

You are beautiful. And so is your layout.
Love xoxo Janna

Beautiful layout, Sasha. Love the way you are using your real life to inspire your work. There is a lot to be said for the old saying " if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything."

Diana Waite said...

YOU are AMAZING! Don't let anyone else try to "sell" you something different! What a powerful layout--it's gorgeous.

Brenda Weaver said...

I don't know who has been telling you that, but I think they're wrong! I've always thought you look beautiful. Don't let anyone get you down. I hurts to hear negative comments. I'm sorry your heart has been hurt! Beautiful page!

You know what girl, if someone is telling you that they dont deserve you in their life. I have never seen you in the flesh but i know you are beautiful ... great layout :) x

Shonie said...

So I just looked through your past posts looking for photos with you in them. I'm sorry but you're so not fat! So your not super skinny but who cares? You look just fine! I understand it's hard if you're near skinny people a lot. I truely am overweight due to an illness that I can't control. I used to be normal, at times thin. I do find it hard to be near all of my skinny friends. Then I realized that I'm healthier than a lot of them and that I'm still the same person! Dont let anyone tell you your fat. It just isn't true!

For a start, I wish I would have your figure because to me you have a perfectly shaped body (and I mean that in a non-stalker way...lol).
I can't believe there are actually people out there who WOULD say that to someone - I am sorry they hurt you but trust me Karma will get them back one way or the other.
You are a gorgeous woman with a gorgeous family, you don't need to change anything!
Lots of love'n'glitter xoxo

NinaSt said...

I love your layout! Your style is amazing. And please don´t listen to other people, you´re a very beautiful lady and you´re definetely not fat! Who wants to be thin like Kate Moss? No one!

Sarah Webb said...

Sigh.

Keshet said...

Who would EVER say such a thing? Gee whiz, people are just not nice sometimes. You have never looked anything but beautiful to me.

Carla said...

awww...come here and give me a hug! Its sad that someone could be so cruel! :( You are beautiful inside and out my friend. Hugs!!!

amsyah said...

spiteful words are tough, but hang in there. show them what a beautiful heart that you are :D

Zarah said...

Okay, this post p***es me off SO badly! Do people seriously say these things to you? Send them my way. I'll teach them some manners!!

First of all: that's just something you don't say. You just don't.
Second of all: it's not even true!! You are womanly, yes. You have curves, yes, thank goodness! You are gorgeous!
You are NOT by any means fat - and even if you were it wouldn't be their business!

GAH people make me angry!

My sweet friend: henever ANYONE says anything to make you sad, remember that people only try to put you down because they see you as superior to them. ...and they're right, too.

You are amazing. So is this layout, by the way.
LOTS of love, and strengthening hugs!!

Zarah said...

(I so wish I could press like on the comments here, like on FB - because the ever clever & sweet Kim Sonksen is SO spot on...!! :D)

Helen Tilbury said...

Aaaah Sasha! This made me sad!! It is a beautiful layout but I'm sorry you are feeling fragile on the topic of weight. You are an outstanding cook & I can see that you do a great job enjoying caring for your family & I wouldn't worry about what anyone else says because at the end of the day skinniness is just boring unless it is easy to achieve (which, lucky for some, it is!) I have hyperinsulaneamia so I just can't get skinny or anywhere near skinny at all but I still love my life!!

You are perfect and beautiful...just as you are xxx

WillieburgScrapper said...

Love the layout- LOVE IT!!! I will never understand people's need to "inform" me on my current weight status either- as if I couldn't look in the mirror! Plus the standards are so out of whack I was fat at 135 pounds so excuse me if I care very little about those standards now. I have better things to do! Love how you can get right to the point in your writing. It's incredibly refreshing.

Brenda Roggeveen said...

Love you and your beautiful creations!

Sara said...

{{BIG HUGS!!}} Just ignore people, they aren't worth it. If it makes you feel any better, I get asked "When's the baby due?"...I tell em it's a souvenior. Beautiful LO!

Marti said...

Your LO is beautiful, Sasha. You are beautiful! (((HUGS)))

Vanessa said...

You are beautiful..your layout is beautiful!!! I used to have a aunt that had no problem in mentioning the status of my weight when I ever I saw her..where she got off doing that I have no idea!!

Denise said...

Sasha, when I see photos of you I always see such a beautiful woman.

jamie long said...

LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE IT! So special.

Jessica said...

Beautiful layout & therapy!! And yes people don't have to say those things. I don't even understand why they would. Makes no sense!

AnilĂș Magloire said...

I feel your pain... But, I have learned to LOVE me just the way I am and you are gorgeous inside AND out. Word.

Patricia said...

That's the story of my life... It's just plain rude. Beautiful layout!

Kim said...

Sasha...don't let anyone break you down. You are who you are, and you are HAPPY! Don't change for anyone...give yourself a hug from me!

Diana said...

You are beautiful Sasha. Outside AND in. By any standard.
When you turn 40 NONE of what anyone else thinks will matter.
I know, it happened to me and it was SOOOOO liberating!

Melonie said...

You are beautiful by any standards:)

Donna said...
