Alice had suffered in the hands of her mates right from the middle school, and it continued in high school also. Her nickname was 'cholera' and they called her a pig. Every one avoided her like she is a trash, she suffered greatly and cried alone. Why did they hate her so much? Because she is so big. Every one makes jest of her, they called her fatty, they called a pig, they called a glutton, and all sorts of ridiculous names.
That's who she really is, everyone cannot be of the same size or stature. Alice endured the pain and humiliation alone. Then she began to starve herself, she only eat a very little quantity of food that will not allow her to die. Anytime she finds her self eating more than she wants, she dibs her hand in her throat and vomit everything out. She lived like that for years, she worked so hard to maintain a very thin stature, she became so thin that other ladies became jealous of her, no matter how much effort they put on dieting, they are not able to maintain her type of shape and size.
Alice began working in a fashion company, she worked so hard that she was promoted to the post of assistant director. Even with her achievement so far, people didn't stop talking about her everywhere she goes, people keeps gossiping about her "why is she so thin? "Gosh! She so thin, I cannot marry" "hey look at that skinny lady" different gibberish about her continues so she remains depressed, she continued starving herself, she hardly eat or never eat anything. She thought of nothing else than to commit suicide. She decided to end her life, that way, she will stop hearing people's comment and mockery about her again.
There comes another worker in her company, she was so big like alice when she was young, but she didn't mind what others were saying about her. She eats alot, biscuits, chocolates, ice cream, cakes and other sugary things, including proper meals too. Her manager always shout at her for eating everything time that she is so fat. Although she was not happy with the way people ridiculed and mocked her, she never thought of commiting suicide like Alice.
This is just a short narration out of the series I find myself watching recently. If It gets to a point in someone's life where he or she attempts to commit suicide, then it has to do with the people around her. Our tongue is very powerful in destroying a person's life when it comes to negative comments about the person. Some people have no better job than to accuse other people's behavior or style of living, they find fault in everyone, they jugde people's behavior and attitude, their life, their family, their stature, their dressing and everything about them. These people are so emotional that they become traumatized because of these negative statements about them, to the point that they wish they are dead.
Likewise, as humans, people will always find fault in what we do, it's left to us whether we will allow these words to affect us negatively or not. I know it's hard to ignore those painful words but we just have to forget and be ourselves. If Alice had lived her life the way she wants then, not minding the way her mates were mocking her, then she would have overcomed what she is now experiencing now.
We should only live for ourself, not minding people's comments about us. They've got their life to live and we have to live ours also. It's a free world.
