Shauna Arocho, a woman who has been on an inspiring weight loss journey, decided to enjoy the sunshine and go with her husband to grab a cone at Dairy Queen on free ice cream day.
She’s lost about 120 pounds overall, which is incredible, but she almost lost her motivation after what happened when they went for that cone.
She took to Facebook in an emotional video that relays an important message:
I’m with her in that I’ve never understood what people get out of that. Are they insecure? Raised by rabid badgers and harboring resentment towards the average human?
Bullying in any form with kids or adults is painful and harmful and can have tragic results.
With that said, her post has been shared almost 100,000 times in only two days, with people flooding her page with comments of support.
And let’s be clear it’s amazing that she’s lost weight and continues on that journey, but it shouldn’t matter what she looks like. She could be 290 pounds or 90 pounds and no one has the right to say anything about how she looks.
Thankfully she was able to turn it into a positive experience and hopefully remind people that words really do hurt.
She posted a follow-up video thanking everyone for their support.
