I recently went out to dinner with some of my old high school friends. Many I haven’t seen in years but somehow through Face book we all met up again and decided to go to dinner for a mini type of reunion.
I am overweight and one of the other women who is also overweight made the comment, in front of everyone at the table that she didn’t feel that bad anymore after seeing that I was heavier than her since in high school she was always heavier than me.
I didn’t say anything but inside I was very hurt. I feel bad about my weight gain as it is…and then to have her say that in front of people I haven’t seen in years made me want to crawl in a hole.
These ladies plan on getting together now on a regular basis… should I say something to this woman or just ignore it. I want to see the other women but I know she’ll be part of the mix and I don’t know what other inconsiderate remark will come out of her mouth next.
What should I do.

No doubt about it…her comment was inconsiderate and tactless. She’s probably a very insecure person. If and when you see her again I don’t think it would be at all out of line for you to tell her how hurtful her comment was.
If you are truly afraid of what will come out of her mouth next then you better nip her in the bud.
Thanks for writing!
