Nowadays, we hear about online badgering, internet trolls and cyberbullying at a pace that we cannot keep up with. After all, hiding behind the screen while offending people is much easier than choosing to say rude things to strangers in their faces. While online bullying is an increasing epidemic, it doesn’t mean that face-to-face trolls and in this case, body-shamers stopped existing. They are out there, and this story highlights exactly that.
A Powerful Message
An Ohio mom decided to share her story on social media after she was told off by a stranger at the grocery store because of what she was wearing. The young mom of two had no idea that a quick and meaningless walk to the store would become one of the hardest experiences of her life.
However, she decided to take that experience and transform it into a powerful message for other women who might have gone through the same, or could encounter a similar confrontation in the future.
