How to talk to a family member about their weight
As thanksgiving draws close this year, I'd like ot take time to highlight an article I had the privalege to write for Al dot com last year. The sentiment still rings true for 2020.
"Well-meaning friends and family always want to encourage and uplift one another with comments like, “You look beautiful,” “Your hair is so cute today,” “Your skin looks so good. You have to share your nighttime routine with me,” or “You look good. You must’ve lost weight.”
These compliments aren’t wrong. They aren’t inherently bad. But, what if, this holiday season we could change it up? What if instead of focusing on our loved ones’ physical attributes, we got more creative?"
