Rachel had been excited to spend time with her friend, who was visiting her for the week. They decided to go to the pool, and Rachel’s friend brought a few bathing suits, asking for Rachel’s opinion on them.

Medication Changes

Rachel’s friend had been on antidepressants for the past two years, causing her to gain weight. She used to be very slim and skinny like Rachel, but the medication had completely changed her body composition. Rachel’s friend kept saying that she looked too fat in the bikini and might wear the one-piece instead. Rachel thought the one-piece looked better but didn’t say anything because it was up to her friend.

An Opinion

Her friend modeled both bathing suits for Rachel and asked for her opinion. All Rachel said was, “I like the one-piece better!” Her friend then asked if Rachel thought she looked fat in the bikini, and Rachel said no, she just liked the other one better.

Rachel’s friend became triggered and started accusing Rachel of thinking she was fat. Rachel told her to wear whatever she wanted and to “go away.” Her friend put on the one-piece but kept making snarky comments about how Rachel thought she was fat.

Rachel tried to ignore her, but her friend kept taunting her with comments, so Rachel snapped and said, “Yeah, you shouldn’t wear a bikini because it doesn’t look good on you. Happy now? Is that what you wanted me to say so badly?”

She Lied

Her friend packed her bags and left, and Rachel hadn’t heard from her since. Rachel’s mutual friend, Allie, told her that her friend was safe and had rebooked her flight. However, Allie also told Rachel that her friend had said that Rachel had called her fat.

Rachel was hurt by her friend’s reaction and felt like she couldn’t win. She had tried to be supportive and give her honest opinion, but her friend had taken it the wrong way. Rachel realized that her friend’s weight gain was a sensitive topic and that she should have been more mindful of her friend’s feelings.

Another person commented, “Also it was a loaded question, whatever OP said was going to be the wrong answer. If she said the bikini was better and she didn’t look fat, her friend would say she’s lying and trying to make her look bad. The bottom line is thar she was looking for a fight and it had to do with her own insecurities especially looking at her former slim self in OP.”
