Emily had been dealing with her husband’s passive-aggressive comments about her body for months since having their son. He would make “observations” about her appearance, such as commenting on her waist or the way a top fit her. Emily found these comments hurtful and tried to ignore them, but they continued and even happened in front of friends and family.

She’d Had ENOUGH

During a Christmas celebration at her husband’s family’s home, Emily’s sister-in-law complimented her floral maxi dress, and her husband agreed, but then added that her waist could be smaller. Emily had had enough and got up from her chair in the middle of dinner, shouting at the top of her lungs, “SHUT UP ABOUT MY BODDDYYY!!!!”

The room fell silent, and Emily’s husband was left speechless as his family stared, and some tried to get Emily to calm down. The situation became more tense, and dinner was cut short, with Emily’s husband storming off to his friend’s place to spend the night.

A Nasty Text

Emily’s story serves as a reminder that no one should have to tolerate body shaming or passive-aggressive comments about their appearance. It is important to set boundaries and stand up for oneself, even if it means causing a scene or making others uncomfortable.

The Internet Responded

This commenter wrote, “I think the last thing your husband really wants is for you to “get therapy”. If you do, you’ll discover that he is an emotionally abusive bully and stop feeling guilty for refusing to put up with his garbage. Not the jerk, but your husband is. Do as he recommended and get therapy so that you can regain the self-confidence he has eroded with his cruel “observations”.”

Another person commented, “I 100% agree. OP should in fact text this back to him – “stop gaslighting me. You’ve been abusive and a bully. YOU need therapy to figure this out. Because if not, our marriage may be over.””
