Transcript for TikToker responds to users who think her husband should be with someone thinner
- By beauty standards, we don't make sense. The world looks at us and immediately values Scott more than me. [MUSIC PLAYING] These comments were nothing about me, or my humor, or my platform, and they were all about the differences in my husband's and mine's body, and just valuing me and my relationship, and my relationship with him down to something as simple as my size and his size. How sad is it that someone believes that their worth in a relationship should be solely reduced to how they look? And when she approached it in that way, as "you should be with somebody who looks like me," it was just basically the exact same thing that I have unlearned my entire life. I have unlearned that my value in my relationship with my husband has anything to do with my body. I spent many years feeling like I wasn't worthy of many things, happiness, a great career, the love for my partner. Scott has been my partner since we were 15 years old. His love has never changed for me. How I've allowed him to love me has. To realize that how I felt about myself directly impacted him on the experiences we had together. I pushed him away for so many years, making him feel silly for ever loving me. And I'm very grateful that he stuck with me and through that because that's not a fun place for anybody to be, especially not wanting to love somebody so deeply and them not realizing how lovable and important they are. Inside or outside of the beauty standards, everybody is struggling with them from two opposite ends of the spectrum. When realistically, taking a step back and realizing that your body has zero impact on who you are and what you're capable of is so freeing as a human being. So if we can help the younger generations just not learn it so that they don't have to unlearn it, I think that that's really, really cool.
