Cruel trolls say I’m ‘punching’ because my man’s so hot – but I don't care, he loves me as I amJanuary 27, 2022
IF we were to believe every romantic comedy we watched growing up, then skinny girls are the only ones who ever get to experience true love while beautiful plus-sized ladies are always an afterthought.
Luckily, this just isn't the case in real life – and knights in shining armours aren't solely reserved for those who look like they could play the lead in a noughties chick flick.
One person who knows a little something about this is TikTok user Sammy Brown.
In a series of viral videos, the plus-size social media star explained how she's previously been bullied because of her weight – but is now in a relationship with a solid "12 out of 10".
After sharing a clip of her and her long-term boyfriend chilling on the sofa, the 30-year-old urged her followers to "embrace their curves".
She wrote: "When everyone you went to school with thought you'd be sad and lonely because you were fat.
"But you've been dating a 20/10 for the past six years."
In Sammy's initial clip, the couple are enjoying a low-key night in when her boyfriend turned to her and gave her a cheeky wink.
And in less than 24 hours, it's already racked up over 2.3m views – and fans said it was clear how much her boyfriend loves her.
One replied: "This look was just… so pure. So much love."
I see two beautiful people. He's lucky to have you.
"I see two beautiful people," another added. "He's lucky to have you."
Meanwhile, a third gushed: "Girl he did that – like he is the one dating a 12/10."
But like with anything on social media, the videos sadly opened Sammy up to trolls who claimed her boyfriend was "punching".
Sadly, she has been forced to turn the comments off on the video and says the cruel comments has sent her anxiety through the roof.
What is anxiety and where can you get support?
Anxiety is a normal feeling, also known as the "fight or flight" response.
When presented with stress or danger, the body pumps adrenalin through to body – allowing it to cope with the situation at hand.
However, anxiety can become a problem when this response occurs unnecessarily – either because the danger is not that severe, or there isn't actually any danger at all.
Anxiety disorders can develop as a result of a number of factors, including stress, genetics and childhood environment.
As with any mental health condition, people often feel isolated, alone and ashamed of how they are feeling – concerned that they are the only person in the world to struggle in this way.
If you know someone has said that they suffer from anxiety – or you suspect they do – the best thing you can do it be there for them.
Make sure they know they are loved and cared about.
Tell them that you want to help and support them, that you release this process could take a long time but that you are willing to wait.
Explain to them that the best thing they can do is to reach out and seek help from a professional but let them know that you realise they may not be comfortable doing that straight away.
Be gentle and allow them to move at their own pace rather than forcing them to take immediate action.
When they are ready visiting a GP and connecting with other people who have suffered from anxiety would be a good place to start.
She said: "The worst comments were coming from kids as young as 13 – TikTok should be doing more to control trolling."
In response to a user who cruelly claimed her partner's looks were her "personality trait", Sammy hit back with: "What, it's 'bad' because I'm proud of my partner?!"
And while others commented that Sammy's boyfriend had jumped from a "12 out of 10" to a 20 in the space of two videos, she joked: "He upped his game!!"
