Fight to Forgive


Headphones – CHECK!

Libation – CHECK!

Cell Phone – CHECK!

Dog – CHECK!

Doors – CHECK!

So we’re ready to go!

Before we start, a song I got reminded of with the prompt –

I’m FAT! I admit it. I’m fat since birth. From that sweet cuddly coochie coochie puff-ball to this mountain of a man, I’ve come a long way. The situation changes though when you have issues accepting it!

And I always took this word as an insult all throughout my schooling. For some reason, it never fitted an honest description of mine, and I’m honest!

There was this guy Manish (for some reason I can’t recall his surname), who often teased me about it when he was 30 kgs heavier than I was then! He had a belly when he was in 10th grade, and I don’t want to demean him or anyone but he truly walked like an elephant!

Then one noon, the anger inside me just went through the roof. He along with some others, started making fun of me yet again when I clearly wanted to study. It was time for face off. We started pushing each other like all Indians start off and then came the heavy push from him. He threw me back a dozen steps back before I regained control again. This was it! No one will ever bully me again (or so I thought) and went full throttle, all my weight behind my head and shoulders and struck him on his chest with my fists. He flew – his bum right into the dustbin behind him. The scene was delirious! All my anger vanished right then. I went up to him, pulled his bum out from the hole, and he winked! I’ll forever remember the wink!

He never teased me again, in fact, a couple of months later, he left school and came to say a proper goodbye on his last day.

I’ll forever remain proud of what I did. It taught me of the strength in my body, of my quick feet and most of all, of my forgiveness!

  1. From now on, whenever I am afraid to stand up to someone, I’ll just imagine the person flying bum-first into a dustbin!

    This post made me smile so much. 🙂

  2. Isn’t it amazing when you somehow discover that you’ve always had this power within you? It’s scary for the bully too because he lulls himself into thinking that things will always stay the same. Great story.
