For the longest time I hadn’t had the time to take care of myself. Work stress paved way for illness and I stayed home sick for two whole weeks. I would do nothing but eat, watch soppy rom-coms, and during this time, I didn't even realise how much weight I had gained.
One morning, as I was recovering from my illness, I got out of bed and looked at myself. What had I become? Why had I let myself go this way? I looked terrible.
As I was thinking, he woke up and looked at me. Before I could say anything, he said, “You look beautiful”.
