The 21-year-old posted about her boyfriend’s comments on her appearance, when a widower with the username EndlessEnds gave her some beautiful words to live by.
In a post titled “I’m losing weight but my partner is still giving me a hard time about my appearance,” the woman explained that her boyfriend often made negative remarks about her weight.
EndlessEnds’ emotional response was probably not what she expected to receive.

“She was the most beautiful woman I have ever known, inside and out… but she often struggled to see that.”
He went on to recall how his wife had “started dieting and working out extensively”, and said one of his biggest regrets was that he had “made her feel less than beautiful” at times throughout their relationship.
