On Telling People They Smell

Do not tell people they smell. You have no idea what they go through when you don’t see them, or if they even have access to a shower. I’m bringing this up because yesterday I had someone tell me anonymously that I smell bad. I had an INTENSE FOOT SURGERY 1 MONTH AGO. It is extremely hard for me to shower. Even though I shower weekly, it takes a lot more energy than normal, of which I currently don’t have. Yes, I use deodorant. Yes, I brush my teeth and chew gum. But I may still smell. It’s not your place to tell me that, even through anonymity. Words hurt, consider how you use them.
