Many people replied to the post to say it made them reflect on how they had treated their partners.

"We were going swimming the other day and I commented that the water was cold, I was met with the response 'trust me you have more than enough insulation,'" she wrote.

A lot of users offered supportive words to the lady. However, it was the advice from an old man that truly struck a chord with the Reddit community.

The man wrote: "I am an old man now, and my wife is gone. She was the most beautiful woman I have ever known, inside and out... but she often struggled to see that."

He remembered how his wife began "dieting and working out extensively," and he said one of his biggest regrets was that he at times had "made her feel less than beautiful."

"It still hurts me to think of the days and months where she was eating less in the hopes that I'd love her more," he wrote. "It makes me angry at myself."

The widower then offered advice to the young woman:

"I think you should let [your boyfriend] know how this makes you feel. If he loves you, I think he would be horrified to realize what his words do to you. If he does not realize that, you need to feed your soul a better diet."

Many people replied to the post to say it made them reflect on how they had treated their partners.
