    Wentworth Miller, the actor who starred in Prison Break, saw a meme of himself being fat-shamed posted on a website and wrote a truly beautiful response. He explained he's struggled with depression most of his life, and when the "fat" photo was taken he was in a suicidal period of his life. He used food as a coping mechanism to get through it, and as a result he put on weight. The full response is honest, heartfelt and lovely. I'm going through an incredibly stressful time right now which is severely exacerbating my depression and anxiety and his words made me cry, but they also gave me hope that maybe I'll be able to get through it too. Definitely worth a read for anyone struggling.
