Smith said during the interview:

    “I felt so disgusted, like I didn’t care. That’s when the ‘other guy’ came into play. I decided to be entertaining and get people to like me before they even noticed I was fat. At first, it was hard to share when someone talks about watching their friend get killed and I’m like, ‘Okay. My fourth-grade teacher told me I’m fat, ‘but I’ve learned that there’s no differentiation [between levels of trauma] of the human nervous system. Internally, the shock is a shock. This was an eye opener because I always spent most of my time depressed about the past or worried about the future. I’m really interested to see if I can finally be comfortable just sitting by myself and being alone with my thoughts. I’m terrified to see everyone’s reaction to [all of this], but I know someone out there who doesn’t know this stuff – like I didn’t – can get something out of this. “
