I’m reposting this just because I remember writing this almost a year ago and it feels like I need to remind myself with my very own words.
In retrospect, I might have been too negative but nevertheless, you can think what you want to think to deal, to get by.
Thankfully, majority of the negative people who this post was about are no longer a part of my life 🙂
I’m not 100% sure about evil existing, but I know that people choose to bitch to feel better about themselves.
People get jealous. People can be stupid and not always think. People make mistakes.
They can be so insecure, it makes them spiteful just to hide their vulnerability. They might not own themselves yet and choose to imitate everyone else in order to fit in, like sheep. Putting you down and seeing it take its effects on you makes them feel superior or better about themselves. They won’t always understand your braveness, your gift for being yourself, being different and happy.
People fear what is different and don’t always take the time to learn and understand this difference.
Sometimes, people are so messed up themselves, they’re clueless to the damage they’re inflicting on you.
A happy person would never want to inflict unhappiness in anyone’s life.
So ignore people. This is your life and nobody has the right to take away your need to feel beautiful.
It doesn’t matter what you look like because people define beauty according to years of cultural brainwashing. There is no such thing as a “standard of beauty”. Maya Angelou, Beth Ditto, Tina Fey, Oprah Winfrey, Mother Theresa, Gabby Sidibe, Margaret Cho. Beautiful isn’t a good enough word to describe these women.
Being pretty is nowhere close to being beautiful. Why not aim higher?
Beauty is something that is pleasing to look at? Happy, smiley, good people are pleasing to look at.
You+ feeling beautiful= You being a beautiful person.
So dress up, dance, sing your heart out, dream, eat cookies, wear red lipstick, inspire, try sky diving or yellow shoes, achieve, jump around your room. get a puppy.
Do whatever it takes for you to be beautiful ♥
