My last post really got me thinking. Why is it that beautiful girls think they are less than that?
It seems that there are so many pretty ladies that don't realize just how attractive they really are.
It's like we tend to be able to see others clearly, but when we look at ourselves in the mirror the reflection is distorted. I can't help but wonder why that is.
We are our own worst enemies, but how did that all start?
I think a lot of it has deep roots, seeded in traumatizing childhood events.
Years of rejection and teasing have taken their toll.
I still remember clear as day when I was about 14 hearing from a 3rd party that an older guy told the boy I liked not to like me because I was ugly. Yep, just ugly. That was about 12 years ago now, and it still upsets me.
Cruel events like that leave deep scars that never fully heal.
Why people are so mean I'll never understand. I'll just chalk it up to being young and stupid. Except that some people are still mean way past their "young" years...
Either way, it's terrible that these jerks from years passed still seem to affect us somehow.
This is going to sound lame, but I really think that everyone is pretty in their own way.
Just because someone called you ugly or fat 10 years ago doesn't make you wrong. It makes them wrong.
To quote the Backstreet Boys, "What makes you different, makes you beautiful". The older I get the more I believe that is true.
I hate the way the media is constantly splashing images of these 100 lb perfect girls that we are supposed to look like in our faces. Do we really need to look like that to be considered attractive?
Thank goodness the answer is no, otherwise there would be a lot of lonely people out there!
Waiting for James to arrive!
