Is it their looks? Is it their personality? Is it their ability to do things? Is it them? What is it? I think I’ve finally found the answer. I logged onto my facebook and I see my friend, let’s say Jackie, yeah her name is Jackie for now. My friend Jackie posted this status about how much she wanted to be skinny and how skinny girls are the prettiest and the most attractive. That post really bothered me because I felt really offended. I am not the skinniest thing alive and I’ve accepted it. Yeah, I’m overweight, but fuck I live in America. America is a continent on Earth, Earth is just a fraction of the size of the Sun. The Sun is only a molecule in the universe. Compared to all of that, why should we care what size we are?
So I commented on her status and said “Sure you can be skinny and pretty, but it takes more than that to be beautiful.” All she could say was “Well, I don’t feel very beautiful.. or attractive.” I told her that even if she was skinny she would find something to criticize herself for and that she still wouldn’t find herself beautiful. It’s taken me almost 10 years to figure this out. I should probably heed my own advice. However, I cannot stand someone who blatantly calls themselves ugly just for attention. I feel no one should be treated like that, no matter what they look like, because well. Everyone is beautiful. Whether you are 100lbs or 400lbs. It doesn’t matter. Nothing matters because life itself is beautiful. You shouldn’t beat yourself or anyone else down for not fitting the mold society has crafted.
To be happy is to be beautiful. Happiness is beauty. Life is beauty. You are the definition of beauty. Stay beautiful.
