So it turns out that apparently so far my posts have been perceived to be ‘depressing’, and if it does seem depressing to you, then you’re not reading it right. Unfortunately, there’s more to life than ‘that feeling when you’re thirsty and you take that first sip of ice coke slush from the cinema’ or those moments when you come home from school starving and exhausted to be greeted by food and your bed.
I haven’t forgotten that there are beautiful things too. Frankly, were surrounded by beautiful things and we don’t really need the constant reminder. However, why not?
How does one define beauty in oneself? For A LOT of us it’s a matter of physical appearance. Its about your eye color, your weight, your height, your clothes, your hair, your make-up; it’s an endless list and doesn’t anyone get tired of seeing the same thing over and over again? Society and the media have involuntarily created this mold that every girl is desperate to fit in to. But why?
I cannot think of ONE girl in the entire universe who is genuinely satisfied with their body. There has to be a problem with yourself even though its always non existent! And if there isn’t one, its created. It’s ridiculous, because there is no set definition to beauty! It’s so sad, because there are so many beautiful things in this world and yet people have created only ONE way or ONE look which can be classified as beautiful.
Who cares if you have a little meat on your thighs? Or if you’re darker skinned? Or if you have freckles? Or if your breasts are a little small? Or if you’re shorter? Why do we tell ourselves that this is what we HAVE to look like? You’re negative thoughts have no right to define you. I mean sure we can blame the media but we’re also to blame. We all buy into it. I buy into it and so do you. “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” – Umm, no Kate Moss, have you ever tasted a burger?
Its actually shame because no one looks at themselves and appreciates their own true beauty. That’s not something you can get for 5 million hours at the gym or a diet consisting of a lettuce leaf a day. It’s something you’re born with and it’s such a shame that we try so hard to hide it or even take it away.
The most beautiful thing about all of us is that were different. Each one of us is individually different. You’re beautiful because you’re unique And yet why do we try so hard to look like a clone of Barbie. It’s unrealistic. Imagine life without comparison. Seems a lot more beautiful already doesn’t it? We all need to accept the fact that we are beautiful. Try waking up in the morning tomorrow and look in the mirror, just stare your reflection and be proud of it. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
You have one body, one life – choose to love it. For there is no definition of beauty, and do not let anyone else tell you otherwise. You’re beautiful.
