I think it is pointless to assure people of their physical beauty! Yes I said it….whatever insecurities you have…I have them too! Do you feel fat? do you feel ugly? even though just yesterday you could have sworn you were physically attractiveness :/…..do you wish your belly was flatter? do you wish your hips where not so round? or whatever insecurities floats your boat. if you feel all of these things and more, then I would like to welcome you to my world and probably the world of millions of other people!. Honestly, it is a moot point when conferences and discussions are held on assuring people of their physical beauty…because, society at large is shallow and there will always be a standard of beauty.. whether you are on par with that standard depends on what generation you exist in.
My point is this, you had nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with the way you look. Tall,short,fat,skinny,black,white,Asian, blue, green, orange, mannequin, robot….you get the point? (except of course you are a glutton then by all means try to stop over eating if you can mange it..for health reasons)… So, maybe we should focus on not making how we look, “feel” about how we look, whether we consider ourselves beautiful or ugly, or if we would ever lose that last 5-10 pounds important…The measure of ones attractiveness is not as important the heart…yes your heart….cliche’?maybe…but it is true. Let us exalt kindness, meekness, honesty, joy,gentleness, selflessness, and love … real virtues over physical aesthetics…maybe then, people starving them selves to fit an idea of beauty will stop.
I’m not sure if you have ever seen skeletons? but they pretty much look the same. There is no marking or sculpting on them that says ” oh.. and over here we have the once physically attractive skeletons” nope not one. I have never been to a funeral but I’m yet to hear of one where people paid their respect to the dead by describing how attractive they were physically…. This leads me to conclude that physical beauty in of itself… is useless, if not used for a bigger purpose
I would like to end by saying that you and I are more than how we look,past mistakes,race,stereotypes,background. Our existence and contribution to life was never contingent on those things… all that crap is man-made. After that rant *Sigh*… I hope whoever I wrote this for, feels better and lives up to their potential. Just so this is in line with what this blog is about I would like to add at this point that, fashion, beauty , and of-course personal style is not about physical attractiveness according to society or otherwise but an expression of individual creativity as interpreted by you and lastly, stop stressing and go thrift shopping (yup…I rhymed)
