Cannot believe the amount of beautiful people who post about being ‘ugly’. I’d love to write to every single one of them and tell them how beautiful they are and not to let other people get them down.
But then I’d be a major hypocrite.
Born with cleft lip and palate, I’m so aware of how people look at me, I’m paranoid the second I leave the house, I hate making eye contact with people on the street, I believe I’ll never be able to hold my head up high because people (strangers) will tear me straight back down. I believe surgery is the only way I’ll ever feel better in myself.
I hate when people complain about the tiniest thing ‘wrong’ with themselves. I’m like:
‘Shut the hell up! You can walk, talk and breathe by yourself, that’s amazing enough!’
But unfortunately, the culture we live in requires us to look good at all times, failing that, public humiliation is on the way.
We were ALL already born unique, why do we strive so hard to change?
I hate looking in the mirror. I feel bad that everyone else has to deal with my face, at least I can choose not to look in the mirror…
But I’m grateful for the small things in life and I guess that’s the moral of this tale. We only live a short life so don’t waste it trying to please everyone else.
Love, peace and sunshine.
