Anonymous asked: thank you for that post & i don't want to bring negativity into this, but i just feel like i have to say something. you should be happy with the way you look, because your skin is normal, your features are normal, your hair is normal, your body is normal. & yes there is such a thing as "normal". if you had acne that looked like a disease, if you couldn't have afforded to have straight teeth etc etc you WOULD want to change yourself, because it's not "normal"... you have no idea, that's the truth
Lol it’s okay. But that’s not the truth it’s your opinion and a lot of y’all seem need to learn the difference between fact and opinion. Anyway you say I “should” be happy with my appearance because I have “normal” features but that doesn’t matter because I wasn’t happy with it at all. In any way. Even though I “should” have been.
Everyone SHOULD be happy with their appearance because EVERYONE is freaking beautiful inside and out because we were created in the image of God, yet we’re flawed and most of us just keep finding reasons not to be happy with who and what we are. I met a girl in Indiana with a horrible skin condition throughout her whole body, she was very skinny and frail. But she was one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met and I felt like she knew that, she just radiated joy. You can’t just tell people how they “should” feel about themselves, we feel however we feel.
That was the whole point of my post, that no matter WHAT we look like and regardless of whether or not society deems us “attractive” or “pretty”, we can still feel really bad about ourselves OR really good depending on how we feel inside. In other words, your comfort with your appearance has nothing to do with what you see and EVERYTHING to do with HOW you see it. The caps are for emphasis, I promise I’m not angrily yelling at you hahaha.
Anyway I appreciate you bringing this up so I could further my point and hopefully explain my opinion, not facts, to you. I mean I think some of my points are facts but who knows whether I’m right or not, I’m just basing it off my experience and that’s all I can do.
Have a good year btw
