A considerably offensive title can only be screened by the positive moral of the post, for which i assure you there will be… Society these days is ruled by the pretty; the youtubers, the instagram models, Donald Trump (just joking), but why is that? Well these are the people who we all secretly aspire to be. You may not openly admit this, but if i offered you a chance to be rich, without having a real job, and to be loved by hundreds of thousands of people, just because of the way you look, would you really say no?
No you wouldn’t, why the fuck would you. We all want to be beautiful. We buy brand new clothes, new shoes, invest in cosmetics and hair products, to portray our own image every time we step out the front door. And in a way it’s a good thing, everyone on planet earth deserves their own image, for people to see who you truly are, which is easily expressed by our appearance. Now the majority of you may be reading this, pondering as to what my point is, but it’s simple really. What if we cannot be beautiful? How does society view you? How do you view yourself? This is where a lot of anxiety issues can arise. Personally, as many of you are, i am a firm believer that everybody is beautiful in their own unique way. However, when it comes to our appearance, this rule doesn’t apply to the society we live in. Kids get bullied at school; adults get avoided in the street, it’s all the same. If you’re not beautiful, and you know people think that, that’s when the anxiety problems start to nibble away at you.
How fucked up is that? If i’m not beautiful i get anxiety? Doesn’t this scream at you right in the face that there is something wrong with today’s society? Yes, there is. Unfortunately, there isn’t really much we can do about that.
I know this post has been completely negative, but i’m getting to the point. As a teenager, i even had a brief stint in the modelling industry, until i figured that there wasn’t much point to it, and making a career from the way you looked is not a career i wanted to pursue. Now; i have severe Alopecia, and every day is a struggle to get out of the house, because of how terrified i am of people looking down on me. But this is not the ‘be all and end all’ of existence. Everyone, beautiful or not, has people who love them, people who are there for them no matter what. It may be one person, or one hundred people, but THEY are the people who matter. If they can love you for who you truly are then don’t let them go. Love them, cherish them, because these are the people who matter in life. Who gives a fuck how many followers you have on instagram? Who gives a damn how many people you’ve slept with by casting your spell of divine and beauty? The answer is; not the people who matter.
Take this as a lesson, use this as a ‘pick me up’, i don’t care. Just know that you are all fucking beautiful, and i promise that there are people out there who agree with me. Fuck society.
