IS BEING PRETTY EVERYTHING?7:02 AM
Have you ever heard girls around you busy telling you & others that they’re not pretty because they don’t have small V-lined face, they are not white, they are not as tall as model, not as hot & sexy as Hyuna (휴나), or feeling completely insecure thinking they are not beautiful enough for the guy they like or even the boyfriend, maybe some of you are not fully confident with your appearance, but some are standing at the worst situation, they have their the best clothes, shoes, accessories and luxurious gadgets + things, but if your brain still thinks the grass of your neighbor is greener than yours, well it all won’t help gaining your confidence, don’t even to think you’re going to live your life happily and at peace.
Believe me. Or not. The harsh truth in this real and virtual world is people love to compare so much. Stop comparing yourself to other people. I did know how awful live is, if the live I live fully filled with jealousy, unthankful, miserable, insecure, worries. It’s terribly awful and will make me look older though, too much thinking about the things that everyone has and I can’t have, the opportunities that everyone has while I seem couldn’t get or achieve it. I easily did feel a little bit jealous and irritated mostly with everything I couldn’t have or do but people can/do when I was younger, now I’ve grown up, thank God, He always help me to always walk in my path, I’ve always told myself to just do great as the better (or best) version of my old self not as a person I think people will like or want.
Comparing is unavoidable, it’s necessary though, but let me tell you as a public health student that it really is not healthy for your body and soul when you always do. You might say life is unfair just because someone has/gets what you don`t. Hey, look at the good things we have and stop frowning at someone`s Instagram photos just because they went abroad, shopping luxurious items, bought new phone, having best moments of 2014 than you did. In my humble opinion, we all have our ups & downs life-stories, we all step into highs & lows paths, we all get our best and bad moments and so whatever, that’s what make us one of a kind.
