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.

  3. Nicely said! Terkadang manusia memang begitu tapi kebahagiaan ngga akan kita dapat jika kita terus menginginkan sesuatu, itu ngga bisa didapat jika kita memiliki semua yang kita inginkan, itu hanya bisa didapat jika kita mensyukuri semua yang kita miliki. Karena di balik semua yang buruk pasti ada sesuatu yang indah nantinya.

  7. there was so much peer pressure, and so much comparing going on when i was still in middle and high school, but you start getting over that when you get older. don't ever compare yourself to others! only compare with your old self to be an even better person :) you are beautiful ollyvia<3

  11. I don't think being pretty is everything, I think having a kind heart is more. I was an ugly duckling growing up and people were mean to me, but now I grew out of that and people say how pretty I am, but I don't think it matters as I am still a kind person and learned to be even kinder through the teasing as a child. Pretty doesn't equal a kind person and I have seen many think their pretty appearance makes them the best person and it doesn't. I rather have a kind person than a pretty one really. This is a brilliant post :) xx

  12. omg great post! agree! you speak my mind! it's something i'm working on right now, i feel so small when i'm comparing myself with others but anyway it is what it is gotta werk it, being jealous of other people is such a waste of time no matter how many times you are jealous of other ppl in a day won't change anything in your life, instead it'll make your life even worse bc of that jealousy.
    cute outfit btw!

  17. Being pretty is not everything. The character that describes your person, that's everything! Try to express all that you have in heart and mind and you will be the character of yourself, and you will be beautiful! <3

  18. Pretty or not, all we have to do is just be confident, and deal with our self to accept everything that we've had. I did compare my self to another too back in my early twenty. But, I think it's okay, its motivate me to be someone better and better. Yang penting kita tidak mengeluh atas apa yang sudah Tuhan kasih buat kita, tapi semangat untuk mengembangkan talenta. Semangat Oliv!

  20. I think pretty only gets you so far. You need to be confident in everything you do and that in turn will create your beauty!
