Something's been bothering me the last couple of days, and I felt like I should talk about it in here. I was hanging out with some friends the other day, not really paying attention to their conversation, since they're always talking about the same stuff over and over again. That was until I heard something that caught my attention, two of my friends turned to my other friend and said "You have the potential to be very beautiful, but you're not utilizing it". At first I was like they're probably just gonna give her some tips on how to accentuate what she already has, but that's not what they meant at all. They told her to get some lip fillers to make her lips bigger, and get injections done to make her nose smaller. I don't know about you guys, but to me thats not accentuating what you've got, that's completely changing it into something that it's not. That really upset me, it upset me how straightforward and serious they were when they said it, but what made me even more upset, was how my friend was actually considering it.
I'm not against people getting cosmetic surgeries, not at all. If that's something you really want, and something that would lead to your happiness then that's great and I'm happy for you. What I'm against, is people feeling self conscious and unhappy with the way they look, because of society's standards. Beauty does not lie in a single form, you do not have to look or be a certain way to be beautiful. Beauty lies in many forms, and every single person is beautiful in their own distinct way. I don't know why, but to me everything about a person that they might consider a flaw, is probably my favorite feature of them. Wanna know why? Because it's something unique to that person, that distinguishes them from everyone else, just like a trademark. It makes them more them. Basically. If that even makes any sense. I really do feel strongly about this, and I wish more people would just disregard society's idea of beauty and create their own. If we all looked the way society pressures us to look, we'd all be the same, and how boring would that be? Different is good, different is exciting, but most of all different is beautiful.
Until next time,
