It's so weird lately I've realized that people (a lot of them I know) are obsessed with being "beautiful." By "beautiful" I mean: has to wear make up, constant attention/compliments, and they think they aren't pretty (or skinny) enough. I suppose it's taboo to me, because I'm comfortable in my own skin. It just makes me sad because a lot of these people I know are really beautiful. Lately, I feel like I need to sing One Direction to everyone. Maybe it's just that time of year where teenagers get more angsty than usual...To me I think nearly everything is beautiful in it's own little way (maybe not poop though. it's pretty gross). Just the other day I got an anonymous message on tumblr because they felt the need to tell me I looked fat in my outfit of the day post (which consisted of a large sweater and loose skirt). It really didn't bother me, but it was just sort of weird. Who said looking/being fat was a bad thing? There's plenty of people who are bigger that are super pretty, but I feel like a lot of people don't realize that you can be thin or wide to be pretty. It doesn't have to be one or the other! In the Victorian Era plump people were thought more beautiful than thin people (it showed wealth). On the other hand there are really thin people who are gorgeous (example: Twiggy Lawson). Make-up is the same way. There's a lot of people that I know who are so freaking beautiful without make-up, but because of other people they feel the need for gallons of base, eye shadow, and lip gloss. On the other hand, some people look really great with make-up. It really all depends. Gosh people stop being so hard on yourself and deal with the fact that you're pretty. Now I'm not saying you have to be fat, you have to be skinny, you shouldn't wear makeup, or you should wear makeup. You should do whatever makes you happy.
