Humans are created different, not one is the same and we should celebrate the differences and the more rustic. Uniformity can be tedious – but at the same time this is what we all strive for to be like the other – particularly if the other is more dominant. Nobody wants to stand out. Yet in standing out, maybe where your beauty lie. Children go to school and cry if they are different and we should teach them to be proud of whom they are. We are divided on terms of beauty and size, image, colour, too light, too dark. Some are made to feel different about sizes as if there’s a standard. We become body conscious in a negative way. We look to celebrities to endorse our feelings and lack of self-esteem.
You can be whatever size you are, and you can be beautiful both inside and out. We’re always told what’s beautiful and what’s not, and that’s not right.”
Since I don’t look like every other girl, it takes a while to be okay with that. To be different. But different is good
