Ugly. Nasty. Too sporty. Too skinny. Too muscular. Eat more. Eat less. Stupid. Moron. Idiot. Manly. She-man. Anorexic. Slut. Dumb blonde. Whore. Fast. Midget. Short.
What’s the point? These are all things I’ve been called online since becoming a blogger. Do I let it get to me? Absolutely not! Most days, I just laugh. Eating 3000 calories a day… yet I’m anorexic? I hold multiple degrees and certifications… but, of course, I’m just a dumb blonde! I must be Goldilocks though— because, according to other people who think they have a right to judge me, I’m somehow simultaneously too small & too big. It’s hilarious, really!
Levity aside though, a person needs to be in serious emotional pain in order for them to lash out with such hatred in their heart to a perfect stranger. To these people: I love you anyway, and I hope you find peace.
Life is too short, too precious, and too beautiful to put any stock in what others think of you. At the end of the day, you’re the only one living your life. You’re the only one living in your body. You’re the only one that has to be happy with the life you live and the person you are!
Moral of the story: don’t let other people’s opinions be the mirror you are looking into. The reflection you see will always be distorted. Love yourself!
