I Am NOT A Unique Snowflake

Beauty Is A Curse On the World

Beauty is a curse on the world. It keeps us from seeing who the real monsters are.

Everyone has something they don’t like about themselves.
No matter how glorified you are in the eyes of society (actors, pro-sports athletes, billionaires, etc.) there is always something that when you look deep inside your own mind and you examine your own self-worth you discover what your flaws really are and just how imperfect you are.

So what is the solution?

If it is something mental, most of us either bite the bullet and just learn to live with it.
Others will try as much as they can to overcome the odds, even when they are not in their favour by any means possible: reading, travelling and gaining a broader perspective, extra classes, etc..

If it is something physical, this is where an easy solution is possible.
It is quite easy to change/dye your hair, wax your body, wear coloured contacts, go tanning and do WHATEVER a person feels is required to better suit an image of beauty and perfection in their society.

Yet, for others this is still not enough and extreme forms of change are now available to people.
Over the last few decades, the miracles of modern medicine have allowed people to cover up their ‘flaws’ quite easily if their financial status allows them to.

Plastic Surgery.
Nose, eyes, drooping skin, extra weight, bigger breasts, bubblier butt.
WHATEVER can be conceived as being ‘wrong’ with yourself can be solved simply by a flick of a blade.

My sister received 2nd and 3rd degree burns when she was an baby to 40f her body and plastic surgery allowed her to lead a normal life.
The marvel of this particular surgery should be used for situations of this degree.

So, my point…

Why do people think that changing their physical appearance is right?
Who says that a perfect pair of breasts or lips will make your true inner beauty stand-out more?
When does this journey for physical excellence end?

When I picture growing old with a loved one, I picture someone who has a good heart and has respect for herself.
Everyone falters at one point or another in their lives, but as long as they realize what they are doing and they take baby-steps in order to achieve a proper outcome, that’s all that matters.
Beauty is something we all want, but the most monstrous and hideous thing out there is an ugly personality that tries to masquerade itself as beautiful, with lotions and colours and smells.

More and more people are taking advantage of medical marvels and ignoring the fact that in order to be a beautiful person their insides have to be catered to, before their outsides do.
As an abstract example, let’s say for example you get vomit or feces on your hands.
Would you ever just wipe it off with a towel or tissue and continue on your day?
I would hope some water and soap would be used.

The same thing is seen here.
In order to make changes you have to start from the inside and work your way out.

No matter how ugly or imperfect you feel, society must always remember that the solutions that work must be done internally, not externally.
