Inspiration For The Weekend

Arlene Dahl
I found this quotation on the back of my copy of Caroline Cox's How To Be Adored and it struck a chord with me. It reminds me of the fact that sometimes girls can be incredibly judgemental based purely on looks alone, you're probably guilty, and I know I am guilty too. The one question we never seem to address is why? Why do we pick on the person with the physical features that are different to ours? Why do we make fun of people who can't afford what we have in terms of clothes or other material goods? Why do we even think that we have the right to do so?

I can guarantee that at one point those who make fun of others based on physical appearances were once feeling exactly like the persons to whom their words and actions are directed. I just wish that people would stop and consider that for a moment. We may say things to 'look cool' or 'act cool' in front of others but to be honest perhaps you, the one saying/doing these mean things has not yet reached your full potential, no-one's ugly, but your personality needs an overhaul.

I hope you're listening. Just a little thought.

Have a fabulous weekend <3

  1. Wise words.

    If something drives me nuts more than anything else it's those who feel the need to judge others for something that isn't harmful in the slightest. And this includes looks because if someone chooses to grubby/gothic/always wear a dress/wear make-up/not wear make-up/dye their hair/have a visible tattoo it is no one business but their own.

    Admittedly I'm still guilty of doing this but at least I keep my thoughts to myself.
