You Look Disgusting - a video I had to share with youJuly 02, 2015
The subject of this video fragment is not something happening in the dark corners of the world wide web ... no, it happens openly, all around us, everywhere.
Coincidence is that I am in the midst of writing a blog post similar to the subject mentioned in the video. In it I write that behind every person who makes a vile comment on another person's appearance or character is in fact a very, very insecure human being, desperately trying to drag other people down to that level to make themselves feel better. By making a comment on how stupid or ugly someone else is, they are actually saying look at me being so much better and prettier than that person - desperately trying to believe their own words.
Where does this behaviour come from? I think the extremely high standards the media is imposing on us. It makes us insecure and hate our flaws. Because by watching those beautiful and perfect (and photoshopped!) celebrities on the cover of whatever magazine, it feels as if we are the only ones with flaws, and we come to hate ourselves, and as a result we spread that hate by tearing others down to make ourselves feel better. It's a vicious circle that needs to be broken - now!
Watch the video!
We are all beautiful, but please don't make yourself ugly by tearing others down. Love yourself, and others! The world would be so much better if we did!
