Caution: May sound petty.
I love browsing "How do I look section". Not because I am a guy and want to perv on the pictures of ladies there. Well, not entirely. But before browsing this section on GaG, i didn't know that beautiful people could be insecure.
I mean I can understand if they were insecure about some thing else. But about their appearance?
How does that help me?
I am ugly. No doubt in that. But looking at these people be insecure about their appearance makes me wonder why? And then I asked myself one question.
What would I have done, had I been that attractive?
The only logical answer that I could come up with was, probably I might have been insecure about something else. Like those people are.
So the question is, is it never possible to be content with how you look? Maybe it is, if you work towards some body goal and achieve it. Will you then become the most beautiful/handsome person on earth? Most likely not. But it helps in being content with oneself, because you achieved it.
Now. Does it apply to unspeakably ugly people like me? I dont think so. I have consulted, its not possible to change my appearnce unless something extreme like surgeries are involved.
I dont want that.
But what I did find helpful is, the fact that actions matter.
Though I look ugly, I was never treated horribly. I mean apart from simple inconvenience here and there (not wanting to invite me, not wanting to take group pics with me in it), I was never treated really bad. Because I usually smile and try to be helpful to people.
SO in the end, why should I worry about something, that is never going to be enough?
