      It seems like every time I turn around lately I'm hearing or seeing someone shaming themselves because they do not fit today's idealistic image of airbrushed perfection.

    First of all, that image has more flaws below the surface than most of us have total. Yet we still listen to the hype and garbage that these companies try to tell us about what WE should look like or how WE should dress or even act. The fact that we let someone else decide what makes us feel good is total bullsh#@ in my eyes and I am tired of it.

      I say we because I too fall into the category of not being satisfied or happy with my current self. I however do not need other people that do not know me saying that I am not beautiful because I don't look like Magic Mike. I am working on myself day by day to get in better shape and better over all health. But the damage has already been done to my psyche that exercise and eating right cannot heal. I used to be ok with myself until social media came along. I mean I wasn't a ripped abs model type but I at least didn't hate myself. Now I don't like mirrors, or taking pictures, or going swimming. Because I know I will be judged not for who I am but for how I look in swim trunks, or by how much bigger I may be than the people in the pic next to me. These things slowly eat at you until you are no longer the person you were meant to be. It is a shame that we cannot look at one another and see the amazing beauty inside each other and openly say something about it. I have seen and felt more love here than any where else I have been online and I thank each of you for that.

      I know I am not the only one here that needs to hear a positive word of praise every now and then. Just someone saying "Hey you look good today" is all it takes to change a person's day and perhaps their life. So I am posting this to tell everyone here that reads this.

      I think you are beautiful. I think the person you are is amazing and you should let that light inside you shine as brightly as I know it can.

      If you want to change yourself for the sake of yourself, then do so. But to hell with hollywood and the superficial arse monkeys that have personal trainers and starve themselves to be a size 0. Their opinion of us does not matter. Strive daily to be the best you that you can possibly be and let the world take it's opinion and shove it.

     

      I live through music so I am going to post the lyrics to a song and a link so you can listen to it. I ask that anyone of you that has a song that is an inspiration to you and may touch someone else. Please post the lyrics so we can all see that we are all beautiful in our own way.

     Thank you for reading and sharing,

    with love, honor and respect

    Rob

     

     

     

    ALESSIA CARA
    "Scars To Your Beautiful"

    She just wants to be beautiful
    She goes unnoticed, she knows no limits,
    She craves attention, she praises an image,
    She prays to be sculpted by the sculptor
    Oh she don't see the light that's shining
    Deeper than the eyes can find it
    Maybe we have made her blind
    So she tries to cover up her pain, and cut her woes away
    'Cause covergirls don't cry after their face is made

    But there's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark
    You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
    And you don't have to change a thing
    The world could change its heart
    No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful
    Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
    And you don't have to change a thing
    The world could change its heart
    No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

    She has dreams to be an envy, so she's starving
    You know, "Covergirls eat nothing."
    She says, "Beauty is pain and there's beauty in everything."
    "What's a little bit of hunger?"
    "I could go a little while longer," she fades away
    She don't see her perfect, she don't understand she's worth it
    Or that beauty goes deeper than the surface
    Ah oh, ah ah oh,
    So to all the girls that's hurting
    Let me be your mirror, help you see a little bit clearer
    The light that shines within

    There's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark
    You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
    And you don't have to change a thing
    The world could change its heart
    No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful
    Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
    And you don't have to change a thing
    The world could change its heart
    No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

    No better you than the you that you are
    (no better you than the you that you are)
    No better life than the life we're living
    (no better life than the life we're living)
    No better time for your shine, you're a star
    (no better time for your shine, you're a star)
    Oh, you're beautiful, oh, you're beautiful

    There's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark
    You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
    And you don't have to change a thing
    The world could change its heart
    No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
    And you don't have to change a thing
    The world could change its heart
    No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

    We all need to hear it and if we can't tell each other here I know the outside world won't tell us.

    And yes, you are beautiful.

    Thankyou so much for this I just started crying reading this because I felt that way today.

    I thank god for you and my friend James because others wouldn't come to do all of this like you did.

    Keep doing what your doing because this could save someones life. 

    It could have saved my life if my friend didnt help me through it.

    First of all SM , that is a beautiful song and I listen to it very often along with her other songs. She is a talented and heart felt artist. 

     

    Secondly , I can't thank you enough for posting this. You share vulnerability and care for others , a lot of Daddies have this exterior , and act like they have no insecurities.. like they are invincible. Yes, Daddies are our super heroes but you guys have feelings as well and thank you for showing this side of you.

     

    You , being a good friend of mine know specifically what I have been going through as of late so this really hit a note on my heart.  

     

    A few people have read this and have given a response about how it has touched them , but for the people who haven't and aren't going to reply , I hope SM's words touch you and you think about this post during your hard times. 

     

    As well as Daddies , I feel like this is something everybody should read at some point , you are gifted with your words SM and thank you again.

    I definitely have this problem. I'm very self-deprecating and negative about my looks. It's good to read a post where someone cares enough to post it. Thanks, somethingsmissing.

      As always you are too kind my dear friend. You are one of the most beautiful and caring people I know and if this brought even a shimmer of light to you during your day then I am happy I shared.

     I do think a lot of daddies have that hard exterior that is used to make littles feel safe and protected. But at the same time we have to embrace our nurturing side so that we understand their feelings on a different level. We need to be able to feel as deeply as they do to understand them. That can be a challenge but learning and growing is what this is all about. 

     Do me a favor and remember that no matter what life throws at you, you got this. You are an amazing person and I am honored to count you among my friends.

    Hello frog,

     I hope you are well and this finds you in good spirits. I also want to thank you for putting yourself out there by responding, I know that is not easy.

    We are all in this together and we should be trying to build each other up instead of standing by idle as the world tears each of us down. So take heart that you are not alone in your journey, you have friends here that care. Have a wonderful day and stay positive.

    Well said sir, your words remind me of a famous speech and id like other to see it if you have the time, it highlights the powers at be that want us to feel and think a certain way to stay at home and consume more to feed their bank accounts.

    I agree with this on so many levels. Unfortunately, I think we are too often judged on what we are not, or what we could be instead of who we are. So thank you for this beautiful post and reminding people that their worth is about so much more than the opinions of others :)
