A piece of cake
I might not be the right one to give advice. Many many times, life's the one who gives me advice on it's on way. But if we talk over a coffee date in this coffee shop and share a piece of cake, I won't mind share what life has taught me. There are a few things that I strongly believe.
Beauty can't guarantee your happiness. I had a rough start of life as a child, no self pity here, and growing up there were things people say about me and think about me. And in some ways, there have been things that some of them still point out to me. Frequently, we judge people from their appearance and their face. When I was a kid, I heard about those people talking about how I'm the ugliest of all or how I would be stupid and would be nothing because my mom couldn't afford to raise me.
Mostly the emphasizement went to the physical appearance. When I was younger, I secretly mad with myself. 'Why I couldn't be prettier?' 'Why I couldn't be smarter?' 'Why I couldn't be thinner?' But then, there was this one point when I realize something. Beauty doesn't guarantee your happiness. I've seen those people who used to say those words to me failing their lives. Their lives not more than mine, and at some points I could see that what they pointed out to me were their anger to themselves. Cliche, but true. That day, I finally accepted what Iam. Every piece of it. The whole package. I chose to be happy.
Everyone's smart in their own way. Some people born to be an artist. Some people born to dance. Some people born to be a scientist. Some people born to be a star. And some people born, simply, to be a mother. I believe that everyone's smart in their own way. And because of that, refuse to be ordinary. Be extraordinary in what you do/love best.
The thing is, when people degrading you or think of you less because of your face or your appearance, don't get drawn to it. Choose to be happy. Because, surprise! You are pretty enough, smart enough and good enough, and no one can take that away from you.
