flowers & people


I believe there is no such thing as physically ugly people.
Acne, scars, wrinkles, sags-they are all a part of us.  Yes, they might not be necessarily “good”, but they are still a natural part of us.  These physical “imperfections” are inevitable, and we all will, at one point in our life, experience them.
And why are they even called imperfections?
It is natural to have under eye circles.  To develop wrinkles.  To have moles.  To have crooked teeth.  How is the way our human body functions considered “imperfect”?
And it is ridiculous for society to select one physicality, and define that alone as beautiful.  And declare that everybody should want to, and strive to, look like that.
Who would select one flower in a garden and call it the only beautiful flower?  And say that all other flowers are ugly?
All flowers are beautiful.  A tall sunflower, a barbed rose, or a tiny daisy.
No one size.  No one color.  No one shape.
We humans are the same.  All sizes, all colors, all shapes.  Not one alone.
Who is society to tell us that who we naturally are is not acceptable?  That it is something to be ashamed about, and to cover up and mask?
Why do so many happy, carefree young girls grow up to be insecure in a world that preaches “acceptance”?  Why do they hate their bodies?  Why do they cry in front of the mirror?
So the next time you look in a mirror and frown at what you see, remember that you are not ugly.  Your body, your hair, you skin, your face-you are meant to have it.  It is yours.
Don’t listen to society, because it is enough, and beautiful.

“A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it.  It just blooms.”
