Feel Good With Zoe: How You Look and Why It Doesn't Matter

HELLO! Welcome to this new..series..type thing..that I'm doing. I am here to make you feel better about yourself. Well try anyway, I can't work miracles. I am here to make you feel more confident. Just don't become an arrogant prick. That's never fun. I'm going to try and shove a truck-full of confidence, down your...face..hole. That sounds highly unpleasant. Let's begin.

And today's topic is, how you look and why it doesn't matter.

I can not wait to get started on this topic, so I'm just going to jump right into it. *splash*
Now you, look at me. Well you can't really look at me but just..try. 

It doesn't matter what you look like. Honestly. Stop groaning at me. Now if you want this to work, stay with me and do as I say. I want you to get a pen and some paper and write down a list of things you don't like about your appearance. Go on..scram. I'll be waiting. Damn it, I'm trying to help you here!

*********************************************************************************
So, if you actually give a shit, you should have a list of things you do not like about yourself. I'm going to guess you have things written like, "I think I'm fat" "I have spots" "I'm just not as attractive as my friends". It is OK to have things you do not like about yourself. Everybody does. It is not OK, however, to let these things get you down. That is what you've been given, and you just have to suck it up and work with it. 

Now, I want you to look back over your list and answer this; how many of these "flaws", will stop you getting good grades at school? How many of those things will stop you getting into the college or career you want? How many of those things are making you unhappy right now? The answer to the first two questions is probably none of them. I don't know the answer to the third question but, what I do know is, you have the power to get rid of that negativity and stop these minor things making you unhappy because, they do not matter. 

It's human nature to not like ourselves. We want to be attractive to other people. Society wants us to not like ourselves and we are supposedly "arrogant" if we do. What you see in the mirror, is just a shell. A shell to protect the real you, which is inside that shell. Does that make sense? It did in my head. What you see in that mirror, will not get you through life. Going back to the "wanting to be attractive" thing, we all want someone who "loves me for who I am and not what I look like". Why do you care about being physically attractive to people then? Looking good makes us feel more confident. Lies. Looking in the mirror and accepting what we look like that day, gives us confidence. 

Your friend comes up to you and says, "I feel so ugly today". You don't think that. You love your friend and they are beautiful to you. Well guess what Sunshine, your friend thinks that same thing about you. Other people do not see you, the way you see yourself. You're not ugly, you damn fine.

What I am trying to say is, everyone wants to be pretty and attractive to be loved and adored by other humans. That's it. There is no such thing as an ugly person because, it is what is inside you that will get you through life, and that's all that really matters. 

I hope this helped you in some way. I know it'd kind of ranty, but go away its late. I hope you can feel that truck of confidence, ramming it's way..inside you. I'm going to need to find a new tagline for this series...

~Zoe
