Forget the mistakes and faults because they are too little in front of the Good things we did.
A few days ago, while reading a magazine I stumbled upon an article on body shaming. The dictionary meaning of this term is the practice of making of critical comments about a person’s weight. In spite of increasing awareness, we fail to accept people the way they are. We judge them for the way they look or dress.
In India, right from childhood, we face demeaning comments from our peer, which as time goes by, become more and more humiliating. Such insults results in extremely low self-confidence and hampers a person’s self-worth. We should learn to accept people around us for the way they are, respect an individual for his behaviour and character. For those who are at the receiving end of this humiliation, I have one advice: Turn a deaf ear to such remarks; you are beautiful the way you and you need no validation from others.
To quote writer Steve Maraboli, “Your Beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance. Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are….. how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humour, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have to yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.”
Unless you accept the way you are, you cannot blame others for not accepting you. There is beauty in everything; it’s just that we get blinded by the constant negative energy flowing towards us.
You can’t feel anything right that love that care if you are thinking in a wrong and negative direction, finding that one fault out of 100 positive things about him/her, even that person gives up his/her happiness for you, cares and love you the most, can do anything for you. So, just let that negativity goes off. Love never let you bound yourself, it always motivates you to be a free bird and be the best. Never forced you to do what you don’t want, but always say to to do what you want. Nothing is bigger than forgiveness and sacrifice in Love..
