Am I ugly? (Meaghan Ramsey)

by Emma

What is classified as ugly? Have we not been brought up to believe in ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’? Sadly not.
Look back at our fairytales…The princess, the prince. Did they have blemishes? Did they have varied weights? Sizes? No. What are we teaching the next generation? That to be accepted we need to be externally beautiful?
I have personally experienced the dreaded spot!… The bad hair day and the irony that this usually happens upon an event. Typical! Are we that superficial and ignorant that our expectations are controlled by societies failing?
Let’s rejoice in our beauty….external perfection will age and rot….internal beauty is infinite 🙂
