So I like Victoria's Secret on facebook.
I think it is interesting to see their campaigns and behind the scenes photos.
One thing though that drives me crazy
is the trolls.
Every single picture is either
"ew. wat happend to her stomache? thats toally gross"
"She's way too skinny. Feed those models!!"
"I can see her rib cage! not sexy."
And it just gets so tiring.
Do these people really have nothing more to do than complain about how thin or oddly posed these models are?
My favorite is,
"Real women don't look like that."
Right. Exactly. That's why most women (if not all REAL women) aren't Victoria's Secret models.
Are you upset that you aren't a Victoria's Secret model? does that literally bother you?
I know there's no way in this life I'll be up there modeling for them. I'm 5'3!
I want a family. I want a house and a yard and oreo cookies.
I don't want to strut around in little lacy things and have my skin and hair airbrushed and worked on for hours.
I have other things to do. My own passions.
That's why I appreciate what this girl said in a comment this morning:
"Critical words from the jealous types. She (like everyone else in the world) is doing the best she can with what she has been given. I like to think she is doing the thing that she enjoys the most. If you have nothing nice to say about someone who is pursuing their passion, do some positive self-reflection and learn to pursue yours. Life is too short and too full of hate to compare your life to others. EVERYONE is beautiful inside AND out. Work it girl, you're BEAUTIFUL!"
Amen, random chick. Amen!
I have noticed that sometimes I get a little hateful. Sometimes I get a little jealous and I compare myself to my friends and complete strangers on pinterest.
It all boils down to what she said.
"Life is too short and too full of hate to compare yourself to others."
That is something that I struggle with that I will be working on improving.
I know if I don't work on it, it is something that will tear me apart.
Also? If you were to tell me, 3 years ago, that I would be eating sushi and going to yoga on the same night,
I'd say,"Who are you, and what've you done with the real Tab?!"
