Welcome to a world where “shallow” pretty ain’t pretty anymore.
I have said it a thousand times that what you look like on the outside isn’t the only thing that matters!!!!!!!! SO WHAT ELSE ARE YOU BRINGING TO THE TABLE. Because your looks aren’t entirely giving what it needs to provide in order for that to be enough. I don’t care how beautiful or handsome you are; you need to be more than that!
I have seen so many little girls run around with a face full of makeup, little to no clothes on, dumb as a box of rocks, and throwing themselves at the first little pea brain that looks their way.
That ain’t pretty!
Honey, that’s the definition of pathetic.
If any of my readers are parents, grandparents, auntie, or uncles, I need you to tell the young people in your life that they need to put looks on the back burner. Instead, their focus should be on creating a clear path for a prosperous future.
When we put pretty in the forefront, insecurities, mediocrity, unproductive self-evaluation, low self-esteem, and self-sabotage will soon follow. Not only that but once you are on the hunt for validation, ridiculous and life-changing mistakes will be next.
Pretty is trying so desperately to keep up with the next pretty that the only thing that matters is trying to outdo each other. They live for people telling them that they are “soooooo beautiful.” Never once will they hear the words you are:
- Honor student,
- Honor graduate
- Bright future ahead of you
- Ivy league student
Never will they receive a scholarship for a full ride to a prestigious college. But what they will hear is, “you are so pretty.” (INSERT EYE ROLL) We have to push our youth to be more than that.
In a world full of pretty, “shallow” pretty will soon find out that their kind of pretty ain’t pretty.
