Smile Darling

Recently, I set out into a world that almost all people phase to. It’s like everyone is trying to criticise each other, especially in terms of their physical appearances. I, too, belong in the term “everyone” and “each other”. You, too, are also under those terms.

Let’s get rid of those unwanted thoughts after hearing those useless judgments. Let’s get rid of “Since when did I become the person they all wanted me to be?”. Let’s get rid of “Okay, I’m ugly as fuck.”. Let’s get rid of “I don’t want to live in this cruel world.”. Let’s replace them with beautiful thoughts.


Every morning, you wake up, the sun is shining for you. It’s constantly reminding you that you are appreciated. The flowers, the trees and the leaves, they convert carbon dioxide for you. They are trying to tell you that you should live. Every night, the moon is emitting its light so that you won’t be lost in the dark.

Just like your thoughts, sometimes you think that your’e not appreciated. Sometimes you think there are no more reasons to live. Sometimes you think your’e going to be lost in transition. I’m here to tell you that it’s okay.

I’m here to tell you to not give up. This is a wonderful world and it’s a huge privilege to be a part of it. Don’t let other factors pull you down to its abyss. Don’t let these hurtful judgments bring you down.

     “Your’e ugly.” “Your’e so fat.” “Your’e teeth are crooked.” “Your’e legs are too hairy.” “Oh, you don’t have a thigh gap?” “Your’e too thin.” “Your eyes aren’t aligned.” “Your nose isn’t lifted.” “Your nose is as flat as the ground.” “Your’e hated.” “Nobody likes you.” “Just go there in the corner, I’m annoyed as fuck.”

Just do what makes you happy, but make sure that it’s in a good cause. Set out and make a difference in this world. Declare positivity as your new mantra in life. Because darling, you are beautiful. You are appreciated by the world. You are a wonderful human being. You matter to someone. You are loved. You are supported. You are an inspiration. You are an amazing person! And I, appreciate you for you bravery in battling those things.
