If you want to see a positive change in the world, you have to start the trend. In our society, we are experiencing the struggles of accepting others and even more importantly ourselves. Everyone wants to be accepted and they deserve to be. They deserve to be comfortable with who they are. It's the 21st century, our society should stop being judgmental and start accepting that everyone is different. I love the fact that people are different! What if we all dressed the same, acted the same, and ate the same meals? That would be so boring. The bullying and the hate is so toxic and it's bringing us all down. We all have the right of "Freedom of Speech", but there is a fine line between stating your opinion and being down right ignorant.
In this day in age, it is so hard to accept ourselves because of the society we live in. I'm not saying all people feel this way, but enough of are. I've always felt this way, but because of recent topics and videos, I thought it was time to share how I feel. Em Ford from My Pale Skin Blog, was one of the people that inspired me. After watching her video "You Look Disgusting", I was sad and empowered at the same time. I felt sad because, she's a beautiful person and doesn't deserve this hate. I was empowered because she learned to love herself no matter what, we should all love ourselves! Another topic is Caitlyn Jenner. She showed me that everyone goes through struggles, no matter what age you are. She is finally comfortable in her own skin and that's amazing. Anyone who changes/ transitions into who they really are deserves that acceptance. We are all human beings, one person isn't better than the next and one struggle isn't more important than the next.
Honestly, I feel if you learn to have acceptance for yourself that will allow you to have acceptance for others as well. Our society is changing, but it's a work in progress. There are still judgmental people in this world and unfortunately you can't do anything about it. People have their own choices and decisions to make, but being rude shouldn't be one of them. I understand people have their own beliefs, moral values, and opinions. No one deserves hate, sometimes that hate for someone causes them to hate themselves and that's terrible. I don't expect people to feel the same as I do, I just think people should accept people for who they are. If only everything was that simple. But it's not and I'm not sure if it will ever be. I am just feeling this way and I thought I would express my feelings.
