Being pretty is a genetic lottery some people just win. But do they really win with all the additional pressure it comes with? I read an article on EliteDaily “6 Reasons Why Beautiful Women Are Also Insecure Women” & it was something I had to share. I’m not saying pity the pretty, just;be kind

Though not born naturally flawless (far from it); I look exactly like my mom & that to me means I’m pretty because I can’t think of anyone more beautiful than my mom.

Disney reference for the win!

But what irks me the most is that women tear each other up, unnecessarily. As if that were a way to prove themselves better, and it makes them smarter, prettier, more like-able. Maybe we should take a second & read this;
