I understand the concept of telling this to everybody, and I originally loved the concept of it.
Low self esteem is horrible, and it makes me sad to see people who think complete shit of themselves.
However, I hate it when I am having a down day, and someone says either this, or a phrase equivalent to me. Pisses me off more than I can comprehend.
I feel that this phrase is so overused to the point of becoming a rude comment. I get so damn irritated when I hear people saying this. I understand you may want to comfort someone who is depressed, or someone who has harmed themselves. I never wish any of that upon anyone.
But that stuff doesn’t make them “beautiful.” And believe it or not, there are ugly people.
Not all depressed, suicidal, or self-harming people are beautiful, and I don’t like strangers saying that to them, or any other type of person. If you know them, that’s a different story. But don’t tell someone they’re beautiful because you think it will “save” them, or give them this oh-so-life-changing epiphany.
I am not a beautiful person. I’m an asshole, and the perfect proof of a person who isn’t “beautiful.” I’m not terrible, but don’t go and fluff and glorify me whenever I’m upset to try and give me a temporary confident boost.
Try listening to someone’s problems instead, then try boosting confidence for real.
Sorry not sorry.
And yes I’ve copy/pasted a couple of my posts on here. They fit on here and as individual posts. -thumbs up-
