Some much needed Info.
I've been thinking lately about how opinionated we all are. This needs to stop. Constantly putting your own opinions and ideals on others is rude and accomplishes nothing good. I'm tired of shallow conversations. " She does NOT have the legs to wear those shorts!" "wow. That hair color looks awful on her." "You should smile more. You look depressed" "You look so tired! Are you sick?"
Please, I beg you. Stop saying these types of things. It's wonderful to have style and personalities and differences. It's what makes us human! But belittling and forcing your opinions on others just because you don't like the way they dress or wear their hair is so silly and is not acceptable. If someone is wearing something that makes them feel good and happy, let them wear it. If someone looks depressed...guess what.. they probably are! Or maybe they're just having a bad day. Instead of forcing them to be fake and project a life that is perfect and totally unrealistic, encourage them, tell them something good and kind. And instead of telling someone they look tired, take them out to coffee and ask them how they're doing.
I'm trying very hard to switch my mindset on the lives of others. Simple things like a hair color or a choice of clothing, has nothing to do with me. So there is absolutely no reason for me to tell them how to dress or make rude comments behind there back. None of us is perfect, it's time we start accepting and embracing that.
