Society is ugly.
Not you.

Beauty is defined by
How you act.
Not by the number on the

Starving doesn't work.
Purging doesn't work.
Pills don't work.

The girl you see
In the mirror is
Just the way she is

Don't get upset because
You don't match up
To the media's

Cutting won't work.
Crying won't work.
Dying won't work.

Remember this:
Society is ugly.
Not you.

Society is one the major leading causes of mass murders, eating disorders, and suicides.

When it comes to society you have to work at simply not caring, who gives a shit what that crowd over there thinks... Chances are they are not half of what you are inside.

Let the haters live their worthless lives, find something that makes you happy and no matter how opposed others are you fight for it, and you live it!

Society is the reflection of the people. Distorted and grotesque one, perhaps, but a reflection none the less.

society is hideous, ugly doesn't even begin to describe it...I have struggled with anorexia and feelings of going away forever, but I have an amazing person in my life now and I am doing a lot better, I have begun to gain weight and the best part: I FEEL GREAT...the sad thing is that his niece (10 years old) saw me one day and noticed how skinny I am and lifted her shirt to show her belly and said that she is so fat, and she wishes she was like me (now I am gaining weight but i am still really under weight)...I kept telling her that she was perfectly fine, and that she doesn't need to worry about that stuff...such a shame, this society is just, ugh...

This is so beautiful, and so true. Society is based around vanity which is completely ridiculous considering we have these huge things inside our head that we could use to see a persons personality before their outer shell.

It's short, but it means so much. Society does make many people believe that beauty is just one certain look, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder and as long as you believe you are beautiful, that should be all that matters.
