Me : Yee biarin emang aku jelek! Iting juga gag pernah bilang aku cantik, tapi dia selalu bilang aku lucu. haha
Mr. O: Semua wanita itu cantik, gag ada yang jelek yoo.
Itu sekilas percakapan saya dengan seorang teman tempo hari. Persisnya seperti apa, saya sedikit lupa. Mungkin itu percakapan yang sudah sering kita dengarkan dengan berbagai versi dari dulu. Siapa syh wanita yang gag suka dibilang cantik di dunia ini gitu lho? But somehow, walaupun Iting jarang banget bilang saya cantik tapi saya seneng-seneng aja tuh. Saya emang gag mempan digombalin. hehe … ya paling dia cuma bilang saya ini lucu dan gag ngebosenin. Justru saya lebih suka dibilang kayak gitu deh. The media says that people should look a certain way, to dress a certain way but is that the only way to be pretty or beautiful? hmmm ….
If you chose to dress different from others are you ugly?
If you have a different shape from others, are you ugly?
If you have different set of values are you a bad person?
If you enjoy being treated as an individual do you have the right to be treated so?
If you don’t like the same thing everyone else does, are you bad?
The answer to these questions vary.
The media says that we must look a certain way that certain unacceptable behaviors are acceptable. Well are they? No. What I am saying here is that everyone is special, everyone is unique, and everyone is different, each with his or her own purpose. It is acceptable to not be stick thin and be pretty. So, I enjoy being treated as an individual and speak up when I think something is wrong. I have found a way to speak up. I notice that a lot of people are under the impression that only one image can be beautiful but the image is taken by different photographers in different angles. Meaning that not every image is the the same. Every one person is not meant to look same. Everyone is different in VALUES, STYLE, and BODY TYPE.
The point of this is to let people know that everyone is beautiful.
I’m beautiful in my own way because God makes no mistakes.
