A journalist in Britain is under fire for writing an essay about being too attractive. Here is what she wrote:
“While I’m no Elle Macpherson, I’m tall, slim, blonde and, so I’m often told, a good-looking woman. I know how lucky I am. But there are downsides to being pretty — the main one being that other women hate me for no other reason than my lovely looks. It is not just jealous wives who have frozen me out of their lives. Insecure female bosses have also barred me from promotions at work. And most poignantly of all, not one girlfriend has ever asked me to be her bridesmaid. You’d think we women would applaud each other for taking pride in our appearances. I work at mine — I don’t drink or smoke, I work out, even when I don’t feel like it, and very rarely succumb to chocolate. Unfortunately women find nothing more annoying than someone else being the most attractive girl in a room. So now I’m 41 and probably one of very few women entering her fifth decade welcoming the decline of my looks. I can’t wait for the wrinkles and the grey hair that will help me blend into the background.”
Slacker and Steve wants to know what the hardest part of being beautiful. Steve knows this happen because when he takes a beautiful woman out all the other women turn on her. Slacker thinks this is stupid and it can’t be that hard to be pretty. He says a lot of people want some disability for people to feel sorry from them.
All I can say is people are weird. It cracks me up listening to people saying how beautiful they are and how they just found this out a few years ago. There are some very beautiful people but this is just them trying to get people to feel sorry for them. Really? Just be happy with who you are and live your life.
Do you think it is hard being beautiful?
