Don’t be a Hater…

The most fascinating thing happened recently. It isn’t really anything new, but I guess with all the writing and thinking and dreaming I’ve been doing lately, it really just stood out for me.

I posted some of my boudoir client’s images on the blog last week – the Fabulous Miss J (link may not be work safe if you work for someone who doesn’t like photos of hot women) – and more than once I had a woman say to me something along the lines of “She is just so gorgeous. I hate her.” *

Women! WTF??? What is up with that? Why do we do it???

I promise, I’m guilty of it too. And it is so wrong! Seriously. Yes, she is gorgeous. You are gorgeous too. I am gorgeous. None of us are not without flaws, but our beauty just shines to the world. It just requires someone to see it.

Why do we have to tear each other down? Do you really hate someone because they are beautiful? What does that say to our kids when they hear us talk like that? Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we lifted one another up and supported each other?

I’m all about the love … don’t hate someone because they are beautiful, or because of the things that they have. They worked hard for those things. You can too. I’ll be here to celebrate your awesomeness!

* I heard a lot of people say how beautiful she is. But those negative comments just jumped out at me.

I’m glad to see this post. The word “hate” is a strong word, reserved for our most intense dislikes and deepest aversions. Why do some people find it fashionable to hate so much? Beats me!

I think that is just the way that the world works Christine. Jealousy is transparent, and manifests itself in many ways.

Nice post. It’s something I’ve thought about often.

It’s funny how people say nasty things in a joking way (hating beautiful or thin women, complaining about kids or marriage)without realizing the negative effects it has.
