I experienced this yesterday in the middle of a bar and it was loud and awful and humiliating. It got to me way more than it should have, and I’m annoyed with myself for letting the opinion of a drunk, rude stranger upset me.
Beauty is subjective, and in the eye of the beholder, so ofcourse not everyone will find you attractive, but being called ugly is still not nice. What has made me feel better has been thinking about how everyone is beautiful in their own way, either outwardly or on the inside, and one person’s negative opinion about you should not bring you down when you can dwell on the positive ones instead.
This Roald Dahl quote explains it perfectly:
Ahh, why did I not think of this yesterday? It’s always easier to think of witty comebacks when the moment has passed, so I’m posting this as a reminder to myself and to anyone who needs to see this right now:
You are great, and those who go out of their way to put others down are probably doing so to shift attention from their own insecurities. So don’t let them get to you!
This little girl is 4 and she already knows how to handle things, so cute!
