I always thought being pretty must make life easy! Possibly free drinks, free meals, free airtime, lots of attention and if you play your cards right, you get jobs handed to you. Well boy wasn’t I wrong 😱.
Sometimes being physically attractive takes away from your personality because people only become interested in how you look and not always who you are. In the worst case scenario, when you look really hot, some even assume you’re promiscuous.
So in the real sense, you have hundreds of people wanting to know you but less than a dozen people who actually care about you. By design, you get into relationships that don’t always materialize as hoped for not because you’ve become ugly without make up but because pretty is like fashion and if a man doesn’t like you for who you are, they will probably find another thing more appealing.
Sadly, no one remembers the man so the blame is on you, taumfwa. In so being by design, you become closed up and reveal less of yourself in the process and you develop an attitude not because you’re cheeky but as a defence mechanism from all the nonsense around you. You keep so many things to yourself because your levels of trust are very low. People will always see the pretty face but not the ugly things you keep bottled inside. You end up finding satisfaction in strangers, social media clicks, movies or songs as your go to guides.
Friendships become more like partnerships in competition so you can’t fully rely on them for council. Of course there’s a couple of real friends and these you’ll try to hold on like your life depended on it and really it does. Suicidal thoughts peer in once in a while but then, you have ambitions to fulfil plus suicide is just too darn hard to pull through. You know what my friend, you’re not alone.
There’s a world of pretty girls with thousands of followers yet feel so lonely. However, I don’t have a lasting solutions but I have one option that will provide you all the solution you’ll ever need, give God a chance. Chase a dream, set some goals, stop competing with people, stop trying to please them, know yourself, be yourself and no matter what, love life!!!
I’m not a pretty girl, I’m a poet, I learn emotions like they were my own, that’s my gift.
