OBSERVATION

You can't teach self-acceptance by telling someone to live off the comments of individuals. You like my outfit? Good, I don't care, you don't like my outfit? Good, who cares? I don't. 


Everyone is being watched at some point their life, whether you're being looked at through a surveillance camera at Target as you browse for Christmas decor or as an infant while you slither out of your mother's uterus at the hospital.

That is probably why everyone is so obsessed with perfection - myself included (I worry about simple things such as wrinkles, chipped nails, my waistline, which is truthfully not even a true problem compared to 21st century issues), it makes you over-think about comments that come from a brainless human being.

Before you educate someone about ignoring vile comments, teach them to disregard the "gratifying" ones. You can't teach self-acceptance by telling someone to live off the comments of individuals. You like my outfit? Good, I don't care, you don't like my outfit? Good, who cares? I don't.

As cliché as it sounds  - do you. Mind your own business, societies words should just roll off your back. You should, however, recognize that you're part of this society, and you need to think about your daily activities and ask yourself if you're, in fact, the perpetrator.
