So a couple of days ago I wrote something that seems to be pissing a few people off.

The point I was trying to make was that there are more important things in life than looking like a supermodel. Some people have low self esteem because they believe they are not good looking, so whenever someone compliments them, they immediately turn around and say, "no, I'm ugly. You don't know what you're talking about."

A mistake I made was that I put someone's name up as an example. She took it as a personal attack, and I can understand why, but it was not meant as such. So I removed her name, so that others also wouldn't make the same mistake and think I was just singling out one person.

One of my last sentences was, "Stop being so shallow." This is definately a put-down. But it is also a suggestion... learn to like how you are. Every person is good looking to someone else, no matter how ugly you may think you are. So if another person tells you that, you don't have to crush that compliment.

I cannot, nor shall I regret what I have said. So some of you are removing me from your friends list. So be it. I will not retract my statements just to keep friends. That would be shallow of me.
