Oh Dog! DeDe here with another beauty tip to make you look and feel your best!
This week’s tip is to live and let live.
It seems to me that humans are always on the lookout for someone who has said or done something that should be held up to public ridicule.
Don’t believe me? Then check out the website devoted to photos taken of people shopping at Wal-Mart. Oh, but it’s just a bit of harmless fun!
Is it really? Or is it laughing at people who don’t measure up to what YOU think they should look like, dress like, or just be?
The thing is, it’s easier to look at others and ridicule them than it is to look within and see what needs some work. Making fun of others is easy. Accepting the truth about ourselves is painful.
That’s not to say I don’t call out the actions of others when I disagree with them. But there’s a difference in calling out the actions of others and making fun of others.
Making fun of others has the unwelcome side effect of hardening our hearts and making us appear unapproachable. Since happy people are more attractive, it would do us all good to let go of our animosity toward others and let them be.
It’s not as easy as it sounds. Looking down on people who look down on people is just as internally destructive. It’s one of the sneaky ways that “enlightened” people find to avoid looking at themselves while still maintaining a posture of selflessness.
So in order to keep myself open to others and free of anger, most of my focus needs to be on my own problems. Trust me, it’s a full-time job.
Have a great week, and never leave your home without this essential beauty product- A SMILE!
