Last week one of the world’s top male models was found dead, having either fallen or jumped from his hotel balcony in Milan. Probably suicide.
Taken from Daily Mail:
“An anonymous posting by a fellow model on the fashion website Issac Likes shed light on the giddy world and said: ‘People think we are young and beautiful and rich and happy. But we’re not. We go to castings and the directors take one look at us and then we’re dismissed.
‘You spend your whole life wondering what’s wrong with you. Why didn’t I get that job? You’re competing with your friends, you’re away from your family. The pressure is huge. It’s not the fairytale life people would expect.’”
The world says pursue beauty, but even the beautiful don’t feel lovely. We must go somewhere else for this need, to an unconditional love that doesn’t see deformities or wrinkles. We can be rescued from all of this. The Almighty waits to give you significance. God says that beauty has much more to do with character and heart than body shape and hair color.
I think we need to spend less time in front of mirrors and more time going for walks with people we love. That will make you feel beautiful.
