I was too inspired by the strength and goodness of a woman that i had to share it with all of you. Her speech of acceptance will change the views of the world. That whatever pain and hurt you throw to someone who has a good heart, she won’t hesitate to forgive. And instead, convert those feelings into something good.
I suppose you all know or most of you know who Lizzie Velasquez is. Well if you don’t, she’s a 24-year old woman who has a rare condition that prevents her from gaining weight. And because of this rare condition, of course this affected her physical appearance. This lead to a video, calling her the ugliest woman of the world. She discovered that video while she was still in high school. She only wanted to listen to music on Youtube and that simple want lead to something undesirable. A big punch that lead to a big hole in her soul. She then read the comments and every comment was negative. No one even protected her. All the comments were suggesting ways how she can kill herself. Imagine being in high school, that very young age, and receiving all those words that can almost kill you. It’s like you’re walking peacefully in the sidewalk, and somebody just stabbed you continuously. I tried to feel her pain, but i guess it can never amount to what she felt.
Instead of putting a grudge on the world, she became a motivational speaker who can help those who are also in her shoes. And perhaps change those who are doing big damages to others with no reason.
What a cruel world we have. Judging everyone through their appearances without even taking time to look what’s inside of them. I just hope that when you are going to do something or say something to a person who doesn’t deserve it, think about it a million times. You might think that it might be no big thing. But you don’t know how it can affect the person or the victim. You don’t want to put a black ink on your soul because of something not worth it.
