• A Lesson Brought to You by My Sister

    Date: 2012.04.22 | Category: Uncategorized | Tags: ,,,

    Recently I was talking to someone else about how much I don’t like Zooey Deshanel. Her hair is always flippin’ perfect, she’s an actress AND a singer, she’s beautiful, thin, dainty, every guy loves her, and she can’t pull off “dorky” because she’s too adorable. Come on, Zooey, dorky by definition means awkward. With your looks and personality the closest you can be is vivaciously zany.

    Then I learned on top of all of that she has a successful blog, too!  *Turns green from head to foot*

    Right in the middle of my loathe parade over every aspect of Ms. Deshanel I remembered something my sister said when she caught herself doing the same thing: “Oops my insecurity is showing!”

    That statement has been the most honest, awakening string of words I have come across in my life. That is exactly what is happening when I’m tearing Zooey Deshanel or anyone else down. I’m being insecure and trying to make myself feel better. No one thinks better of me if I speak my mind and really it doesn’t make me feel better to think in such a way. It leaves me very bitter.

    So the lesson here for the both of us is that whenever we’re feeling envious and hateful toward someone we need to check our behavior. Is that person really so awful or is our insecurity showing?

    PS–Ms. Deshanel, I hope you have a long and happy life continuing to do all the things you love to do.
