Farrah Abraham, reality TV star who became famous for her stint on MTV's show, Teen Mom, said that she got a nose job and chin implant so that people will stop criticizing her. She supposedly was "annoyed" by all the comments about her face.
What Farrah doesn't know yet is that the criticism will not stop. Once you become famous, you'll forever be under scrutiny by the public. You know what? Now Farrah will be criticized by people who will say that she's fake and insecure for getting the plastic surgery. The plethora of comments on this article at Huffington Post is already filled with judgments about how she looked better before all the plastic surgery.
What I've come to learn is that you can't please everybody and not everyone is going to like who you are or what you do. There will always be haters out there who don't feel good about themselves so they criticize and judge others in order to feel better. There will always be people out there who think you "should" do this or that. If you listened to all that negativity, it would drive you mad.
Granted, I'm not a celebrity so I probably will never know how it feels to have millions of people talk trash about you on Twitter or blogs. I probably would never go on social media. I'd also have my publicist filter all the BS that's published in magazines.
I'm not here to judge Farrah Abraham for what she's done to her face. I really could care less, actually. What I hope she'll come to understand is that her happiness and confidence is something that starts within. She can't count on a nose job or praise from the public to feel good about herself. And if she does feel good about herself, more power to her...but how long will that really last? Next year she might find something else about her body to be unhappy about. Thus, the cycle continues.
Bottom Line: Love for yourself is not dependent on what you look like on the outside. The more you chase this illusion of "perfection", the more miserable you will be.
