I didn't click on it because I was so disgusted. I imagined it would show celebs without make-up, or on vacation wearing bathing suits, or a picture that caught someone in the middle of a sneeze.
Obviously, there is a two-fold issue I have with this.
The first was - Who in the world authorized that article? What were they thinking? Have they no conscience? Being someone who is constantly worried about whether I hurt someones feelings or not, I can't get over what some people have no problem writing or talking about, and how spreading that filth for the whole world to see doesn't concern them.
I thought about all the good in the world and the feel-good articles and stories that get a small section in the corner of a newspaper or computer screen...if any space at all. If we were seeing this stuff all the time instead of junk, it would make such a positive impact, especially on our youth.
Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.
My second issue with this is - those of us who read and fall prey to this stuff. In the instance like the Top Ten article I mentioned above, we're either sucked into watching it like a train wreck and feeling sorry for them; or worse -- wondering what the world thinks of us and how we look. I wonder what my daughters would think if they constantly read articles like this one. Would they want to wear make-up, go on a diet, or quite possibly, be afraid to go out in public?
With all of that being said, there are some things in the news that just beg for attention. I came across this soon after the first article. This might possibly be the best example of what I tried to say above.
Bieber. Are you for real?
Someone tell him that he doesn't need to pull these ridiculous antics. With all of his fans, money, and material things, something still seems missing. Am I right, Biebs?
