It doesn’t matter whether you are man, woman, or child: You will deal with naysayers who bully you and gossip about your looks, your intelligence, your worth, and most poignantly, your core identity. Of course it hurts, but remember that you can’t be perfect, no one is perfect and the people that are most vocal about your faults are the ones that are probably the most insecure.
Like I told my friend who was being bullied and wanted to talk trash on the woman, “Grown women who bully like teenage mean girls just need a time machine to go back and hug their 16-year-old selves.” Don’t let someone else’s insecurity affect your own sense of security.
We think of Buddha as being against attachment to beauty, and he was, but in the way that beauty was seen as something superficial. Above all you should have faith in yourself as a worthwhile human being: “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
