What I think ugly is.

I wear contacts, I wear make-up whenever I meet up with people, I straighten my hair every day, I wear non-fitting jumpers and leggings. Without my contacts and straightening my hair, I would be considered ugly.

Um, ugly is a powerful word and is used too often. Yeah I know, I don’t look my best on a Sunday morning but who cares? It doesn’t mean that I’m ugly.

My mum use to tell me that looks don’t matter, it’s what is ย in the inside which counts. I use to roll my eyes whenever I heard that quote because it hit something in my chest like a punch. I have no idea why.

Search up ‘BBC News.’ I bet you can see something about death, murder or the innocent dying. That’s what ugly is.

In this beautiful world, there is some ugliness. I think everyone has a bit of ugly in them; in looks or personality.

I look bad today; I didn’t bother wiping my make-up off yesterday as it was really late and I was walking around like a dead zombie. To be honest, I’ve only just woken up now (at 3 in the afternoon) as I have a painful headache and my breath stinks.I guess that counts as ugly.

Ugly is the pain in people and the world. It’s what makes our world, a beautiful world because if we didn’t have ugliness, it would be boring. We wouldn’t know what beautiful was.

So in a way, ugly is good. It’s what keeps me going because I wouldn’t know what beautiful was and I live for beautiful things.

Thank you for taking your time to read this and remember ugly can be good,

    Exactly! Special things wouldn’t be special without the bad things. They are a lift of the mood from such a low level below. Thats what makes it so special! But if it was your birthday every day, it’s not that exciting XD It’s normal. I love this message!
