I’ve always said, “I don’t have ugly friends. Well, I had one once, and it didn’t end well”.
Most people find this flattering or humorous. After all, I certainly don’t mean any malice towards my fellow humans. But every now and then, someone reacts with a bitch-are-you-serious stare. Or instantly launches into a verbal judgment of me – assuming shallowness and other unpleasant personality traits.
Okay, I get it, you are easily offended and wish that everyone was treated with love at all times – and in an ideal world, everyone is. I respect that. But here’s my question, dear person who jumps down my throat, do you find your friends ugly?
Honestly, it’s a fun reverse, because no one ever says no. And I would hope not.
It’s not about being shallow or only caring about how you and your posse appear to the masses. You should find your friends beautiful. Granted some might be more physically striking than others. Or soul-wise more stunning. But ultimately, unless you’re one of those people that surround yourself with others you think of as ugly to make yourself feel good – your friends are most likely attractive.
And there’s nothing wrong with that.
