The real reason everyone is slowly killing themselves. How beauty, self confidence, success and happiness are all related.
What causes someone to look at themselves in the mirror and hate what they see? Why do people go to glorious lengths to get thinner, smarter, and better looking than their fellow neighbour? Why does everyone else seem so much better?
The REAL answer.
We are unhappy. We slouch around with our daily activities dragging ourselves from one activity to the rest. We stand in front of the mirror and pick away at ourselves, every flaw, every imperfection for all we see is someone thats not good enough. Believing you are not good enough is the first step towards a terrible path.
Why do we think we are not good enough? We are jealous.
Jealousy is why the world is unhappy.
We see a fit young woman through social media, what is the first thing we do? COMPARE. We wish we had her body. Why?
From an evolutionary standpoint humans want to be the fittest for survival but, not many realize that times have come far along since the Palaeolithic era.
What is so hard about appreciating someone for their achievements? As humans, no matter how hard we try we just can't seem to let it go, of that persons success. That success makes us feel inferior and we start to compare, so much so that we could eventually wither away.
Inferiority is another step towards a destructive path. Depression comes after that and when we become depressed we scrutinize ourselves and continually beat our selfs up because we "suck".
Society needs to learn to say, "Oh, look at him, he's accomplished so much, good for him." and get over it.
