I choose to be happy → Lizzie Velasquez

If you have 12 minutes spare this video serves such an amazing purpose. This girl has gone through so much hatred, her condition led to a viral mockery of her appearance. If you have ever felt self conscious imagine the torture she must have faced going through high school. Being able to dismiss people from defining you is a brilliant quality. What we are perceived as by the superficial people in our lives should have no real impact in regards to our personality.

Lizzie Valasquez who was on talk shows as the “ugliest girl in the world”, says it get’s better. It must have taken a massive amount of courage for her to post this.

Be different does not mean be abnormal. Because there is no such thing as being normal

Labeled ‘World’s Ugliest Woman,’ Motivational Speaker Turns Hate Into Love

Lizzie wants us to ask ourselves, How do we define ourselves?  In a world riddled by appearances, she is the most gorgeous example of how beauty transcends outward appearances, and should be a reflection of our aspirations, successes, and souls.

I am watching Taboo, and one of the women featured has a rare condition that prevents her body from storing fat, although she eats around 5,000 calories per day.  She literally has stress fractures in her feet because of the lack of cushioning, and her life expectancy is unknown.  She has written two books about learning to accept yourself and is an anti-bullying advocate who speaks to school-age children around the United States.  Bless her!

“You are the person in the front seat of your car. You are the one who decides whether your car goes down a bad path, or a good path. You are the one that decides what defines you.”

Once labeled, “The Worlds Ugliest Woman,” Lizzie decided to turn things around and create her own definitions of what she defines as beauty and happiness.
