You may have seen, or even participated in an Instagram beauty contest….
Did you win? Lose? Feel good or bad about yourself??? Actually, it doesn’t matter whether you win or not, these beauty contests are not good for anyone!
Have you rated other people? How did it make you feel?
There are THREE reasons that you should say NO to online beauty contests:
1. Online beauty contests put another person (sometimes even an anonymous person) in charge of rating and ranking you. Who needs that! You should be in charge of choosing the opinions that you care about.
2. Winning can make you feel special for a very short time, but in REAL LIFE, it won’t last. Real relationships and real opinions from real people that REALLY care about you is all that matters.
3. In these contests, rating other people might make you feel powerful for one minute, but in REAL LIFE, you will probably feel bad if someone else’s feelings are hurt by your rating.
Sooooo….use your social media ONLY for good!!
