Jealousy is ugly

2 Oct

People are competitive. That’s part of what got us to the moon. It’s a big part of the reason we have people that can do awesome things that seem like they should be impossible. For example:

For the record, this was the least ‘T&A’ focused video I could find of women doing awesome shit, and that sort of ties in with what I wanted to write about today.

Most people are average looking, that’s exactly what average means. Some people are good looking, which is a nice little bonus in life but doesn’t really help anyone all that much in the grand scheme of things. But then you get the model-level good looking people. They’re people who are so good looking, it’s distracting. For some people, seeing a model-level good looking person makes them self-conscious, and that makes them angry at the model-type person. That anger has a few names but most people know it either as envy or jealousy.

Envy and jealousy are very ugly traits which often trigger people’s built-in drive to compete. I’m no shrink but I’d have to think both jealousy and envy come from insecurity. Insecurity, envy and jealousy can be very ugly traits when they’re revealed to the world. And I mean, downright repulsive.

“Too pretty”

There are two young women in Argentina that showed just how ugly jealousy can become and they really pushed themselves into crazy-bitch territory in doing so. See, these two teenage girls had seen 15 year old Julia Alvarez around town and came to the conclusion that Julia was so attractive, she was ‘too pretty’. What the hell does that mean?

Well, to these girls, Maira (16) and Flor (18), ‘Too pretty’ meant they found Julia so threateningly attractive, they would need to alter her appearance to make her less competitive in the looks department. These two teenaged girls stepped over the threshold into psycho-land when they decided to become knife wielding attackers who told Julia “Everyone says you are pretty. You won’t look pretty when we have finished with you. People will call you Chucky.“, a reference to the character of the same name from the horror movie, Child’s play.

Chucky

Sure, you could use logic and realise that at most, Julia was probably only going to get involved with one guy at a time, maybe even two, leaving the other 3 billion or so available, but that’s useless rational thinking, and there’s no room for rationality in the minds of knife wielding psycho-bitches hell-bent on eradicating beauty from the world. So instead of accepting that there are, in fact, people out there in the world who are better looking than themselves, Maira and Flor used their knives to slash the flesh of a beautiful young woman, over and over, until they were satisfied she was no longer more beautiful than them.

I’ve chosen not to include the more graphic images of Julia’s injuries from the attack, but this one gives you some idea how vicious the attack was.

One of these cuts required 20 stitches alone.

The more gruesome the images are available in this Daily Mail article, but be warned, they’re not pleasant.

Personality matters more

Maira and Flor cut Julia because they thought doing so would make them comparatively more attractive than her. This is solid evidence that they’re very, very confused about what really matters when it comes to being attractive. Most people can get past looking at a scar or two but it’s a lot more difficult to get past the fact that your romantic interest has a bad history of getting jealous and putting knives into people. The fact that these two horrid little trolls couldn’t figure that out for themselves is evidence that they already had very unattractive personalities and the fact that they went through with it makes them about as ugly as you can get.

If you feel threatened by how attractive other people are, that’s because you lack self-confidence. Get out there and start doing what you love and find a way to be so happy about who you are. Focus on having an awesome personality because your personality will stick around a lot longer than your looks. I can’t speak for everyone else but I know personally that I find an average looking woman with an awesome personality far more attractive as a partner than a supermodel with the personality of a goldfish.

Sure, good looks turn heads, but good personalities win hearts.

Don’t

For the sake of the rest of us, please don’t fall into the trap of thinking that looks are something to compete on. Fashion is a competitive world and look how that turns out:

So let’s not go jumping on board that train too damned quick. Yes, it’s nice to look good. Yes, good looking people get a few advantages in life but they also sometimes get attacked by knife-wielding psychopaths, so it’s not all roses. You probably look just fine, and even if you don’t, remember that pretty much everyone ends up finding someone who loves them.

I bet this dude has a HUGE personality.

Some people can see past physical shortcomings.

Even his friend is happy to see they’re finally ready to show their love to the world.

Crazy bitch tip: If you think there are people out there who are ‘too pretty’, put the knife down and speak to a shrink.
