Loving Scars

As time changes, so does the view on the perfect body. A beautiful girl is someone with a great body, great looks, and overall great at everything.
Years ago i was involved in a car accident. Luckily i survived and didn't lose my arm. But from that accident i received scars. They made me hate my body even more. i wondered why me of all people. I wanted to be a model and actress. How could i do that with this scars.
Then as i grew up and matured. It hit me, Why can't i be a model? Actress? Why should my scars be an obstacle? They are a part of me, they make me different from the other models. Why? because they are unique. because they are ME. So i sat there thinking. Should i hate my body because it's not not perfect. and dosent fit the standard of beauty. Or should i not care what others think and do what makes me happy.
I decided to do what makes me happy. i began pursuing my modeling and acting careers. It's time that beauty standers changed. You should follow your dream and not care what others say. Do what makes you happy, follow your dream. And LOVE EVERY SINGLE PART OF YOUR BODY. Maybe someday I'll be living my dream of making it big all around the world on modeling and the big screen everywhere. Maybe star in some kpop video and Kdrama and Hollywood.

@jordanhamilton @LizArnone @skee292 @alywoah @TessStevens I feel like you guys would really appreciate this card :)
@isabelbarron Beauty is way deeper than the skin scarred or otherwise. As I delve deeper into Vingle I find more and more heart warming and inspiring stories. You have bared more of yourself in this card than most do in their life. It doesn't matter if you reach your dreams of modelling and acting, because you've shown yourself to be strong, positive and smart. Thank you for sharing.
@buddyesd Thank You.
@IsabelBarron that's how my mom said she felt, exactly but she's beautiful my dad has always loved her and it never bothered us, I guess maybe that's what helped her. like you said baby steps. I'm glad things have worked out for you congratulations :) stories like yours are really inspiring and I know will help those that need encouragement.
@buddyesd I understand where your mother was coming from. After my accident I would wear long sleeve, gloves 24/7. I would even wear it in my house. I came to a point wear not even my parents knew how it looked until I had doctor appointments.. I think I did it because, I thought it was ugly and disgusting. I figured if I thought that way, then others would truly feel that way. But the more I tried to hide it, the mite people would ask what happened and the worse I felt. So I put my self in check. First I started with baby steps, by not covering at home. And before I knew it I was not carrying what others thought and I was showing on my scars to the world.

MBC Strike: What This Means for Kpop Fans
MBC is finally going on strike which is completely not normal for Korea. As you probably know, the working culture in Korea is insane, especially in the entertainment industry where everyone involved (not just the actors) often work 20-23 hours a day. There have recently been un uptick in suicides by writers and producers because of the immense stress put on them. MBC is also known here in Korea to be under the control of bigger powers, such as the old president who was impeached. Rather than sharing the real news, the anchors were forced to spin stories to be positive for the president and to support her because the owners of the station were being put under pressure by the corrupt government. Basically MBC is just bad news, and the workers are sick of it. As of this week, the workers have all stopped coming to work meaning unless something was previously recorded, there will be no news, no radio, no dramas, no nothing, until they get what they want (way better working conditions and probably a way better CEO) Because of this, it looks like a music festival has been cancelled as well. BTS V and Twice Dahyun were going to host it and its line up would have included BTS, TWICE, Red Velvet, B1A4, BTOB, Teen Top, B.A.P, MAMAMOO, GFRIEND, BLACKPINK, iKON, EXID, NUโ€™EST W, Lovelyz, ASTRO, and PRISTIN. To be honest, I don't really care that this was cancelled, as I'd much rather have thousands of people's lives improved than watch a few groups perform one or two songs each that we've already heard before. I'm sad if this was anyone's one chance to see these groups live (like if they were vacationing to korea) but in the long run I think it will help a lot more people than it will inconvenience. Here's to hoping the working conditions of people behind the shows we love so much improve greatly <3
