Overcoming Criticism

John Wayne 30th Annual Odyssey Ball

It has become very common to hear stories about celebrities getting criticized by media and their “fans” for their appearance. Whether it is a new hairstyle, a fur coat, or their weight, stars have a lot of pressure put on them to try to please everyone. Some seem to ignore it, others lash out in defense, and sadly some conform to what is expected if them. Recently, I heard a story about the singer Pink who was receiving hate for gaining some weight and according to media, looked heavy in a dress worn to a fundraising event a few weeks ago. Her response is inspiring and classy, simply stating that she feels healthy and beautiful and that is all that matters! Read the full article here. I hope that we can all take a cue from the singer and shut down any negativity that is thrown our way, realizing that people usually criticize the things that they feel threatened by, and as long as we are happy with our own lives, that is all that matters.
