Featured: ”Embrace Yourself“ NuYou July 2014 《女友》

两个月前美丽美容主编短信来问愿不愿意上镜。

其实我的原则是可免则免。

可是她说了个我不得不说我愿意的理由:想要做一系列不是标准美女的故事。“因为大家现在都想弄得像Angelababy般,根本就是一个模型,大家都忘记了这个世界上有很多种漂亮。”

好吧,怎么说不呢?

让我想起了多年前DOVE的广告。

是的,故事真的是我在自卑中长大:眼睛超小、没有双眼皮、鼻子很厚、身材胖胖,还有脸蛋圆圆。访问时主编问我有没有想过去整容,我说没有,不为其它,因为我怕动刀(一个爱拔牙打针的人其实怕割双眼皮)也不至于如此爱美。唯一在意就是不断被笑胖,还有胸部大(当时十几岁没有多少个女生有胸部)。所以我恨不得长大离开,然后爱上那个不嘲笑有胸部的女生的世界。我当时很难理解为什么一个世界赞扬的东西,另一个世界如此唾弃?

原来,这就是人类文明世界。

然后我就释怀了,我没有再在意别人的眼光,也不管别人说什么。我用另外一种方式去表达自己和证明自己;说穿了也还是自卑,就是那种知道自己这里不行就转行做别的事情的想法。

现在?我觉得自己好幸运,生命如此美丽、身边如此多贵人、学习渐渐成长,现在是人生最满足的时刻。还有,我有我的小眼睛和大大宽宽的心胸,装得下好多好多的完美和不完美。

千万别计较你的不完美,它有时候是一种别人求之不得的好处。

是的,你看到的Cover Photo就是我小眼睛、不完美的照片,可是我很爱。

还有,做人还是不要计较这么多。有时候在懵懂的情况下,不去计较多少收获而去做一件事,往往会发生好事。这次说YES则让我在摄影棚好玩过瘾,兼看到了除了我,这个世界上还有许多不标准但是超有性格的女生,我们都是勇士。十页的故事出来,我满心感动。不只把我们不漂亮都整装成超VOGUE出众,更让每个人的个性盖过外表。

看看这个故事,你会发现团队很用心。感谢可爱的团队!

Such an amazing experience to have worked with the team, and I’m very honoured to be part of this feature. ‘Embrace Yourself’ is a beauty feature by the NuYou team for July 2014 issue. Yes, it talks about how all nine of us here (and many more of you out there) live with the physical imperfection in us, especially in this age and time where aesthetic beauty triumphed all other attributes. This is not a hollow beauty story of some well-celebrated poster girls, but this is a real story about our struggle that so closely related to so many people out there.

Growing up with various comments on my look, I was never a confident child. I find refuge in reading so much because I hate looking up and find someone all ready to tease me. Slowly I find exit through other attributes I know I can do good, I channeled my energy to think nothing about how I look. But again that was no acceptance, that was ignorant. Only when during my late twenties I started to come in terms with myself. Truly accepting the way I look and the person I am. I want to improve my inner strength and be a better person overall, but I vowed not to alter my aesthetic to make other people like me. Now, I could not ask for more. I’m at my happiest state.

Thank you Universe for this self-realisation.

Thank you team, this topic is so dear to my heart.
