Tyranny of Passing III

Resentment “whispers continually: I can forgive every thing, but not what you are, - that you are what you are-that I am not what you are-indeed that I am not you”.

 I have encountered this a number of times in a couple of different manifestations. There are those of us that are passable, and some absolutely gorgeous! The vast majority of us however are not.

I have seen the resentfulness of those that are.

I have witnessed the obsession and desire for plastic surgery by those who really do not need it.

I have seen this in the envy of a woman and her appearance.
