“Are you being judged or bullied because of your appearance or intelligence?”
We are judged by our appearance and beliefs daily. Two shows I remembered watching a few years ago: The Swan and Extreme
Makeover, were popular. People are willing to have surgery and suffer pain to be beautiful. Amazingly, I loved these shows, and I
was excited for these people. So, what is the problem?
Many people try to live up to the beauty industries' standard of beauty, also Social Media, friends, and family. Those who do not are, at
times, teased, or ignored. An applicant for a job may be overlooked purely on looks or beliefs, even though they are qualified for the
job. I have ignored others based on looks. However, after getting to know the person, I realized I was wrong.
Feelings of ugliness, rejection, low self-esteem, and unhappiness can be triggered when children are teased, bullied or not accepted.
Bullying not only happens in schools, but, in churches and the workplace. Unresolved hurt can lead to certain disorders, school
shootings or even suicide. These feelings seem to gets worst in the teens. These symptoms could disappear, if a caring mentor is at their
Children are bullied every day in schools. Some have no one to defend or help them. It would be great to make it our duty as adults
and parents to see that this stops.
I heard about two teenagers this year alone, who committed suicide because they were bullied. They only wanted to fit in, to be
considered cool or nice looking as the other kids. These were two beautiful lives that were wasted. Parents, we must pay attention and
listen to our children.
Destini, the Chocolate Princess, reveals the suffering that a girl named Destini experienced. She was bullied in school and repeatedly
told she was ugly. She wanted to kill those who were making her feel ugly, and she wanted to commit suicide. See how the love,
attention, and wisdom of her adoptive parents and Stephan saved her life.
Please get a copy of this book and encourage others to get one. You can use it as a fundraiser also. Some teens or adults may be hurting
and need to love themselves. They may have a family member who is hurting. Susan Hoover, a school teacher in Avon, IN, wrote,
"Destini the Chocolate Princess, transcends all races and colors. It teaches us that beauty means many things. From heartache to
triumph, the story reiterates that we all have the same wants and needs, although we do not look alike." Add to Cart
I once knew a teen, who committed suicide, he thought he was ugly, yet he was handsome. Tears fill my eyes, just thinking about it.
Maybe there was something I could have done or said to give him a reason to live, but, I did not know his pain at the time. If only he
realized how awesome he was. If only he had an outlet or he knew someone who really cared.
People and children are hurting right now, and they need encouragement. My book Destini, the Chocolate Princess, encourages young
and old to accept themselves. A reader said she thought she was the only one who experienced Destini’s story. I told her I wrote it to
let people know they are not alone. A young lady said she identified with the character; it helped her realize how awesome she is. An
adult said this book helped her from day-to-day.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
