Video: Love yourself, you are beautiful, you are not disgusting

Em, the beauty vlogger behind My Pale Skin, published a video with a very powerful message last week: Love yourself. You are beautiful. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. Not even yourself.

For three months she posted images of herself without makeup on social media, she then put the comments she received together in her latest video, which she titled You Look Disgusting. The clip is disturbing and sad, yet brave and thought provoking. It is shocking what people think is acceptable on social media and  it is particularly distressing  to imagine that these very people feel the need to express their opinions in such a cruel and public way. Sometimes it’s just better to go with grandma’s advice, if you’ve got nothing nice to say, say nothing at all! There is plenty more I would like to say about the decaying state of our society and online bullies, but Em’s video really speaks for itself…have a look.
