Sometimes in my work on elegantwoman.org or just about everywhere I go, I meet people who are tedious. Reading their superior emails makes me tired. Their backhanded comments are served on a silver platter masked by kindness.
I’m not interested in that kind of etiquette and society that is basically head knowledge filled with airs and pretension. You’ve missed the whole point of the knowledge of books, opera, wine, cheese, art if they are what you use to classify people. I don’t like the way a person is judged by their knowledge of books, opera, wine and art.
Also, these days with social media especially INSTA-STORIES becoming even more prominent and part of our everyday lives, we are being bombarded by the vulgarity of showing off, heavily curated lifestyle presentation and lots of pretension. I’m not sure why is it so important to show every shopping purchase, or every meal, or even your nails.
Ultimately, what do you think these images do? How will it effect the person’s feelings? Why are you saying what you’re saying?
People are people and their feelings matter.
That is more important than being sophisticated.
That is the ULTIMATE, number one characteristic of being classy.
My dear friends, do not let anyone make you feel bad about yourself. In your daily lives, there will always be someone who lets you know they are better than you (more sophisticated, intelligent, wealthy etc.)
Be inspired, not discouraged. Walk away with your head held high knowing you are a woman of value. You are on your own journey, becoming the woman YOU want to be, going after your own passion and dreams. And nobody can take that away from you.
Much love and always rooting for you, love, me.
P.s. I’m going to read a good book or listen to an encouraging message by my pastor to get rid of all the negativity and blah of the day
