Teen Mom Farrah Abraham has had a rough couple of months. She's been criticised for her music video, her children's book, her plastic surgery, and most recently, her decision to wax her 3-year-old daughter's eyebrows, so it's no surprise that the young mom is looking for a respite, a safe haven from the haters, if you will. Farrah tweeted on Sunday that she finally found relief in some "sane" and "positive" people at church.
She went on to say that she hopes the world changes (or, #changes, as she writes) to be more supportive of her wildly misguided life decisions.
Fact of the matter is, nothing's going to change for Farrah, people aren't going to be more "positive" toward her until she's more positive about herself.
When a beautiful woman in her early 20s decides that she needs 10 Gs worth of plastic surgery, then sells the story to a tabloid, that's not exactly exemplary of self-love. And when a mom thinks her toddler's "unibrow" needs to be removed, that's not really showing any tenderness.
Through her plastic surgery we see that she doesn't like her body, her self, and through her daughter's eyebrow plucking, we see that she doesn't like her toddler's, either.
Farrah's been putting out a lot of negativity and that's what she's getting back. It's an old adage I truly believe in -- no one can love you until you fully love yourself, and vice versa -- and Farrah seems like she's a long way from showing herself compassion, understanding, and love, and a far way away from receiving that in return.
I'm glad that Farrah's finding some friendly faces at church, but as Gandhi said, Farrah needs to be the change she wishes to see in the world before she starts asking others to make an adjustment.
