Viva La Difference

Just after this woman jogged past I overheard a large woman commenting to her husband, "Did you notice how her skin jiggled?"

I did not like the comment, but caught myself making similar mental notes about a buff guy I passed a few minutes later. Does it make me feel better to put another person down? No. On the other hand it does level the playing field a little. I tend to put "beautiful" people on a pedestal and am then afraid to talk to them because they are "better than me." When I notice flaws in others, hopefully I can use the awareness to realize that they are only human - just like me. Neither of us is better, we are simply different.
