ugly.

Most people don’t think Kim Kardashian shits.

But, I can promise you that at the end of the day, Kim K. finds herself on her toilet pushing out a monstrous dump.

And, I can promise you that it probably smells awful.

The same awful way anyone’s shit smells… because it’s shit.

While many people admire Kim K. (for reasons I don’t understand), there are a lot of things about her that are ugly.

Like the fact that she shits… just like you and I do.

You may be wondering, why is this weirdo talking about Kim Kardashian’s defecations?

Well, because lately I have been thinking a lot about confidence and overall happiness.

And, I have come to realize that much of people’s confidence and overall happiness is broken or completely non-existent because they are comparing themselves, their success, their looks and their wallets to people like Kim K.

Individuals, whom we as a society, have decided to place high up on a pedestal and call perfect, beautiful, successful, [fill in the blank].

But, what we tend to forget is that, just like you and I, they take shits.

And, just like you and I, they have bad breath sometimes.

And, just like you and I, their armpits stink if they don’t put on deodorant.

And, just like you and I, they have insecurities they want to hide.

And, just like you and I, they are a little ugly.

And, just like you and I, they are human.

So, I would venture to say that the first step to discovering greater confidence and overall happiness is simply realizing whoever you are comparing yourself to is just like you –– a little ugly, very human and certainly full of shit.
