I'm a media junkie, digital advocate and storyteller. When I'm not working, I'm volunteering my time and expertise because I kind of want to save the world.

People of the internet may think #YouLookDisgusting, but who cares what they think anyway?

From SheKnows Canada
Blogger and filmmaker Em Watson posted makeup-free photos of herself online, and people hated it.

They actually hated her face.

Then she posted photos of herself all done up with perfect makeup.

So Watson created a video to share her experience with people who have struggled with acne, self-confidence or insecurities. On her blog, My Pale Skin, she writes, “I wanted to create a film that showed how social media can set unrealistic expectations on both women and men. One challenge many face today, is that as a society, we're so used to seeing false images of perfection, and comparing ourselves to unrealistic beauty standards that It can be hard to remember the most important thing — You ARE beautiful.”

The video is also a powerful reminder that you can’t please everyone, especially the weird and wonderful people of the internet. So stop trying.
