I don't think beautiful people should be hated, anymore than the next person should be hated, but I do think that if someone has both beauty and a weaker character/inflated ego, that they can be some of the most insufferable people to be around. Why? Because they have little to no empathy or humility, and life tends to revolve around them and their needs.
But to be fair, this can occur with people who aren't beautiful as well. You can be exceptionally talented in the arts, or sports, or have a high intellectual ability, too, and still act this way. If you take pride in those things (and that talent consumes you) then you can be really snotty and not a nice person in general to be around. And I think we've all met those types of folks. Lol!
Thing is, humility can make all the difference in the world. When a person realizes that there are others who are as equally talented or beautiful or smart or gifted or sporty, or even realize and appreciate folks who are better (or worse) than them, and when it no longer becomes a "competition" with them, then those folks become inspirations rather than frustrations.
Arby, that was so beautifully explained.
