I'm sure you have heard about the girl who is not pretty enough to appear in front of the world singing her heart out at the Olympics opening ceromony. Now that does not help anyone's confidence, right? It's not even show-business-related, is it? I've posted and written some stuff about Chinese and Materialism, and judgemental, they can be. Sticks and stones... and all that, well, it's just not true. It takes a long time to get rid of that kind of humility psycologically.
