Watching the latest episode of "This World Only Cares About How It Benefits It And Makes It Look Good" taught me another eye opening lesson...... That as long as you (in this case) shut up and vault, you will continue to be praised by the world. For it to be public knowledge that judges want to judge you on the standards of the lesser competitors because they are scared that the degree of difficulty that you have worked so hard to master could endanger the safety of the others would be difficult for anyone to handle. Especially when you are 24 years old and have worked extremely hard, while missing out on all of the things that others are able to enjoy, to master your craft JUST for the highest stage in the athletic world.
I am just going to lay it out plain and simply. If I have to lower my standards for others to feel better about themselves, guess what, I am quitting too. What is the point?! Your mental health is FAR MORE IMPORTANT than people's momentary satisfaction. Because tomorrow they will be riding another fandom train. I am glad that Ms. Biles stepped away from the unfair treatment that has been made public knowledge. And that DOES NOT lessen who she is. For anyone that chooses not to support her decision to care for her mental health.... you know what to do. #Unapologetically #UnapologeticAF #Simone #SimoneBiles
