In an online community, one netizen shared a post explaining the hardships she’s been facing because of BLACKPINK‘s Jennie.
In the post, the netizen introduced herself as a 24-year-old woman who currently has a boyfriend.
I’m a woman and I’m 24 years old this year. I’m currently dating a guy who’s the same age as me. The title of this post might be a little provocative, but I’m posting this because my heart feels ill.
She then went on to share that she used to be a fan of Jennie until she learned that her boyfriend was a fan as well.
I used to like BLACKPINK’s Jennie. I used to watch her close-up cam videos when I was alone. But ever since I learned that my boyfriend watched her videos on YouTube often, I didn’t feel so good. I think it’s an inferiority complex.
The netizen confessed that she’s been having a difficult time ever since she started comparing herself.
People say you need to separate yourself from celebrities, but I’m never going to be as pretty as Jennie even if I die and come back to life. Ever since I learned that my boyfriend searched pretty celebrities like Jennie, my confidence went down.
We fight a lot because of this, but it never goes anywhere. How should I be thinking about this? I don’t know why I keep comparing and breaking myself down. Please help.
Some of the comments to the post include “I totally understand. You feel defeated“, “Don’t cut yourself down“, “Why bother comparing yourself to Jennie?“, “If it’s too hard, it might be better for you to break up“.
