With media creating hype twenty four seven, and the pressure that we face on that same timeline to always look our best, it’s no doubt that their is soo many ‘after-market’ ways to make ourselves look better.
We’ve been made to look one way, in the image of our creators (thanks mom & dad); inyet we find ourselves looking to enlarge or reduce parts of our body, change the color of our skin and eyes, among heaps of others modifications just to fit into what society deems to be desirable.
You would be hard pressed to find someone that hasn’t been caught up in this meaningless cycle at one point in their life. I’m been in it, heck – I still am in it. I think their is a fine line to be walked with taking pride in the way that you look, without becoming obsessed with it.
Wear respectable clothes, brush your teeth, maybe do your hair every once in a while, and for goodness sakes a daily shower, whether you need it or not, goes a long way.
There is soo many different treatments and surgeries out there today, that I think it’s easy for us to overlook how ugly society is really making us. Here is how I’m looking at:
– Conservative – Keeping good hygiene through daily showers, deodorant,etc.
– Riding the line – Getting hair removed by lasers to avoid having to shave excessively
– Extreme – Different surgeries both cosmetic and not
It’s when you are debating getting into the extreme side, that I think you need to step back and think twice to yourself about: “How ugly has society made me”.
If you’re willing to go under a knife to change the way you look, society has done something ugly with the beautiful baby that your parents first brought into this world.
It’s essential to always have a level head on yourself, and to love yourself for the way that you are.
It’s overwhelming the number of people that think that make-up and surgeries,etc are going to change their life. Insecurity and lack of confidence shines through though, and you are still the same on the inside.
Beauty is from the inside out!
