Society is more obsessed on physical appearance at the moment than any previous times, making it extremely challenging for someone to be themselves and feel good about it. The media imposes an unrealistic expectation of beauty, using female insecurities purely for profit. Simple because “society” says you have to look like this or that to be desirable, millions of people are conditioned to diet, work out, buy the latest make-up, receive cosmetic procedures, etc. The media industry as a whole is a multi billion dollar industry, and the fact that women are constantly being told that they need to look better, feeds into the bottom line of these industries selling the perfect image.
True beauty cannot and should not be defined. It was never meant to be outlined in a perfect set of measurements or a finite list of attributes. Bodies are beautiful at every size. There will always be someone thinner or heavier than you. Someone shorter or taller. Someone with smaller or bigger hips. Someone with a flatter or rounder stomach. Someone older or younger. But there will never be another you. Having the confidence to know that you were born unique and to own that uniqueness is the sexiest thing a woman can do.
Although you can’t change the society’s perception of beauty, you can change your perception of beauty. In the end, someone will always judge you, but who cares what they think? Life is to short to spend living up to someone’s opinion of “beauty,” instead be your own standard of beautiful.
