Part of me wants to shake them until they enter back into reality. Part of me wants to bring them to a mirror and yell, “Do you not see that beautiful human being staring back at you?!” But then again, part of me wants to break down. Our society is so fed up on certain standards.
Women must be stick thin but have big boobs and perfect thighs and butts. It’s a giant contradiction. We have to have straight hair, curly hair, long hair, short hair, brown hair, blonde hair, and on and on…
Rationally, I understand all of this. I see what society is doing to the women of our generation and it kills me. I see the beauty that life is and I see the beauty in each person in the world. But at the same time, I am human. I don’t like looking in the mirror. I want to look like the girls on the covers on magazines and I want to fit in. Don’t we all?
It makes me sick to see so many beautiful women hating themselves.
Love yourself. Love who you are.
