Body Image

1 Comment

In society, we have a distorted image of what we are supposed to look like. We are told that we have to be skinny and tall with long blonde hair when the average woman is 5’4. So most women feel like they cannot live up to the standards that society gives us. With all the photo shop out there, we think we are ugly when we see these picture perfect women on billboards. This is something that every girl struggles with. No matter how much confidence a girl has, it is still impossible to feel like the prettiest girl in the world. Why can’t society tell us that the short girls that don’t wear make up are just as pretty? Why can’t we say that every woman has their own kind of beauty. I wish that was possible, but this world has turned into business and marketing. We put these things on billboards because we can make money off of it. It is scary to think that money is more important than self-affirmation and confidence.
