If you’re a woman, you are most likely familiar with the dreaded, sinking feeling of self-consciousness. I feel it myself. The voice in your head that says, “I look so fat in this” is something my brain has, many a day, uttered as well. And that voice grows ever louder when we compare ourselves to our counterparts on TV and in the movies. They just look so perfect, don’t they?
Here is a sampling of recent women’s magazine articles (print and online):
(Diet Tips) Six Ways To Make Your Bikini Your Bitch
(Sex Tips) Leg Sex: It’s a Thing
(Beauty Tips) Are You Applying Your Skincare All Wrong?
(Celebrity-Inspired Tips) Nicole vs Anne in The Battle of Bleached Hair- Who Wore It Best?
So you’re not perfect? Neither is anyone else!
Ladies, stop comparing yourselves to the women on the cover of magazines. No one looks that perfect!
Notice how most of the “improvements” made to the celeb’s bodies are done to get rid of wrinkles, as well as to make them appear thinner. Also notice that ALL the photos are of women. Hmmm… What is Hollywood trying to tell us?
