The Beauty Ideal

I know she is photoshopped, I know, I know…But still I want to look like that!

A few weeks ago I was at the opening of an exhibition called “Smal” (Skinny) and I got quite moved by it. The exhibition was about how young people become affected by the image of beauty which is being given out by the media and other organisations like that. The ideal of everyone being tall, sunburnt and skinny. The most sickest thing about is that being tall and skinny is mainly genetic, and can not be reached with diets, or exercises or self starvation. You just become sick and unhealthy. A tall and skinny ideal is sick, because it is a body type, and it exists more then one body type in the world. Some people are tall and skinny, some are short and skinny, some are a little chubby and tall or chubby or short, or whatever. Everyone is different in one way or another, everyone is unique. What I want to say  is, do not try to be something you’re not. It will just make you more unhappy and ruin your life.

Instead, appreciate what you are and what you’ve got.
