EveryBODY is beautiful

by ElsaBlogger2017

Her legs are longer, her smile is brighter and even her teeth are whiter. We've all been there before; you're looking through a magazine and as you see yourself, you feel depressed because your hips are just too wide, your skin too blemished and your lips too thin to ever be one of these women. But no one can be because they don't exist. OK, so yes, the models are real people, but the image of them is not. These images have been edited more times than your text message to that guy you really like. Yet, we are still encouraged, no, told by the media that this is how we should look. This is what is beautiful. And apps like 'FaceTune' target us, showing us that using their face editing app we too can acquire such looks. But what happens when the phone isn't there and you see just you in the mirror. Does it feel enough?

It should. Rather than blaming ourselves, starting crazy diets and cringing at every photo we're in, we need to stop trying to achieve these impossible standards of what is supposedly beautiful and embrace our own unique beauty. Beauty which means you may have got your big nose from your dad but it has been passed down from generation to generation like a family heirloom. Beauty which means a 'bikini body' is simply you in a bikini. Beauty which means you are not afraid to go out in the sun because it'll darken your skin, because this is part of who you are. And whether it's a freckle on your elbow or a birthmark on your back, it's almost like a physical stamp, your own personal trademark to say this is what makes me individual, what makes me, me! So, enjoy being you, smile at the world and let your unique beauty shine through.

How can we feel good about the way we look, even when the media try to make us feel bad?

as far as i can tell, beauty is inner rather than listening to negative and rude comments coming from disrespectful persons we should focus on how to grow in science personal developpement, self care and wellbeing

First of all, in my opinion, inner beauty essential than external beauty, we don’t need to care about the negative comments by anyone, even they say ‘you are ugly’, you can totally ignore those negative comments, nobody can criticise other people appearance, whereas the people who criticise other one is uglier

I think that everyone should look only the way they want. You shouldn't try to look like somebody, you should be yourself. Also, if someone tell something bad about your appearance, just don't listen to his opinion and keep being yourself.

First of all, I think of it as accepting your appearance and appreciating/being grateful of what you have amd maintaining what your parents and God gave you. That is a pretty complicated thing for a human to be content with what you possess as we always desire something that's greener on the other side of the fence". One should first of all remeber about hygiene like proper bath, exercise, diet or sleep. The basics. You can embrace your imperfections but if you do nothing to tresure your body that is so wrong to me. For instance, you want to look slim, but will damage your health by binge eating junk food or if you have skin problems, that can be fixed by referring to a dermatologist or following a proper diet but you better complain how unfortunate life is? I'm speaking from my personal experience when a friend of my was only whining but did nothing to change it...those are some deeper problems though.

Everyone should appreciate own appearance and to be confident about it. If you want to have more beautiful body c'mon, go to the gym and shape your body accoding to your taste. You also should eat healthy food in order to be healthy and have nice skin, hair, nails. It depends on you how you will look. You can do it. I am sure. C'mon!

I think that beauty is objective, you may not think that you are beautiful in the place you live but you will be beautiful in another place in the world, there is no need to compare to other people

Submitted by Deivid_ARP on Tue, 04/14/2020 - 17:17

in this world, the technological media can be from your greatest friend to your greatest enemy. The best option to feel good about yourself is to value yourself, knowing that we are unique and inrerepetible. we shouldn't compare other people, we should thank God for creating ourselves and for having a unique beauty.

I consider that it is important that each woman values ​​herself as she is, that she learn to love her body and learn to accept what each one has or what God gave to each one. It is essential not to be influenced by what social networks want to change from people making an individual different from what he really is, later on you will not be satisfied with what they have become and it is not really reality.

I believe that everything we see is a stereotype. However, we can notice that lately we see models that integrate what it´s to be a real woman: with "imperfections". That in reality they aren´t. It´s only what make us be ourselves.

We are all beautiful, We have to not care about what other says and just be our self since we are all unique and beautiful in our way PLEASE understand that we are not the same.

Submitted by carlazubieta3 on Wed, 02/05/2020 - 18:52

there is a phrase that seems very true to me "i am perfect being imperfect" and i think itb is very true since nobody in this world, and we simply classify a person as perfect by the absurd stereotypes that we ourselves have created.

I think that all the people of the world are beautiful because each person have a different characters that are unique

I think you need to have more confidence, if you think you are beautiful, you are beautiful. Do not think that you are ugly, or you will become more and more ugly. Something you are born with is difficult to change, all you need is to love yourself.

I think beauty is something subjective and diverse and therefore we should not worry about being a "standard of beauty"

Nowadays, Society and mainly stereotypes have forced us to believe that being thin, have perfects hips or mayb bosoms, that's our definition of a perfect body, right? But the true fact is that everybody, rather all bodies are P E R F E C T just in the way they are. My message to u is LOVE URSELF, bcs no one is going to love urself for u. You are allowed to slim down for ur health or just bcs u want, but always by yourself, no for the other people for Y O U. Love urself and don't treat people as they don't are beautiful bcs ALL in their own way are. That's what our society don't do, they just judge the others for their bodies not knowing that We all are beautiful. HAve a nice day and enjoy your lifes to the fullest

No one on the earth has a perfect beauty, and neither am I. Don't be shy when you look at yourself, be more positive! For me, the most beautiful woman in this world is a woman who always smiles, even though they are not good-looking.

Everyone is different. Many people get affected by the "wonderful" photos , and lot of them think that they have to look in the same way. That's wrong because none of us are the same face or body. If everyone looks the same, the world would be random. Just be yourself.

Submitted by 4a6c0080 on Mon, 04/15/2019 - 14:40

Since we born, we all look different, that make us unique so that I considerate that we should accept our original appearance, we shouldn’t try to change ourself to become others standard. If we go to change our looking our parents might get depress. The things all we need to do is accept what we already have and love ourself .

I think everyone is the no.1 in this world. You were born with your characteristic. So you can be yourself leisurely and don't care about other people's opinion. . Everyone is the best child in every parents heart. Plz cherish and Count your blessings.

I think you need to have more confidence, if you think you're beautiful, you're beautiful. Do not think you're ugly, or you'll become more and more ugly. Something you're born with is hard to change, all you need is to love it and yourself. Enjoy being "you", and you'll have a happier life.

Everyone is an individual. Be more confident. Live a life that you will remember.

Sometimes we believe that we are so ugly as the people say,but inside of us there is a small light on,to remind that we have natural beauty.We mustn't hear the outworld because their comments for our appearance belittles our self- confidence.

I think that the best way to feel good about the way you look is to stop thinking about the things you don't like about your body as a big problem, because you are probably the only one who notice it. You should instead start thinking about all the things you really like about yourself

You have to remember that all people are different. Many people get affected by all the "perfect" photos that there's on the social medias, and alot of people think that they have to look in a certain way. That's totally wrong because none of us are the same. Imagine if everyone looked the same, that would be the most boring world ever.

Submitted by RandomTears on Tue, 05/08/2018 - 10:56

Who says is true that they say? who says we should look like them? We've all tried looking in the minor and thought why don’t we look like them. We all have our own kind of beauty and we don’t have to look like them. It would be boring if we all looked the same.

Submitted by Lulu0409 on Tue, 05/08/2018 - 10:42

You don't have to compare yourself with other people. "You should know you're beautiful just the way you are". Listen to the song; Scars to Your Beautiful with Alessia Cara, then You will feel better;-)
