The past few years, I more often than not hear women complain about the way they look. Not that I have anything against women taking care of themselves and make themselves look even more stunning (In fact I love it), but everything should have a limit.
Why am I saying this? Well, for one, it's usually the most stunning women who curse themselves for their ugliness and the skinniest people who curse themselves for being fat. And it's absolutely ridiculous if you ask me, because these women are perfect in the way they are different. I am so tired of everyone trying to be the same mainstream slim model, who I - more often than not - don't even think is pretty. I am not saying that you shouldn't do something about yourself if you know there is a problem - just don't call in the big guns just because you got that extra kilo during Christmas.
However, I don't blame women for thinking the way they do sometimes (and on a side note, I don't claim to understand women - that would be an overstatement the size of Kansas). However, media today really tries to brainwash you into seeing that there is only one way to be pretty, which couldn't be farther from the truth. Just turn on your TV. In the next 30 minutes, I'll bet that you will at least see three commercials for make-up, fashion, clothes, hair products - all in which you have the same standard model. Now, open a magazine. I say at least 5 pages in there will be of the same sort of model. Is it really that weird women get confused? I even saw a commercial for plastic surgery in TV!
I just want to underline, that this is no way a generalization of women.
So, today I want all you who reads this to do the following. Go tell your partner or a friend of the opposite sex that they're are beautiful, handsome, hot or any of these kind o f words. I did! And you know what?
The smile you get in return is priceless.
