After watching this video, I realized that there are still people out there who do not realize how phony and contrived our concept of what is “beautiful” really is. ALL of you ladies need to watch this. And men too. Stop buying into what they are feeding you. The idea of “beauty” portrayed by the mainstream media is not a real woman – or man – in any way, shape or form.  They changed every single thing about the model in the video below. EVERY SINGLE THING. The idealized version of beauty is not even a real person. It’s sad, because women compare themselves to that and feel like failures, or men compare real women to it and feel cheated when it doesn’t even really exist. Women starve themselves and judge each other and themselves – so harshly based on an ideal that is not even real. Men judge and compare real women based on these images unfairly.

We all need to stop buying into what they are feeding us.
