Beautiful You

As a woman in the 21st century, I am constantly seeing magazines and the media telling all of us that we need to lose weight, change our hair, plastic surgery or go to the tanning salon.
Everytime I see this in a magazine or portrayed in the media, I get sick to my stomach.
I have thick dark curly hair, dark features, light olive skin, stretch marks from the weight gain from when I was in high school and lost it in my early 20’s. And I will say this, I will not change myself just to fit into society’s standards of beauty. I am perfectly imperfect. And I accept myself and don’t want to change myself.
I do not want to change my boob size, nor do I want to straighten my hair. For one, straightening my hair would damage it and I love my curls. I will admit, in high school, I hated my curls so I did straighten my curls just to feel more beautiful.
Everyday I see girls and yes, some guys who change themselves so they can be perceived beautiful by society.
Hold on right there society.
I got one thing to say.
EVERYONE IS BEAUTIFUL JUST THE WAY THEY ARE, DON’T TRY TO CORRUPT THEIR MINDS.
Throughout time there has been different views of what beauty is. During the Renaissance it was voluptuous women and more natural bodies that were beautiful. During the 1940’s, it was all about the hourglass figure. And during the 1960’s, it was all about the super skinny figure, Twiggy was a rolemodel during this time.
Ladies and gentleman, you are all beautiful just the way you are!
DO NOT LET THE MEDIA TELL YOU THAT YOU WON’T BE BEAUTIFUL UNTIL YOU CHANGE YOURSELF, IT’S NOT WORTH IT!
