Just Be Yourself…

One thing I have learned this past year is definitely just be yourself. It’s so easy of a concept yet I see so many women, including myself being manipulated and pulled in every direction with television, the internet, magazines, movies and even the music jams on the radio! Media is everywhere and it sure as heck is not going anywhere! We have always heard from our parents that we our all special and just be yourself. However, as soon as we are in line at the grocery store food stand, we see the photo shopped blonde bimbo running on the the beach, doing her best Pamela Anderson impersonation! It’s hard to be yourself, when you constantly have to compare your body to that!

I don’t know about you, but I’m not exactly inspired by the unrealistic marketing and expectations that the media portrays on us women. I am happy for those woman who have naturally chiseled curves and symmetrical facial features but I hate seeing that a majority of pictures have been enhanced. Why can’t media portray what real life women look like? Photo shopped, size zero models with are not the only women that enjoy running alongside the beach…

I believe that we need to start empowering and educating women by showing them what media is really doing to your ego. I read this article this morning and thought I pass you some knowledge. Check out this awesome article here. It is mind blowing the ill effects that our media is causing women everywhere and we women need to start putting more facts about photo shopping and other techniques media uses to lower our self esteem! I guess I better go put on my lip enhancer serum, so I can have lips like Kylie Jenner.
