We live in a society that is very unforgiving for women. The monumental amount of superficial pressure can be very overwhelming to women and also leave them feeling discouraged. Because of this, one of the biggest crazes among women these days is plastic surgery. If a woman is not satisfied with the way she looks, she will take drastic measures to augment her appearance in order to achieve that certain look she wants.
There is nothing wrong with trying to alter your appearance to become the most attractive you can be, however, when that desire begins to dictate your life and consume who you are, you may be in need of a mental tune up.
Everyone has heard the saying, beauty is only skin deep – and the saying is true – however, we live in a time and culture where appearance plays a large role in so many aspects of our lives. It seems like our appearance factors into so many areas of a woman’s life that the needs and desire for flawless perfection takes over. There is a constant comparison with every woman we encounter, which is ultimately very damaging. These days, women are looking at women more than men look at women and we are much harsher critics on ourselves, as well as others.
A natural desire to change your appearance and perfect flaw is normal and there are times that a little Botox or collagen are used to enhance our appearance and give us that boost of confidence needed to survive in a competitive society but when those desires become unhealthy, you have to question if it is a physical change that needs to be made or a mental change.
There is a very dignified beauty about a woman who ages gracefully and a woman who has accepted who she is and where she is at in her life. Rising above the pressures to picture perfect in it is beauty. What women need to do is find is finding that balance between healthy pursuit of beauty and unhealthy consumption of society’s pressure. Part of finding that healthy beauty is doing a self-assessment of who you are. Every woman has a distinctiveness about her that can radiate, however that characteristic needs to radiate within before it can outwardly shine. When there is an understanding that there is only one you, and falling in love with the qualities that make you that one and only can alter your life. Too much time is wasted trying to become something or someone that we are not.
When a woman begins to fall in love with the characteristics and features that make her the woman she is, there is a liberating power that will come with it, and a confidence that will radiate attraction. You may never have that perfect thirty-six figure or the airbrushed polished face, but you will have that inner peace that is okay with who she is and that is a beauty that even age cannot take away.
