Acceptance

In our culture...women are told they must be beautiful, young and of a certain shape and size...We are to be sexy and highly intelligent....so we try and try to fit the mold or hold onto what we deem is a necessary asset to be considered worthy...I am guilty of this too. ..I still hear my mother's words...This is who I am and if they don't like it...too bad....I was always concerned about image...still am...I always wanted everything to be beautiful.......I have often wondered about cosmetic surgery...but never did because I love natural beauty and I fear ...becoming another manmade replica of woman...and fake...Nothing could be worse for me than fake...even though I love looking good and have a healthy ego..
Woman...powerful and beautiful because of her birthright. Will we ever learn to love ourselves as we are?
I am not judging for I find myself desiring attractiveness as well....so I fight the battle with you....I want to accept my natural state....I want to grow in Grace..I want to learn to be me...the best I can be...and in the original packaging.

I suppose men are told similar things in our cultural and gender indoctrination program and you're right in what you say especially for women. Welcome to the blogs, I enjoy your thinking/writing and hope a place to freely express yourself brings surprising rewards! Loving ourselves is an interesting.... challenge. The pic of the woman painting is excellent!

True beauty comes from within...no cosmetic surgery can change this beauty...even when the outside fades...the inside never does.

No Day Is So Bad It Can't Be Fixed With Great Sex!

Please don't ever let the media, or any other human being, for that matter, try to change the way you look at yourself. While there are some things over which we have control, and while weight can lead to other physical complications (diabetes, blood pressure, heart conditions), if you are truly comfortable and HAPPY within the skin you are in, stay exactly as you are, until and unless YOU want some change in your life. I note a capital "G" in "Grace," and although we are clearly of different beliefs, please allow me to quote from a very wise woman who is likely closer to yours:

"God didn't make no junk."

Remember, once the package is opened, the true beauty radiates forever.

Stay strong, dear, and welcome to the dance.

very well stated, tho I know how difficult this struggle is. I hardly ever 'win', lose almost daily.

enjoy yourself
