You Are Beautiful!

Recently I heard 2 incidents, that made me wonder how come in the history of my 1000+ posts I never talked about body positivity exclusively.

I Will talk about incident No.1 today.

There’s a really really pretty, tall, slim super-mode-type girl who is a friends friend. Let’s call her A (solely because A is first alphabet)

A starves herself and always worries that if she breathes too much she might gain weight and it has gotten to a point where she throws up when she eats an average adult meal. All of this could be a health issue but she is not accepting that yet.

Recently she was worried about her smile lines (which is natural at 37 I guess) and hair (I don’t even know what was wrong with hair). So, she went to an aesthetician.

This Dr Beauty, didn’t even examine her for her overall health, otherwise what happened next could be avoided.

A did not tell what procedures she was going for, but they were performed at doctor’s home.

Something went wrong, and A fainted. And it was a scary emergency situation it was later found that she was already very weak and had one cup yogurt one day before the visit, so probably she already had low blood pressure (which was never checked, to my surprise).

This sounds like a negligence on part of the aesthetician, but there’s more.

Doctor handed her a long list of problems in her face the moment she saw her.

I have seen this girl. She is beautiful. I don’t see any problem. She could easily be a super-model.

Fine lines are natural. If you smile, you get lines. Simple. These are beautiful signs of aging.

Lines are not a flaw!

Every time I open instagram, I see someone in lab coat telling you how everything on your face is wrong and how you need 5 products and 6 steps and million dollars procedures to fix them.

Our mothers used the most basic cleanser and one moisturizer (optional) had better skin than us.

They are embedding insecurities in your mind. Making you hate your body and feel bad about yourself, just because they have to sell something to you.

Take a moment and look around.

We all are beautiful and perfect in our own way.

We didn’t come out of a printer so we definitely will be different.

And what’s wrong with that?

Medicine is a Nobel field and every doctor deserves to be respected.

But telling somebody they have flaws, playing with people’s insecurities.

Half an hours looking at all those clips, you feel there’s nothing right with you.

When the truth is, there’s nothing NOTHING wrong with you.

If you want to go for a product or procedure it should be purely out of love fore yourself, not for insecurities or fear of any kind of judgement.

You all are beautiful inside out. Individual, one-of-a-kind work of art.

Do not let anyone take that away from you. Not even you yourself. ❤️

  1. The internet and media are experts at saying one thing-“you are beautiful just the way you are”…THEN pointing out every perceived flaw based on another’s unrealistic standards. My mom was a teen in the Twiggy era so to this day,she is convinced not being Twiggy size makes her hideous. Personally,I do not think five five,150 pounds is obese but thanks to societal ‘norms’ from 55 years ago,my mom still holds it as an ideal.
    I think we should all shun that ‘ideal weight’ chart and go by how we feel and how healthy we are. I mean,seriously,by these ‘ideal’ body standards my 11 year old would border being overweight at 5 foot 5,127 pounds. We are all beautiful,ideal is a fallacy,and the internet and doctors need to understand that. If it is about good health and you have that…then it is all appearance based and that is wrong.

    1. That is not at all obese and the incident #2 is about weight i have to cover a lot of points there.
      You are so right about social media confusing people with conflicting statements.
      You are absolutely right. And weight itself is not a conclusive measure of health. It goes hand in hand with other factors. I have been on steroids and have struggled alot, i still do. And i have seen life long struggles with weight of few people close to me. And i can’t stress enough, it’s about health. We all have different body types and tendencies.
      Health should be the only focus.
      Thanks for this comment. I will work on 2nd post faster now.

  2. What, we didn’t come out of a printer? Lol.

    Joking aside, I love every word of this. I am so sad for people who define themselves through perfection (that is a facade). Who gets to decide perfect?

    It’s scary to see so many worried about perfect hair in an Instagram post then their physical and mental well being. I once read a blog post about a girl who had traveled all over and later admitted how lonely she was. That was so sad to me.

    And for reference. My wonderful wrinkles are…knowledge lines. And I earned every one.

    Fabulous Post!!!

    1. I’m glad you liked it.

      The problem is, “perfection” is what we are measured against since childhood. If i go into details you all will start crying here.

      A lot of it comes from what happened around you when you were growing up, we just succumb to the standards.

      That’s what the world has come to, just look perfect in pictures, most times its filters and nothing is real, therefore the emptiness.

      It is sad. One you think somebody has it all and they have something major missing.

      I remember you calling them that and i love it.

      My smile lines are increasing and getting deeper but i dont eveb care about them anymore. And i have too many grey hair already, dont give a fk about those too lol. I think people stop caring when you stop caring.

      Thank you 🙂

      1. Yes, right on. I guess it does start at childhood. I often laugh at my young grandchildren doing goofy things and hope they are never afraid to continue to “be themselves”. If life gets in the way, I hope they know they can land here and be exactly who they are meant to be.

        But, ok, I do color my hair. Lol.

      2. You said that way back, and you know what?? After being gone for awhile and returning , I couldn’t believe you really had a photo of you on your blog . At first I was t sure it was you. I smiled so big! You really are beautiful, and that beauty radiates from your soul. (And I don’t just “say” things. I don’t operate that way.)

    1. Thank you and you’re welcome.
      It’s high time we start normalizing being yourself and being the best of your own self (without pressures)
      Idk who came up with these standard, they don’t even make sense. It took me a long time to entirely get comfortable with my own self.

  3. This woman reminds me of those caricatures made by George Grosz about the high society in 1920, all about appearance and no substance. As it appears nothing has really changed since then, just the methods have become all too common, more facetious and deceptive.
