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. ❤️
