a note about self image

Self image
I was just watching this cover ad with the actress Drew Barrymore and realize that women and especailly young girls are bombard with images of women with make up, size o and who have had work done on their bodies. I have nothing against makeup because i wear most times but i just realize that the images we as women get are that you put on some make up and all your problems would be gone. We live in an age where the media shows celebrities actors , singers etc with long straight hair, skinny and long legs. There is little diversity from the media on portraying how real women look and are. Not everyone can be a size zero but I digress.

I have notice that because of those images on television, cd covers , magazines etc women and young girls have become self loathing. Women are now trying all kind of diets, buying the latest outfits and clothes that maybe Mariah Carey, Madonna or Halle Berry wore. Women becoming anorexic, bulimic or suffering from any weight issue or disease and becoming overwhelming unhealthy. Young girls don't have the self confidence because of what they see in and what they are experiencing. Many young girls are being bullied or being made fun because they not the size zero or 2 like the popular girls in school or they were braces or and they don't fit the general consensus of beauty.

We have women damaging their bodies and skin by having botox or spray tanning themselves not realizing g the effects of these beauty enhancements would do, tans can cause cancer, botox can go wrong. we as women should forgot those media images and forget those celebrities and have more love for ourselves and realize that though those famous women portray themselves as perfect they are not and its all smoke screens to make the world believe that they are perfect.

Society has to change its perception on what is beautiful and what is great self image. we have to be careful of who we call beautiful, we call fat. There should be more diversity in the media, in magazines etc of how a woman looks not just the tall, skinny, long legs, long hair women that we see but we should we have a more diverse group not all of us are skinny but we are curvy , few extra around, short etc, We need to see more women of different sizes,, textures so that we don't have the case of girls having a bad view of their selves and their body image.

A good self image for our women and girls becomes with us we have the power to change and we should

Lets all forget about the Hollywood stereotypes that we are bombarded by and just love our selves for difference

GOD MADE US ALL JUST THE WAY WE ARE IN 'HIS IMAGE' FOR 'HIS' GOOD PLEASURE. NOT FOR 'SELF IMAGE' BUT FOR 'HIS IMAGE'. NO ONE SHOULD JUDGE ANOTHER'S LOOKS IN ANY CAPACITY AND...IF WE KEEP OUR EYES ON CHRIST AND OFF OF OTHERS, HE WILL KEEP US IN PERFECT PEACE WITH OURSELVES AND...WITH OTHERS. THE WORLD IS WAXING WORSE AND WORSE, O'NIKA...AND IT WILL NOT GET BETTER. SOMETIMES WE CAN BE GUILTY OF 'POINTING THE FINGER' AT OTHERS, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME WE RESENT IT WHEN OTHERS POINT THEIR FINGER AT US. WE CANNOT CONTROL WHAT OTHERS FEEL AND THINK, BUT WE CAN CONTROL WHAT WE FEEL AND THINK. WHAT ARE THE TWO GREAT COMMANDMENTS; WE HAVE TO FIRST STRIVE TO LOVE GOD WITH ALL OUR HEART, SOUL AND MIND...THEN WE CAN LOVE OTHERS(OUR NEIGHBORS)AS WE LOVE OURSELVES. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS & FAITH...JOYCE + HIS INSPIRATIONS
