Many men and women compare themselves to celebrities. They don’t understand that what they’re doing is comparing themselves with an illusion. The images we see of celebrities are not real. They are touched up, photoshopped and lit to perfection. Then they are approved by the star and if he or she sees a flaw they do not endorse it.
I fear for young boys and girls who feel they need to be perfect in order to succeed in life. No human being is perfect. And no one should compare them self to anyone else. No matter how hard an apple tries to be a banana it will always be an apple, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
People can be beautiful with their flaws. Call me weird but I’m actually attracted to certain “flaws” or what some may determine to be “flaws”. Here are some things that I find attractive that may be unorthodox.
*I love a crooked smile.
*I find bald men attractive.
*A well placed scar can be very sexy.
*I don’t like skin that’s completely clear and flawless. I prefer a few lines, a spot here or there, maybe a bump or a scar.
*Skinny is not attractive. I prefer a strong healthy body with some shape.
There are more, but I didn’t want to go on and on. You get my point. I believe everyone should embrace who they are, try to be the best they could be and never ever compare themselves to a celebrity.
Flaws––they flow through her
Illusions of perfection
