Words and Notion

Words Whipping up Whimsical Waves of Notion

Love your body

97 Comments

Beauty standards… People spend a lot of time, effort and patience to keep up with the standards, the so called “standards” imposed by the different means including media. And more often end up with desperate results.

Do we girls, need to be slim, fair and tall to meet the definition of “beauty”? (And similarly with a different set of definition for boys too)

Why are we going behind these unrealistic expectations as asked by Rashmi, Do You Wish For A Perfect Body?

I am not totally against makeovers. But it becomes dangerously obsessive when we can’t even believe in our own body. Just love our body as it is.

  1. This is true and sad that we feel we have to conform to societies norms. I don’t think this is just an issue girls face, although we get much more media attention on the fact that girls can be more influenced by the media. It’s important that you stay healthy as opposed to look a certain way.

  2. When I was younger, I put so much pressure on myself to look a certain way…I wore make-up daily…I just thought I had to look perfect all the time…constantly fixing my hair, my make-up, adjusting my clothes….its stressful being a woman in today’s pop culture. There is so much pressure on us to look a certain way. It takes a strong woman to challenge pop culture and love herself for the way she was made….beautiful! This is a great post!!!!!! Thank you for sharing!
    Please check out my post Beauty Is….I hope you enjoy! I would love your feedback!

  8. I was in a woman’s group years ago with women from ages 18 to 80. Not one except me probably had a good self image. What does this say?? In America anyway?? Ugh.

  15. “Just love our body as it is.” This last sentence of yours says everything in a nutshell Akhila. Love your body as it is. It is where our Divine dwells. A good write up and so true today we have been bombarded with various beauty items and that is making all of us mad and one is crazy with his or her own body.

  16. wow…what a fabulous write up…i too agree with you being fat or slim,fair or dark,tall or short does not matter , ultimate beauty is the reflection of your soul and thoughts.

  17. How else would people be able to sell their fancy gym equipment…ill-advised slimming and/or weight-gaining pills…fairness creams etc?
    All this bothered me once. Now it doesn’t. I am what I am. Health is necessary and should be looked after well. The rest is nonsense.

  20. Absolutely agree with you Akhila. Our body is the most amazing machine with a soul. The true beauty should reflect from within rather than the physical appearance!!

    • well said Radhi..seems we are ignoring the fact that there are many factors deciding our beauty, like, our personality, talk, inner self etc.. and blindly we are trying to improve this physical appearance alone

  21. Being healthy is all that matters. We are not going to be slim, fair and flawless skin when we turn 60. (Or whichever age when we get wrinkles, skin turns saggy and hair starts greying) Fat people are made fun of. Not all obese cases are because of over-eating; It can be hormonal or genetic. Three years ago, people teased me for being fat, though I was hardly fat. Now that I lost a lot of weight due to health woes, these same people complain that I look very thin and skinny! Most of the creams advertised say fair skin in 7days, one month. Why does one need a fair skin? We should be proud of the melalin content in our skin😊

  23. Good morning Akhila, It’s really a good thought… 🙂 Even I am not against makeover but it shouldn’t be without understanding or believing the beauty of yourself.

  24. I agree with you. Media has just put false notions in our brains as to what a fit guy or girl should be. Pathetic.
