Why are we like this? As a society why do we put the image of the perfect body in everyone’s head? We say that being slim and having a tiny waist is the only way to be beautiful, when that is so far from the truth. No one should feel like they are anything less than perfect, and the media makes so many young girls feel like they aren’t good enough. Girls all around the world struggle from eating disorders. They starve themselves, or throw up their food because they feel like eating is wrong. They feel like the only way to be accepted is to be skinny and to have the perfect body. But is there really such a thing as the perfect body? Everyone has different body types and we are all different, and that is what makes each and every one of us special. We shouldn’t be restricting our calories or starving ourselves just because we want to be society’s definition of beautiful. We are all under Media’s spell, and this is hurting everyone. Girls everywhere don’t love themselves because they think that they aren’t good enough. It is truly sad. When we look in the mirror we should all feel confident with what we see because at least we know that we aren’t photoshopped. As a society we need to stop putting the idea in everyone’s head that skinny is better because the only size people should have to worry about is what size ice cream cone to get.
