“Perfection is a disease of a nation. We overlay our faces with tons of make-up. We get botoxs and even starve ourselves to become that perfect size. We try to fix something but you can’t fix what you can’t see. It’s the soul that needs the surgery. It’s time that we take a stand. How can you expect someone else to love you if you don’t love yourself? You have to be happy with yourself. It doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Today, I want to put up a makeup-free photo. I know I have wrinkles on my skin but today I want you to see beyond that. I want to embrace the real me and I want you to embrace who you are, the way you are, and love yourself just the way you are.” – Julia Roberts.
Julia Roberts is the latest celebrity who’s starting raising awareness among her Facebook and Instagram followers by posting a powerful message on how extreme and unhealthy our beauty parameters have become.
It seems that the world today has become obsessively focused on physical appearance. Imagine the effort, both financial and psychological, you put in postponing the inevitable signs of aging by resorting to unhealthy and unnatural anti-aging products.
The beauty principles of the 21st century can clearly be defined as abnormal. It’s the beauty-on-steroids that’s taking over the world. Awful!
Artificial esthetics is ruling the world by keeping us locked into an imaginary prison we put ourselves into. Instead of exploring and living by our true potential, we turn toward esthetics that’s been forced upon us.
Regardless of how good a person looks, it’s never meets the beauty criteria of today. This standpoint couldn’t be more wrong because physical appearance should be the last thing to value in a person. It’s the soul that matters!
