I recently read a statistic that only 4% of women believe that they are beautiful. This statistic is easy to believe, but how it breaks my heart… Our society has created a standard of beauty that is physically impossible to achieve. And yet, it is this standard that we are trying to live up to.
If we, as women, can find beauty in children, beauty in flowers in the front lawn, and beauty in a gorgeous Spring day, how is it that we can’t see it in the reflection of the mirror?
I think this video created by Dove is such a perfect snapshot of how women view themselves. It’s time that we start loving ourselves,not despite our “imperfections,” but embracing our perfect “imperfections” that make us who we are. That make us beautiful!
