what is right now-a-days anyway?

by Rachel
(Lindon, Utah, United States of America)

I know the media is a big effect on how we see ourselves and others. But who made it that way? The media is only doing its job: selling products. We look at ourselves however WE choose. The media cant tell us we're ugly, because they don't know us. We are beautiful however we are. As long as we're happy, it doesn't matter. The media doesn't set the norm, we allow it to by following it and allowing our self worth to be depleted by its unachievable beauty. It's all up to us on whether or not we feel out of place or upset. Everyone is flawed. No one is perfect, no one can ever be perfect, so why try? Just find a happy medium. Somewhere where you feel good. I'm fine just the way I am, and i just laugh at all those "perfectly" photoshoped women on the billboards and think "They could only wish to be me, life is good, life is worth living, and nothings going to stop me from reaching my goals and achieving my dreams!"
