Beauty shouldn’t be about changing yourself to achieve an ideal or be more socially acceptable. Real beauty, the interesting, truly pleasing kind, is about honoring the beauty within you and without you. It’s about knowing that someone else’s definition of pretty has no hold over you.
I don’t believe that numbers define us. Test scores, our weight, our credit card numbers - they don’t make up who we are as a person. There are more important facts that contribute to who we are. The way we respond to the waiter when our order is messed up. Our reaction when we’re put in a bad situation that’s out of our control. The way we still know the words to our previous favorite songs. How we treat people when they’ve done us wrong. The moment we go out of our way to help someone who can’t return the favor. These are all important things that define who we are.
The idea behind Simple Pickup’s social experiment was to capture the responses of both males and females who meet someone on Tinder who weighs “a little more than [his or her] photo suggests.”
Is body image really a big problem? Do we really need to talk so much about how women treat and feel about themselves? YES. It’s worsened by how secretive a problem it is. We allow it to take our personal power. No one wants to talk about what they really say to themselves in the mirror. It changes how we start and end the day. How we use our energy on a daily basis. How we interact with one another and even what we strive for. We have power in our own voice. We can change our self dialogue. And while we have plenty of places to point to, to place blame, it is within each of us to change our own perspective. It’s time to take our power back
"It’s funny. Most girls seem to get a little more self conscious when they start modeling, but for me it was kind of the opposite. I didn’t have great self confidence before I started modeling, and modeling allowed me to see myself in a different light, to see myself through somebody else’s eyes. I learned to be less critical of myself. It helped me really begin to feel good about myself. I’d say it has been a really positive thing for me body-image-wise." -Freshie Juice
