#32 Update on Body Image
I hope this isn’t too much for all y’all but I saw this on facebook and absolutely needed to comment on it:
Someone I’m friends with on facebook had liked or shared it or whatever and it came up on my newsfeed. So here it is, the major issue with modern society, as I see this photo saying, is that skimpy bikinis and girls that are skin and bones are projected as beautiful, but in all actuality, others want to see us as ourselves. I see an arrow telling me that covering more of myself is not less beautiful, in fact, it’s more attractive.
So maybe I’m tired and don’t really know where this is leading but I wanted to highlight my earlier point and say that we need to me more modest! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6-55Tgurvw “Modest is hottest!”)
Well, the amount of likes this photo got on facebook made me realize that we aren’t the only ones who think looking how we are and dressing modestly should be done, even if they don’t realize it, they’re making our point. So let’s fight on for modesty! Woo!
PS sorry I was all over the place, it’s late…
Edit: I should clarify that this photo also highlights the problems with society telling us how to look and what size we should wear and I in no way agree with that. Ladies (and Gents to, really), you are gorgeous whatever shape or size you are and however God made you, you are perfect! Wow, sorry for that oversight and thanks for pointing it out to me!!
