Beauty Control Detail
The wisdom of the Velveteen Rabbit Says it best: “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
True Beauty is found in being Real, being your authentic self and not buying into a social standard of beauty.
The issue of media painting a picture of the ideal body is an old issue and I don’t want to give it a lot more energy because I am about changing it. I think it is important to know the origins, just for the sake of understanding. The ideal standard of beauty has been a social implant for a long time not only in the USA but around the world.
