As a child I watched women talk shows. Like Tyra, Ellen,and Oprah. These shows were great for self acceptance. But to my mistake I was also exposed to modeling, and ballet.. These two things are a strive for perfection that isn’t there. And the media sets the idea that there is perfection. It wasn’t always this way. But as time has progressed so has the media. Photoshop makes people seem unrealistically perfect or beautiful. In the forth grade I became conscious of my body image. For some reason I saw myself overweight. I lost ten pounds going into my fifth grade year. I didn’t need to. But I did. Even as a teenager I am still overly conscious of my body. It kills me when I look bloated. When it’s not perfect. Living the high stress lifestyle like I do, I get acne. And I don’t feel comfortable without those zits covered. I never will understand why I am this way. I just have to keep hope it won’t always be like this. Thank you.
