Sometimes I think that one of the most powerful things in the world is a piece of glass.
We run in circles comparing who is the prettiest, thinnest, or who has what it takes.
A mirror can convince you that you will never be enough and the world will tell you that you don’t have what it takes. If I had to guess, you probably look into the mirror and pick out the flaws. Most of the time, we try to solve the problem by bashing models and saying they are anorexic, giving ourselves a pep talk, and strapping on our “self-esteem” vest.
We convince ourselves that our bodies are perfect just the way we are, that we have what it takes, but we don’t adjust our focus to what actually matters. We don’t remember that our worth doesn’t even come from that.
I wonder what would happen if we realized that everything isn’t quite as we see it.
