Sorry but I had to write this. I don’t understand it, Why are women still relying on fashion magazines to help them through their lives?
Today I bought a popular one, i wont name names and after reading it I felt disgusted among the things it tried to pass on to me were:
- I should own indian style fringed boots and black embellished boots
- I should be realistic abaout a weight loss resolution, but buy a dress in a smaller size to motivate me
- I shouldn’t live beyond my means and be realistic with money, but they show me the most expensive items of clothing
- I shouldn’t have unrealistic relationship goals but how I can make any man fall in love with me in 90 minutes.
These are obviously just a few examples but it’s not alot different across the boards. And it upsets me that some, not all, girls feel they have to live up to these expectations. But in fact with me these magazines have the opposite affect, they make me strive to find bargains similar to some of the featured products and how to make certain styles suit me more. And as for body image well they just mean I fight more to show my love for my body, yes I know it’s not perfect but it’s mine at the end of the day.
I wish more girls could say this, so that’s what I want you to do in this post, give yourself a compliment about your body.
don’t be shy ladies!
