Stereotypes and society.!

in Project HOPElast month (edited)

Hello friends, I hope you are feeling well and having a great week.

Today I want to talk to you about a topic that I think is really interesting in our society today, because unfortunately most of us, especially women, are exposed to it or we are simply slaves of the situation.

THE STEREOTYPES OF BEAUTY

Would you like to know what the word beauty means to you? What do you mean by it? Do you consider yourself a beautiful person on the outside as well as on the inside?

I think these are questions we should ask ourselves and solve them ourselves, not let others distort our thinking.

We all know that nowadays beauty is sold to us on television and everywhere as the perfect woman, the one who is thin, with big breasts, a small waist and an enviable face, but the reality is different, not all of us have these attributes and many of us let ourselves be carried away and change our mentality because of what the industry wants to sell us.

Obviously this is not a reality that only affects women, men are also involved, only that for us it is much easier to fall into this competition of beauty.

I believe that today social networks have actively participated in these changes in mentality and psychological disorders of many people, they want to sell us a reality that is simply not ours, they do not want to sell realities because otherwise they would not earn the same amount of money. And it is not only in common life, it also affects celebrities who are always in a constant competition to see who is the best and the most beautiful."OBVIOUSLY A NOTHING HEALTHY ATTITUDE FOR OUR LIFE".

Social networks can be good up to a point, but the moment they start to disrupt your life and change your mentality in a negative way and make you not love yourself as a person, there is already a problem. I think that the new generation is the most affected by all this, since being younger in my opinion we are more susceptible to fall into these influences.

Although on the other hand I must say that these stereotypes are inculcated since childhood, since we have a doll with an excellent body, hair and face, they teach us that we must be like them and when we realize that this is not the reality we give ourselves a strong blow with life. Many I understand, many not and those are the ones that later present pathologies like the bulimia and the anorexia, for some it is something without importance but really it is an important upheaval and that can finish with the life of any person.

Fortunately some companies are already being more aware of this situation and in some countries we can see dolls from different cultures and also that are not the perfect barbie that we have always sold, real women may have excess fat, have cellulite most, have dark circles, also wrinkles, stretch marks are also part of their lives sometimes, "THAT IS THE REALITY" and who does not accept I think has big problems.

Or at least that's my opinion.

Hi Friend

you picked really nice topic and its bitter truth that we are getting modern but still people look for outer beauty. Body figure and features are not really that much important and what we need to look for is inner beauty. Thanks

Hello friend, it is certainly so. Thanks for commenting.

The society has completely painted a picture that a beautiful body is only a perfect slim body shape and in order to do into that perfect body standard, so many people starve themselves all the time. We all need to wake up to the reality of being comfortable in our own skin.

Hello friend, I agree with you. Thanks for commenting.

I think the main problem is that we have as a reference of beauty what the media sell us, selling us even unreachable standards, which increases the disorders of people who are influenced by those images. The perception of beauty should be personal and not imposed.

Hello friend, you are very right. Thanks for commenting.

I think parents should teach children to be confident in their own skin instead of trying to follow a specific pattern all the time.

Hi friend, they should certainly get involved too.

We have to grow confident in our own skin and colour, in the region where I stay so many people are concerned about getting fair and they have even programmed the minds of their children to believe that anyone who is dark is ugly.

That's right friend, thanks for stopping by.
