Manufactured Beauty ~ Body Image Issues

“People are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.” ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Facebook is the home of so many people trying to help the weaker people in our lives. By weaker I mean those who struggle with personal issues that impact upon their ability to enjoy live. One of those problems is self esteem. Men and women who feel how they look is more important than who they are are handicapped.

People are unique, I’m tall, you’ve got awesome hair, she as a lovely smile, and he has strength. In this video, we see a graphic example of what the world of fashion considers important. Sadly, it has nothing to do with what kind of person you are.

The ability to see beauty in every person, well almost every person, is a true blessing. Each person brings certain skills, information, and experience to those they meet. So why would one limit their value to something as superficial as how they look? Yes, that is obvious to most of us, but then, that’s not exciting to mass media. You know, normal, healthy people are not good fodder for their audiences.

Developing a positive body image and a healthy mental attitude is crucial to a woman’s happiness and wellness. Read on here for tips to develop a healthy body image.


Here’s hoping you are working on becoming as good a person as you can, helping those you care about to succeed in life, and being as good an example as you can. Cheers, peeps.
