We all know that we are more than what is shown on the outside. But, that doesn’t stop us from nitpicking every wrinkle, blemish, or “imperfection” that we might see. We live in a society where millions of dollars every day are put towards ad campaigns to make us feel not good enough so that we will buy products to fix what really isn’t even broken.
We need to stop listening to those who do not have our best interests at heart and who only know how to judge. We need to start seeing ourselves as beautiful, complete and strong when we look at ourselves in the mirror. The piece by female empowerment artist Bridget Moore reminds us to see beyond and appreciate all that makes us who we are.

One of the biggest threats to having a healthy body image is comparing yourself to others. We tend to focus on the “ideal” traits of others while focusing on our own “flaws”. When you take in your own body, remember what it does for you as well as how it looks. Concentrate on the list of things you love before rushing to a critique. (NEDA)
Question the norm created by common media. The average model is 5’11” and 117 lbs, while the average North American woman is 5’4” and approximately 166 lbs. Media representations are not normal and there should be no shame involved in not looking like a supermodel or movie star. Keep in mind that only about 5% of the population is actually able to maintain that magazine and film style body type and it usually comes with funding from their employers, a schedule centered around exercise and a full team of stylists, makeup and hair artists, and masters of Photoshop.

Question: Think of people you respect with “non-perfect” bodies. Do they lose any respect in your eyes?
