Game Of Pleasing

 

I came across this picture today and I instantly felt very horrible. This is what we’re conveying to the young ones!

How much important it is to look good? Why do we have this ‘perfect’ figure definition to feel confident? Is it bad to have few more ounces on your body? How does the weight of the body can define a person? I really want an answer to these questions.

This isn’t the first time I’m feeling so disgusted! We are living in a world where stuff that pleases your eyes is good, be it a pair of shoes or some clothes or a person! Now adding a person into this above category of eye pleasing stuff is something that makes me feel disgusting. Like really? Having a pair of shoes that isn’t comfortable but still looks good might be fine (though I prefer comforting ones) or maybe a dress that looks lovely but isn’t making you feel comfortable might be okay too, but choosing people on the basis of their looks is just so insensitive and moronic!

We are so much focused on pleasing people that we actually forget about our own comfort! I would want to be in a society where people will be like ‘hey so what if you have a few more ounces on your body, just let it be’,  ‘you’ve got wonderful tanned skin’, ‘hey don’t worry, you look just awesome’. Is it really burdensome to accept the way people are! I wonder…

    This is so true and I agree in totality. People ask me what I look for, it’s merely personality, looks play a role but at least for me, maybe it’s just me but looks change based on how I know their personality, not literally but somehow in my head.

    Society overvalues the superficial, with dire consequences
