When I shared my personal struggles with body image, the response was staggering. I was amazed by how many women and young girls were silently suffering. I was overwhelmed by your emails, your comments, your kind words – the resounding “me too” and “thank you for letting me know I’m not alone.” And while at first I felt validated, those feelings quickly turned to anger. Our generation has been duped. We’ve been lied to and manipulated. Our very psyche has been tampered with – we have been programmed to never be happy with the way that we look – all for someone else’s bottom line.
Think about it: How many BILLIONS of dollars would be lost if every woman woke up tomorrow and believed that she was beautiful? That she wasn’t some work in progress, that her body wasn’t in constant need of improvement? Just think about how much money is made by making women feel inferior.
We’re taught to never be happy – to never feel good about ourselves.
I’m telling you that it is a LIE.
An ugly, greedy, manipulative lie.
And I say enough is enough.
