This video talks about how women are portrayed in the media. How they are altered to show an unobtainable beauty… but what about the men that are portrayed in the media? I know that I struggle with the way that my body looks each and every day. Being on Tumblr is an space that allows you to say and be what you want, but we see pictures of both men and women that are altered to a point that is unreachable for everyone, including the people in the pictures we see. I don’t think I will ever be able to think of my body in a completely positive way in which I feel totally satisfied with the way I look. This message has been too far etched into my mind and so many others minds that all we can do is try and convince ourselves that we are happy with ourselves, regardless of what thoughts still remain. I know there are people in this world that truly love their bodies, and for that I truly respect them for embracing the way that they are and wish I could feel the same confidence about myself, but for everyone that has ever struggled with their body image, know that you are not alone.
