My friend, Wendy from Ordinary Miracles posted this ad from Dove entitled Real Beauty Sketches that effected me profoundly. Take a watch:
My reaction to this ad was a lump in my throat and tears as soon as I began to hear these women describe themselves. It caused me such sadness as I felt like I heard my own inner voice echoing the same things in my head. This video stuck with me all day.
We are under such pressure to be perfect, to emulate what we see on tv and magazines. We have this crazy, unrealistic expectation we are all trying to strive for with our exercising, dieting, make up, hair products...
It's Feedback Friday...
