Beautiful is an interesting word. It’s meaning has changed over time – it has been morphed and twisted by leading figures throughout history. A new trend can emerge and change the meaning of beauty overnight.
As a woman, I grew up feeling like I needed to be beautiful. When I was growing up I never really worried about things like being smart or successful – I just felt so much pressure to be BEAUTIFUL.
I felt like I should be skinny. My hair should be silky and thick. My skin should be basically hairless. We all grow up feeling a pressure to be “beautiful” as defined by society. But now it’s time to reconsider what being “beautiful” actually means.
