Lisa's Life

Thursday, November 09, 2006

Today in class we talked about body image and how the media affects it. I really think it is a huge issue in our society b/c so many women (and men) struggle with how they look. Just look at the rate of plastic surgery. No one anymore is satisfied with how they look b/c we are constantly bombarded with images of perfect people. It is so far beyond reality but seeing it so often makes us think it is. My friend recently told us she was struggling with an eating disorder....it saddened me! I wish that the way we looked didn't carry so much value. Why don't we just learn to love ourselves the way we were made?
