“I would rather wear honest tears than the most beautiful and elaborately faked smile.” – Tyler Knott Gregson
For as long as I can remember the beauty wold as surrounded me. Ever since I was a little girl and especially with the rise of social media it has become more prevalent than ever.
What one often does not see if how ugly the beauty world truly is. With nonstop photoshop, headlines that have to do with diets, and being too fat, the list could go on and one.
We have become numb to all of the lies we are being fed.
The magazines, the photoshop, the social media. The flawless skin, the perfect body, the happy life with not a problem in sight.
We place impossible body standards on ourselves. We see children walking the runway looking like adults and feel bad ourselves because we don’t have the same body as them.
In the world we live in today, all that it takes in a simple scroll through social media. Something that we mindlessly do every day, to see the fake that can so easily seem real.
We compare our worst to their best and expect it to match up, even though it never will, we still try our hardest to get it to.
This is the beauty world, this is the social media world, this is the ugly world.
