We exist in a world today where everything can be faked or fixed. Noses can be changed, stomachs can be tightened and cellulite can be lasered away apparently because that’s what we are told to do which is alter ourselves to be beautiful. Often women are told that they should not be conscious about their bodies if they are skinny. To the world, it seems inappropriate for someone who is average-sized to talk about problems with weight gain. Orphan young girls and women suffer from anxiety because they cannot have a body they see on social media. They believe that they are not beautiful enough because they don’t have a small waist. In this society young girls and women often face the struggle of having to live up to the expectation of a certain kind of appearance. A woman should not feel the need to explain her body or justify it to anyone as it changes. It is too ridiculous to think about explaining the nature of our bodies to other people. We do this just because we don’t want them to judge us. Judgement and criticism always existed, it’s just that now everyone can be a critic and share it publicly without hesitation. We all want to see glimpses of our insecurities on the models in magazines and on Instagram. It is because we want to know that we are not the only ones who have changing bodies. From a very young age, we are unknowingly being trained by magazines marketing and all forms of media into thinking that having cellulite or not wearing makeup is worthy of being publicly shamed. We are not born with these insecurities, we are told to be insecure about certain things. We are conditioned to feel ashamed or embarrassed about certain parts of ourselves. The world is not going to reform tomorrow we can’t rely on those who profit from our perceived flaws to change their ways. There is no easy fix to the ideas of women that have existed for hundreds of years. So that leaves us with one option which is changing it ourselves, showing what’s real with no filter and certainly with no shame. We should encourage ourselves to find a healthy balance between expressing the natural, vulnerable side of ourselves with the glamorous, contoured side.Manpreet SinghParticipant@manpreetJuly 16, 2021 at 11:09 am #33128
Society shapes us in many ways – from our relationships and our own development up to the perspective of others as a self-respecting reflection – perhaps far more than we can realize. We are a society. We are social entities. For humanity’s survival, we rely genetically on each other. This primary connection makes our physically and psychologically significant interactions. It is therefore not unexpected that on many levels the way we see society impacts us. And it’s partially how society perceives that concern our bodies; we talk about the image of our bodies. So what is this all about? More and more the media has become a platform that strengthens cultural beliefs and reflects strong views on how to look, which we as people frequently validate and perpetuate unintentionally or knowingly. The more we look at perfect images of people and then we look at them and don’t find them, the worse we feel about ourselves. It is a circle of dissatisfaction.
A women’s health and well-being are dependent on a positive body image and a healthy self-evaluation. Our body image is influenced by the media, those around us, and popular culture. In contemporary society, young people are exposed to many pictures, which demonstrate that beauty, elegance, and masculinity are lean and muscular. These photos are full of television, periodicals, movies, websites, and social media. The visualization of these pictures is connected with a poor image of the body and feeling our own bodies are not okay. This can have a bad effect on self-esteem and your child’s mind and well-being.
A positive image of the body requires learning that healthy attractive bodies come in different shapes and sizes and that physics says little about our personality or value. All media and messaging are manufactured or built and are not reality reflections. Cry back, then. Talk about our unhappiness with the focus on looks and size failure. Scale kilograms give us nothing significant about the total organism or about our health. Food habits and patterns of activity are more essential. We will each have a positive corporal image if we have a realistic impression of our bodies, if we like, embrace, and celebrate our perpetual indoctrination of negative social or media.DISHA SAPKALEParticipant@42dishaJuly 28, 2021 at 9:29 pm #33273
In today’s generation every girl and women has different sizes and shapes of their body but only thing they need is getting influenced through digital platforms and have body like social media influencers or actresses. Media are changing the point of view of person’s thinking about their body image. Because of which people are trying all the things without getting concern by the professionals due to which it is affecting their body and mental health. There are many Tv celebrities and actress who have made perfect features by taking treatment because they are having professionals with them Whereas other people who are wanting to have features like them and doing anything without getting proper treatment is wrong, we should be happy with ourselves and look beautiful as you are instead of being like others. Culture beliefs are more getting into every person mindset because of social media platforms and nowadays almost every age groups are connected by social media. Due to which it changes the perspective of people towards how women are perceive their body. There are women and girls who gives explanation to people around them about their body image they need to stop giving explanation. Many girls and women think that they don’t have slim figure than they are not beautiful which is wrong this all is happening because of mindset and culture that people are getting influenced. Women and girls need to be confident with their own body image instead of making changes in their lifestyle just to look like others.

In today’s generation, society plays a big role in talking about women’s bodies some women are skinny and some are fat so according to your body shape and size does not matter unless it is not harming your health. The tv industry always wants to work with the people who have a nice figure which will look good it’s like at your age if you are young you should look thin, there are a lot of things which should change by the time people need to understand some people have in their genes that’s why they are fat they can’t get slim fully and doing excessive dieting all the time is not good for the body health. Some influencers are just giving very wrong content on their social handles, they don’t see the editing behind every post. Many actors, content creators, and models doing surgery on their faces and other parts of the body just to look presentable. We should try to be natural and embrace our flaws real beauty, it is. People cannot look pretty all the time they need to understand this. some people are always in search of wanting more and doing extra things. To be beautiful means to be yourself. you don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself-thinh that ninh
