I am starting my first entry with a very particular topic that is increasing in my country, Venezuela,nowadays.
It seems that being naturally beautiful is not enough. The society ( Magazines, models, T.V, movies and some others) is telling us that we need to go through changes so that we can be accepted in this probably fake circle, which everybody is trying to be someone else. What do you think?
On the other hand, I just noticed that having some extra pounds or kilograms of weight is a sin and it is even banned. Being skinny is beautiful, though Why? Psychological speaking, being accepted is what everybody wants (obvious) but at what prize? Is it necessary going through a surgery, having new breast, nose, stomach ( unless you have had a baby and want to remove that extra skin) and perfecting your body in order to be liked by others?
I just see young ladies are very fond of surgeries , wasting and spending their money ( or their parents') on surgeries but not for college, studies, a nice house or even a nice trip abroad. why?
When I was 18 years old ( I'm 25 years old, now) I wanted to have breast augmentation, but, Was it going to be worthy? Was it going to raise my self-esteem? What for? No way. I changed my mind. I kept on studying and being beautiful just how I am like. (I'm graduated as a Teacher of English, now).
I just think plastic surgery has got a "cosmetic" connotation rather than a corrective one. Yes. If you have gone through breast cancer, you have been burn or had an accident, you MUST have a plastic/corrective surgery, of course and I agree with it, but... having it to be liked/loved/accepted/ by others? Or just because you have low self-esteem?
And you? What do you think?
