Outer layer

by connorcurran

Define beauty.

a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight. "

Is that all there is to a person?

No. I may have flaws and parts of my body that I hate but there's is more to a person than the outer layer.


the problem is that society is obsessed with the idea of the "ideal body" we set for the world.

It is teaching men and women to pick out every possible flaw of their bodies and focus on that, we spend so much time focusing and what we don't like.

We are more than what we look like.

I wish for once society could love each other for who we are and not what we look like.

Beauty is not all about what's on the outside.

Beauty is not my thighs. Beauty is not my stomach. Beauty is not my appearance. Beauty is me as a person, as a whole.

My body does not define me.

I define myself.

Excellent graphic and prose presentation of an idea. You also kept things simple and to the point. You have touched on one of the most damaging self-esteem problems in modern society. With the wide spread dissemination of "ideal body types", it is extremely important that counterpoints to this poison are also disseminated. Stay with this you have a unique talent.
