Self-image

Self-image is the mental picture, generally of a kind that is quite resistant to change, that depicts not only details that are potentially available to objective investigation by others (height, weight, hair color, etc.), but also items that have been learned by that person about themself, either from personal experiences or by internalizing the judgments of others. A simple definition of a person's self-image is their answer to the question "What do you believe people think about you?".

Image- despite your tries, Despite your cries, What are you under your makeup? Image- the fault in society, That brings tears to your diary, The sound of a heart breaking. Image is why- Why men leave women in lust for another Why women draw blood from their wrists they wear long sleeves to cover. The false image of perfection Leads women to the direction Of hell. Because what is good enough? --An original Poem by me, Kendra Crews

You're beautiful just the way you are. Don't transform yourself to make others happy. Colbie Caillat's song is about seeing the true you without trying. It's wonderful how she, herself, removes all of her makeup by the end of the video. "You don't have to try so hard. You don't have to give it all away. You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up. You don't have to change a single thing."

Don't worry, girls!

Sometimes children with curly, kinky hair don't feel as beautiful as their straight haired peers. Stereotypes, a lack of kinky hair in the media and teasing at school are problems, but they also get the wrong perception of their hair from family. Set the "good hair/ bad hair" nonsense aside and be an example for a curly kid in your life. Teach him or her to love and care for those coils and zig zags and all those inhibitions will disappear!

Many people blame dolls on the self confidence of young girls so this image struck me as funny

In a 1998 study, 72% of the overweight Fijian women said they would not change their weight, and 8% of those women expressed wishes to gain weight. In both Nauru and Tahiti, larger bodies are also regarded as more beautiful than thinner ones, and they are even viewed as indications of health, fertility, and “connectedness to the community.”

So many women (and men) have a distorted self-image and this video is incredibly encouraging and uplifting!
