For thousands of years, people all over the world had pondered upon the definition of beautiful.
Every different part of this world has its own unique set of traits that they consider beautiful. Tan skin is the ultimate beauty goal for many pale bodies of the west. Fair and blush skin tone is considered true beauty in the land of Asians. In every part of the world, people celebrate and appreciate their self-defined beauty.
However, ever since the advent of the media, it has opened up a whole novel world to every individual residing on this planet. And slowly all over the world, the only true standard of beauty started to dominate. Blond hair, hourglass figure, beautiful sun-kissed skin is now the only “beautiful “ considered in the world. Otherwise, the tan skin of Asians, broad facial structures of Africans and every other unique bodily trait of every individual of this planet is now considered ugly.
More celebrities attaining this ‘beauty’ goal made the viewers more interested in this fake beauty world. Girls all over the world started to spend millions of dollars to attain this beauty figure. Putting your body under the knife and getting horrible procedures done to their bodies is one of the most dreadful things ever and especially taking this risk all for the sake of human-made beauty standards is straight-up dangerous and stupid.
In today’s modern world, big lips, curvy body and kind hairs are today’s “beautiful”.
People have drowned themselves in the world of fake beauty. The individuality of the person is nowhere to be found. Even the most beautiful people in the world will point out their insecurities which are all influenced by the ‘social media’s version of beautiful’. People have lost the sense that their own unique features add to their beauty and compels every eye to admire them.
Starting from the 21st century, many people have come forward to fight against this inhumane practice. Convincing someone that their own natural “perfect” self is something to be questioned upon is the crime people are fighting against. Celebrities and influencers inspire millions of people to accept their natural selves and are also coming forward with their own inspirational stories of how they accept their natural selves and fight against all feelings of self-doubt. There is no doubt that this new modern practice has influenced millions and has made people realize why they do not need someone else to tell them they are perfect. Appreciating one’s own individuality is something which is taught now all over the world.
Millions of people still need to believe that their real self does not need an outsider’s approval to be considered beautiful.
It’s very true, everything changes in the world dramatically. What was considered beautiful long ago is not considered beautiful now? Everyone at this age is fighting to get the Kylie Jenner or the Kim K figure. Big lips, curvy body and kind hairs are today’s “beautiful”. There are still confused minds in the world who are willing to change themselves to get this fake beauty goal.
Creating these unhealthy beauty versions creates risk for all other feeble minds out there. People who are convinced that this is beautiful are willing to hurt themselves to get all the possible procedures done. Millions lose their precious lives and some seriously get hurt.
Media is such a powerful tool now and if it can convince people to change their physical self then it also has the ability to influence people to love themselves who they are. Many campaigns are being done to promote self-worth and self-love but it still needs to be done at a global level and millions of people still need to believe that their real self does not need an outsider’s approval to be considered beautiful.
The answer to the question ‘who is beautiful?’ is simple. Everything is beautiful. It is the mind that needs to be convinced. Every skin tone, every hair colour, eye shape, all the physical figures are beautiful.
