More than Flesh and Bones.
Its difficult to admit that most of our lives have essentially been running around the way we thought we looked in front of the world.
This morning I woke up with the thought of fixing body image issues.
What matters so much more than those people judging you and telling you you're not good enough is what you do.
I've been less skeptical about my work or relationships or anything else for that matter.
This week when I was to give a presentation on Corporate Reconstruction Laws, all that kept pulling me down was the thought that I don't feel as confident about my body as I used to.
The way the criticism is dealt with is not appreciable.
It pushes a person down, the effect is not just mental. Judgement reduces focus on important things, and brings the spirit down.
Appreciating what we've got and the way we've dealt with the problems is crucial. It's necessary we look past a few little dark patches and acknowledge the large bright ones.
To a certain extent the drive to write in a platform without identity attachment (here) was to prevent people from judgement when they read the content.
I think its not our fault. We've been growing up in an era of better connectivity and this has meant that our Facebook profile picture says more about us than we in person. I think its time we reconsidered the questions on what really matters.
I'm glad people have started realizing it.
