Look in the mirror & love what you see? How can you expect others to love you if you can’t love you

Filled With Gold

It is said when the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something has suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful.

I look in a mirror, imagining cracks on the surface filled with gold. Maybe then people would be able to see that I’m damaged.

Barbie and Body Image

Banned Body Shop Ad

Does the above image offend you?

It offended Mattel, the makers of the infamous Barbie doll. The company pulled rank, sent Body Shop a cease and desist letter, effectively yanking the ad from circulation.

Granted, this all happened about five years ago. But the fact that the image above still appears on Facebook pages asking those who agree with The Body Shop to repost to their own page in a show of support, along with the fact that I got so fired up about the topic, tells us we still have a ways to go before society stops assigning worth based on body size alone.
