Could it be that the source of our struggles with beauty have nothing to do with the reality of our appearance? If truly beautiful women don’t feel comfortable in their own skin, is it possible that the root of this issue is internal?
If culture is really to blame for the frustration we feel with our own
beauty, the solution to the problem seems simple. We just turn of the
television, cancel our magazine subscriptions, close our eyes every
time we pass a billboard, and throw Barbie in the trash. Then we’d
never struggle with beauty again, right?
