Would you ever consider plastic surgery?
I have been against it for the longest time.
It was only for Hollywood stars who wanted to show off how wrinkle and maintenance free they look, even without make up.
It is insane how often the internet refers to Kylie Jenner as “natural beauty”.
This another one of those occasions where I want to shout “Are you for real?!“.
How gullible does the media think we are?!
The first time I experienced plastic surgery to someone close to me, was when my friend announced that she wanted a breast surgery in order to achieve a cup D.
What is your initial reaction to this?
Some of you might think “Girl, just be happy what your momma gave ya. Men don’t like fake boobs anyhow”.
I guess it could be my reaction.
However, she didn’t intent to enlarge them.
The poor girl was struggling with backaches due to her cup G!
Not to mention how rare and more expensive larger bra’s are.
I thought it was a brave and amazing step she took a the age of 20, but then she started this whole “body positivity” campaign around it.
One of those terms I never had any affirmation with.
Or perhaps I don’t understand it.
Why do you need to promote positivity for something that everyone owns?
Whenever the media shows an overweight woman, the reaction always seem to go towards the extremes.
Either she is announced as fat and ugly.
Or she is a sexy, curvy “Queen”.
I find both statements hard to digest.
Calling someone ugly has always been against my standards.
But also, let’s not overuse the term “curvy”.
Nobody needs to be stick thin (I am far from it) , but these days it seems like obesity is promoted.
And let’s be real, it’s not healthy.
Then there are some body positivity influencers, that are probably skinnier than the average person, who claim to be called “fat” a lot.
I find this hard to believe.
I mean, yes, if you decide to start an internet career, there is a high chance that you will be criticized.
It’s not something anyone justifies.
Yet, we all do it.
Consciously or Unconsciously.
Spoken or Unspoken.
But you always have the option to avoid this kind of Insta-famous life and do the regular 9 to 5 job.
This will not make all the comments disappear, but you probably won’t have 1 million followers. So definitely less.
I have had my fair share of criticism.
Nothing that I hadn’t figured out myself, so their views are completely useless and annoying.
I actually do know that I look angry, tired or bored.
It took me a while, but I finally found out why this is.
First thing noticeable are the gigantic balloons under my eyes.
On top of that, I have a sagging eyelid on my right side.
And I’ll be honest, I have been googling remedies.
Botox is the first option. Although I am scared of needles, I am almost considering it.
But natural remedies say that putting eggwhite on your eyelid should also do the trick.
I guess we’re eating eggs tonight.
If anyone has issues with sagging eyelids, I’d be more than happy to hear your advice!
Have you ever done or considered plastic surgery?
Would you in the future?
What do you think about all these body positivity influencers? Is it too much?
