Lose weight can be an obsession for a lot of people, especially women, and especially the most vulnerable of them: our teenagers. Of course, overweight has medical contraindications (and we are talking about real overweight) but in most cases, young girls want to be extra-thinner (then, skeletal) only for enhancing reasons, and these reasons can be so dangerous for their health as overweight. In the most tragic case, we could talk about anorexia.
However, beauty is only an abstract idea. This idea has changed through times and every person has a different concept, also today. Of course, there are trends, and insecure people don’t dare to express an opinion against the trend. If you think that silicone lips are horrible as well as disproportionately large breasts in relation to the body, you never say it in your secondary school, because people can laugh at yourself, and to cite lots of famous stars, sculpted in the operating room.
But 50 years ago people have a very different opinion about beauty, and Audrey Hepburn, who was skinny, hadn’t silicone in any part. At least, she was proportionate… and happy!
How about other centuries? To be skinny was ugly, and men liked curvy women. Have you ever seen Impressionist paintings? From Monet to Renoir, skinny girls were ugly. Being skeleton was synonymous with starvation! And how about the models of Goya, Rubens, Rembrandt… Picasso, Sargent or Matisse? They were well proportionate and not starving girls.
Of course, we can say the same speaking about men. But at the moment, opinions are more cruel for women.
Be happy with your body and forget stupid trends, because they can change tomorrow!
“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.” Audrey Hepburn.
