Over time, society has developed some interesting standards of beauty. These are largely unrealistic expectations that ultimately make the majority of the population, especially moms, feel unworthy or not good enough. It will take a major shift in focus, with conscious efforts and hard work from everyone to attempt to change that focus. And even more importantly, it will take years and no small effort to rewire the minds of those who have grown to believe less than the truth about themselves as a result of those unrealistic standards.
The good news is that there is always a way to make a change, and every giant change begins with the small changes within individuals. Believing that you have worth, no matter what you look like or how well you do or do not fit into society’s cookie cutter formulas, is a big first step in breaking the ugly habits and perspectives that society has perpetuated for too long.
The freedom of feeling good about yourself
It is no secret that there are plenty of people who put a lot of work into their appearance. Whether they are trying to look younger, more toned, or as flawless as possible, it is quite the common practice. However the unfortunate side of the type of work that is done on the self is the tendency to become addicted to striving for a perfection that you will never see. Too many Botox injections, or repetitive plastic surgeries, or similar procedures that are done with the idea that perfection will at last be attained, are dangerous to the individual’s mental health and self-esteem.
On the other hand, if the individual seeking Botox injections or microneedling treatments is happy with who they are and just looking for a little boost or pampering, the outcome will be quite different. There is a pleasant, carefree joy in not taking yourself or your looks so seriously, and if you can let go some of the urges to attain perfection, you can actually enjoy the fresh look!
Choosing your treatment
Many people opt to go for a Botox injection, which helps prevent lines and wrinkles from the breakdown of your natural collagen. But this is not the only choice that you have available to you. Getting spa treatments and facials can help supply you with that refreshed feeling on your face while being completely noninvasive. Or, on the other end of the spectrum, you could check out microneedling, which sounds a bit frightening, but many people find it to be very worth it. Using very small needles, tiny holes are created in the skin, which kickstarts your body’s natural healing abilities. It can also help to produce elastin and collagen, which help bring vibrancy to your skin.
The most important thing to remember is to be happy and comfortable in the skin that you are in. From there you will be happy to see how smoothly life seems to go. It is much easier to enjoy the many pleasures in life when you aren’t worried about the fact that you might not measure up to society’s expectations.
