Why would we get undressed to feel more confident in ourselves? Do women need to feel beautiful?
We are exposed daily to images of sexy women. The female physique has been alluring for all time. The abundance of magazines, billboards, social media posts, and more sell products by displaying sexy women. The hint of sexual allusion was extremely popular to show sexy, and sex sells. With professional models and image filters covering magazines, billboards, TV, and social media, we start young by benchmarking our body expectations.
We start to judge ourselves and doubt our body image. What we should be, what we could be, and the beauty product industry is proof at $500 billion annually. On average, women spend $150 on keeping up their beauty in a year.
Keeping up your appearances and wanting to feel pretty is perfectly normal.
Sometimes we drown in the notions of our beauty not being precisely up to par with our dreams or what we think society’s illusions are.
Over the years (I am guilty of this too), I hear women say, “I don’t see what he sees. He tells me I am beautiful, but he has to say that”
Our mind bank has stored so many images of what women should look like that when we get to a mirror; our minds find fault in what we see.
Why do we have some perceptions of how we should look like? No one wants to feel that we are too consumed with our appearance.
That is where self-confidence comes in. Self-confidence is the trust in your abilities and judgments to value yourself and feel worthy regardless of any imperfections or what others think about you.
