We all want to feel good about ourselves, and confidence in our appearance trickles down into many aspects of our lives - but what does that confidence require? An exquisite wardrobe? A lot of make up and hair product? Plastic surgery?
By going to great lengths to alter our physical appearance, are we buying into a cultural trend that has hyper-sexualized women and placed extreme value on physical allure?
For those of us with children, daughters especially, how can we expect our daughters to be able to love and accept themselves for who/how they are if we can't do the same?
We really want to hear your honest opinions and feelings and any personal experience you'd like to share. We know the answers to these questions will vary from person to person; we hope you feel comfortable to add your opinion, whatever it may be. What we really hope these discussions will yield is greater insight and understanding. We will hop in on the comment thread to add more of our thoughts and opinions.
Thanks for being here.
Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
