Society's Ideal Girl

How society views women.

Society's Ideal Girl

Have you ever felt like you are not good enough or not pretty or small enough? I know I have. Life is hard when you’re a girl, I mean at least from my point of view. Society has taught me that I have to look and act a certain way to be perfect. You see advertisements and commercials, even shows of skinny girls with nice legs and big boobs. I know that when I was a little girl I always thought that my smaller friends were much prettier than me because that is how I grew up. I was never one of those girls that was the ideal girl. Growing up, I never wore makeup and never did my hair or had girly clothes. I would always be second looked by many of the boys in my class because they always thought of me as one of the guys. Since I wasn’t their ideal girl they never even gave me any chances. There is a difference between a normal girl and the world’s idea of the perfect girl.

The Ideal Girl:
To the world the ideal girl is someone with a perfect body and perfect facial features. Men are brainwashed to think this way because of advertisements and societies picturesque girl. The ideal girl wears makeup and is in good shape. Due to all of these ideals on what girls are supposed to look like girls become anorexic or bulimic. Most girls also try and change facial features, such as the Kylie Jenner lips.

The Normal Girl:
Everyone is normal in their own way. You don’t have to follow the status quo. You can be who you want to be. People will love you just the way that you are and if not you don’t need those people in your life. There is really no definition of the word normal. Just what people think is normal, so I believe that even though every girl is unique they believe that they are normal. Everyone is beautiful and perfect in their own way.

Honestly I am not skinny, I am not the prettiest and maybe not even the smartest. Yet in my eyes and many of my friend’s eyes I am perfect in my own way. I am a kind hearted, trustworthy, person and I wouldn’t want to be anyone else.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
