I watched a wise and touching documentary today: Kroppen Min (“My Body”), by a Norwegian female documentary maker.
It is striking how so many in this culture are unhappy with their own body – mostly because of how they think others perceive them… In my experience, most people value authenticity far more than “perfection”. And most people are much more concerned about themselves than others… (This unhappiness is another example of how other’s commercial interests can form our views when we allow them to).
Personally, I am far more disturbed when someone feels they need to hide/mask how they are (make-up, surgery etc) rather than by an normally odd, “imperfect”, authentic and beautiful body… Authenticity is beautiful. How can it be otherwise?
