Define Perfection

Perfection is something every person pursues and desires. We, yes all of us, strive for it, but is it really obtainable? So what is perfection anyways? Does any of the following: flawless skin, crystal clear blue eyes, full lips, a dainty nose, a muscular body, a curvy figure, or even simply beautiful ever come across your mind when someone says perfect?

Every day, we are constantly bombarded by the media around us whether we are on the internet or simply on the bus. Commercials and ads are everywhere, and what do we see ever so often, perhaps a little too often? How to lose 20 lbs in less than a month. Secrets to the perfect diet for a slim figure. Top 10 tricks to applying mascara. With the media’s constant brainwashing, eating disorders and depression are now spreading like wildfire. People want to be beautiful, loved, envied, and most of all perfect, but they fail to realize the truth behind the flawlessness of Hollywood and magazine covers. So how do models and starlets always look like goddesses? Big thanks to photoshop and cosmetics. Tons of it. Some of that beauty may still be natural, but natural to what degree?

As contradictory as it may sound, perfection is to be imperfect unlike what our society is telling us. This is what makes each and every one of us different, unique. As you can see, our yearning for flawlessness has introduced plastic surgery, a perfect way to get rid of insecurities, but what if everyone changed themselves to look like the standard image of gorgeous, our synonym for perfection? Like how all sheep in a herd look alike, can you call one out of the dozens beautiful?

See for yourselves. The definition of perfection.

    The before-and-after is definitely dramatic. If this is how commercial models do their job, then i guess everyone can be featured on a billboard (:

    it’s true that so many people strive to be “perfect” but in the meantime lose who they really are

    Very well said! It is unfortunate that many people do not value and love how unique and beautiful that they really are.

    Thank you all for agreeing with me. I find that it’s sad how many people get affected by the media and fail to realize the uniqueness that makes them an individual.

    This is excellent and realistic. It’s one of the negative impacts of how technology influences us these days. I’m glad that your message was delivered clearly.

    so true! so very true! why are we all trying to fit in when we were made to stand out! it’s an ideal that is unacheivable, so we shouldn’t sacrifice our health, personality, and self esteem to it!

    Oh I saw this a while back. Shocking what the industry will do in order to sell products. Good to see more people are becoming aware of these issues!
