At home today, enjoying my day off, I decided to tune into MTV’s True Life: I don’t like my small breasts
. They followed two young ladies on their quest to gain bigger breast without giving into plastic surgery. The first young lady, a go-go dancer, wanted bigger breast to help further her career. She also believes she will have more self confidence, despite her fiance’ telling her she is beautiful the way she is. She decides to order a supplement to “naturally” enhance her breast first. Fast forward to the end, the “natural” supplement doesn’t work and she decides to save money to get a breast enhancement. The second young lady, a freshman in college and professional dancer, wants bigger breast with hopes that it will help her land a position on a professional football team’s cheerleading squad. It doesn’t help that her mother is pushing her to do the surgery. In the end, through the help of a therapist, she decides that she doesn’t need bigger breast and that she is happy with the way she looks.
I don’t have the so-called “physical issue” these ladies have, I’m very well off in that area. BUT I have dealt with low self confidence in other physical areas. It’s a shame that society has placed it in our head that Double D’s, fair skin, straight hair, and/or a thin figure can gain confidence and acceptance in this world. We as women must accept our differences, stop seeking others opinion on what is “beautiful”, and stand up and say “I LOVE WHO I AM AND I AM BEAUTIFUL”!
