I apologise for not posting a blog last week. In all honesty I didn’t forget I seem to be experiencing the dreaded ‘writers block’. I don’t think any inspiration has even come back but I had the feeling that if I just started writing something the words will come…
Yeah that didn’t work.
So I may just ramble a bit and see what happens.
For those of you that have watched fashion shows before you know that when you watch a show we see some of the most beautiful women in the world showing off their spectacular bodies with the confidence that is the envy of many. You might think that you could never be as sure of yourself and your body as they are but many of these models are not all they appear to be. Behind their façade of confidence, many models suffer from severe insecurity.
You Need To Look Better
Imagine for a moment that throughout your life, people are telling you to be thinner, look more tanned, and generally look better. Everyday people are telling you that you can do better, you aren’t good enough. How would that make you feel? People can take the occasional criticism but constant, every day of every year; that is a lot to handle. Many models don’t handle the stress well and suffer from the constant voice in their head telling them that they don’t look good enough. Maybe now we are getting closer to understanding how these seemingly perfect looking models aren’t quite as perfect as we imagine.
Finding somewhere to Belong
The main thing every person craves is to find somewhere they fit in. Being able to relate to other people is key to any friendship. There are not a lot of people in the world with similar experiences to models which can give them difficulty finding that acceptance. When we feel like we don’t belong it can make us feel uncomfortable and eventually leads to us questioning ourselves. Understanding is hard to come by when others think that you have it all. Models are perceived as successful, beautiful and have nothing to trouble them. It is understandable that these opinions from others make them feel unsure of themselves.
Reality is any artist that doesn’t live a normal lifestyle can struggle with day to day activities, I’m not saying this for sympathy or anything like that. It’s just to make people more aware and think a bit that’s all.
Well that blog didn’t turn out too bad. Did it? xxx
