Let your true colors shine

“You with the sad eyes, don’t be discouraged
Oh, I realize it’s hard to take courage
In a world full of people, you can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you can make you feel so small
But I see your true colors shining through
I see your true colors, and that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show –  your true colors
True colors are beautiful like a rainbow”
Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly

During any given day in the United States, we can be exposed to dozens of images of the ideal body type, along with a multitude of dieting ads. Most of the images are airbrushed and digitally enhanced, creating a conflicted perceptions of reality.

I like this video which illustrates the impact this disconnect can have on even the most well-rounded, self-assured person. It has become much harder to find reinforcement not to buy into these myths of perfection, but we must persist in resisting this urge.
