At one point, I know everyone has asked the question: “Would I be happier if I looked like that person?” Envy is everywhere and we all fall prey to it. It is our perceived perception of image that lends credibility to the person who we think they may be. Irrelevant is who they really are inside.
The TED talks are integral in understanding various aspects of human nature. I invite you to take ten minutes out of your day to listen to Cameron Russell, a supermodel who has worked in the industry for ten years. Her message is simple, but the gravity of what she articulates is worth understanding. Click on the link below.
I am listening to it right now. I kind of knew the photos were not real, but to see the side by side photos were startling.
It’s sad that the industry and media portray beauty the way they do and thus so many women are insecure and uncomfortable with their natural selves (including these models). Thanks for sharing this. I think Cameron Russell showed great courage for her honesty. I think she is lovely in both outfits but the second definitely made her more approachable.
That’s very powerful. Thanks for sharing. I’m posting it to FB!!!
