The Body Paper
Having a good relationship with your body is very important. I do not believe that there is anyone who has a perfect relationship with their body but I think that the one I have with my body is okay. I am aware of the fact that in many circumstances I do not treat my body as good as I would like to. I feel as though everyone abuses their body sometimes it is just that some people tend to do it more than others not realizing the long term effects that it will have on their bodies. In this paper I will discuss the relationship that I have with my body.
I will begin by asking myself the question what do I see when I look at me? Honestly when I look in the mirror I do not see an ugly or less worthy individual I just see an average person. I know that I am an attractive young lady but I do not think that I am perfect. Actually I do not see anyone that is perfect because everyone has a flaw and even people that others may classify as perfect do not see themselves as perfect. I do not understand how anyone could classify another person or themselves for that matter as perfect. Just someone may have what is known as a perfect shape does not mean that their body looks as good on the inside as it does on the outside.
Even though I don’t think that my body is perfect I am not ashamed of it. I feel comfortable with my body and the way that it looks. My body could use a little work but I think that everybody feels the same even when everyone else thinks that your body looks wonderful you may still find something or some part of your body that you are not satisfied with. For example, my best friend thinks that I have a very nice shape but I would like to tone my stomach up a little which just goes to show even though someone else may be satisfied with the way you look does not mean that you are.
I don’t understand why a lot of girls are pressuring themselves to have what America calls the perfect body. Everyone wants to look like the girls on television...
