Although most people may have assumed this before research proved it, women are more prone to sensitivity upon rejection based on their appearance than men.
No surprise that those women who hold society’s attractiveness model as their own standards are even more sensitive to rejection, according to a United Press International (UPI) article.
It really looks like we as a society need to change our standards. I know it’s getting better. For example, companies like Dove are promoting real beauty. However, it’s not actually changing in Hollywood, and that’s where most women look for their standards of beauty.
You don’t have to be thin and have a perfect complexion to be beautiful. It’s really all internal. There are so many “beautiful” women out there now, probably with the help of surgery and makeup, but there are far few women, and people in general, who match their external beauty with their internal beauty.
Internal beauty should be the focus. Yes, women should take care of their bodies. But everyone is born with different body types and women shouldn’t get themselves worked up over something that might never happen and something they can’t change.
Just remember, you are beautiful the way you are! Your personality is what matters most and what makes you unique and beautiful. If you are worried about what men think, well, the only man worth your time will also focus mainly on your personality.
