Quite simply, it puts pressure on people to achieve ideals . . . which in turn can lead to feeling not good enough, putting oneself in a state where they are even less comfortable in their own skin, should they already not be—mostly—impressed and satisfied with what they see when they look in the mirror. It can also be an inception point of unease to those who were previously pretty satisfied with themselves.
I’m glad that, for the most part, that advertising campaign and movement is mostly dead in the water due to the righteous backlash.
Be very wary about how advertising and others may influence you about how you feel about yourself—in any sphere.
When it comes to weight loss—only set about doing so if it’s right for YOU and not to make anyone else happy or to fit an ideal. A caveat to that would be if you were obese or morbidly obese, as this can lead to a shorter lifespan.
Thanks for reading.
