#dailyPLUS: I choose to be conscious. Not manipulated.
„Jane got her body in perfect shape thanks to the MiraclePill.” “ Kate’s wrinkles reduced with 30% thanks to the MiracleCream”
There is only one miracle in the above sentences: if you believe them. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t aim to question the effects of certain products however we all know the secret behind those before-after images, thanks to a really miraculous program. This program can turn back the time with 20 years to make anyone look younger and slimmer in order to achieve the long wished “perfect body”. There is only one problem with this miraculous program: when overused to manipulate us, when the cover girl herself can’t recognise her body & face. It’s incredibly important to be conscious! No need to blame magazines or advertisers as no one can force you to believe what they fabricate to you. Be conscious and realise when being manipulated. Your happiness doesn’t depend on having one more or less wrinkle, believe me. Just as your success is not determined by your waistline (unless you are a pro fitness champion). Get to know yourself, make a realistic and healthy list of your values to create a healthy self-image. Because it’s not your flawless skin that makes you a valuable woman, you know that, right?
