Chances are you've already watched this video that has gone viral on social media. It's an ad for a soap brand so you can imagine how a number of people conceptualized this and made sure that it'll move people to tears, but no matter the reason why it was made, it's message rings true. We really our own worst critics. We constantly poke fun at ourselves, discriminate against our imperfections, and compare ourselves to our idea of "perfection."
If you did this, how do you think you would have described yourself? Do you have a healthy self-image? Or are you one of those people who think you're never pretty enough, smart enough, or good enough? If you look through TeenTalk, a number of you love looking for products that will make you slimmer, make your skin fairer, make your boobs bigger. What is this obsession with being anything other than you? There's nothing wrong with wanting to become a better version of you, but there's a huge difference when you want to alter your looks because you think you don't fit a certain type or mold. We always talk about loving your body and accepting your flaws, but do we really practice this?
Tell us what you think of the ad and how it affects you if it does. We'd love to talk about things like this with you. The comments are open to everyone if you'd like to discuss it.
