With the bombardment of young, skinny, and tall girl pictures on every conceivable media, we normal people start questioning ourselves. The idea that these images are photoshopped just helps us sleep at night as we try to ignore the gorgeous girls we meet face to face in reality. Well, guess what? It doesn’t matter how these women look, it matters how you perceive yourself.
Right? Isn’t this what we are told to teach our daughters? Aren’t we supposed to show them that inner beauty is all that matters even though snapchat filters are great for your pride? Images of 14 year old girls then vs. 14 year old now are hilarious and yet, so not hilarious because of what they represent. Maybe she’s born with it? Maybe it’s makeup or maybe it’s plastic surgery.
In my brainwashed mind, I’ve come to perceive tall and skinny as beautiful and elegant. When a tall and skinny lady wears a dress, it looks good. It basically falls on her with so much grace that the short and stubby will never have because when she wants to wear a long dress she needs to have it first altered to be her length and then she needs to buy grandiose heels to compensate for the lack of height. She also needs a corset or a ridiculous diet for a few years in advance.
Also, tall girls have longer legs. Do you understand that? They have more “leg”. They also have more “arm” and more “torso”. So their weight gets divided around and the 150 pound tall girl looks great but when it comes to the 150 pound short girl she “needs to lay off the carbs.”
Well, in my mind, I am tall and skinny. I will always love to eat my carbs and I will always have less “leg, arms, and torso” to distribute my weight. Because of my predisposition towards elegance being for the tall and skinny, I think I have altered my self perception to that of a model because I don’t hate myself. I actually like myself very much and don’t mind the extra pounds around.
Yes, in my mind I’m tall, skinny and elegant. #grateful
