The Dysmorphobic xyz Generation

Dysmorphobia

Noun /

An obsessive focus on a perceived flaw in appearance.

The flaw may be minor or imagined. But the person may spend hours a day trying to fix it. The person may try many cosmetic procedures or exercise to excess.

Another one to perhaps blame on social media or the fact that you can photoshop, or in ’real life’ have any ’flaw’ fixed. ANY. You can now wake up no make up and look amazing, yawn & act like that’s just you… Naturally.

As this tiny one said at the beginning of 2020 – it’s my natural year. Little chuckle as this just means no more photoshop – I can’t afford any treatments and quite honestly am pretty scared of them!

Knowing my quirky blonde luck – I would land up with one eyebrow in my hairline and the other under my last eye. Yup lazy eye – a flaw – call 911 who can live with that. Well, me.

This post started with me looking at this pic and questioning every aspect of my face. I mean, I know I don’t fall under the average looking meridian but people said wow exquisite???

My reaction? Would I upload as is? Unfiltered, no facetune.. The horror! I see droopy eyes, a skew nose, pixie ears, imperfect skin and so much more just a tweak could fix.

But, I promised to embrace me this year. Flaws and all.

And you know what? I’m happier. No pressure. No hunts for likes. Just embracing this 37 year old growing OLD, naturally. And my confidence us growing in leaps and bounds. Shout out to the flaws we should embrace, clearly.

And just a shoutout to those who think a girl thinks she us an 11 out of 10. Unless you get to date J Lo most of us feel like a 7 on good days.

So when you see a girl with even one beautiful feature, tell her. You may give her a day feeling like an 8!

Ps. Picture posted naturally.

Love always and a day
