The Perfect Woman.

I Am Enough.

The Perfect Woman.

She is photoshopped, reshaped, surgically “enhanced” to be flawless.

She is the manipulation of the body and the misconception of truth of the feminine.

She is an ideal, a frighteningly empty expression of what it is to be human and to really live.

She doesn’t exist, she is created.

She is a myth.

This myth creates shame, fear, anxiety, repression, greed, envy, depression, disorder and disharmony in both men and women.

It is big business. It makes money. But at the cost of the repression of the sexes and a dampening of the human spirit.

There is no perfect, only beautifully real.

I love this clip: men are instrumental in the repression or liberation of woman. Beauty is in the uniqueness and the truth of the imperfections that make us all exquisitely human.
