In reference to Jude Okoye’s comment on why ladies surgically enhance their bodies, do you think body enhancement is as a result of low self-esteem?
Self-esteem first off, is confidence in one’s own worth or abilities; self-respect. Now, what is low self-esteem?
If self-esteem is respect for one’s self, loving one’s self, then low self-esteem is not valuing one’s self, not loving one’s self and in most cases looking down on one’s self.
So, from Jude Okoye’s point, where he asked if women only enhance their bodies for their own good. You tend to see the sense in what he says.
How many women in this generation love their body?
How many women in this generation have thoughts to make a change or have surgical enhancement?
How many women already have had several surgeries just to look good?
And no matter how many times we say we only do things for ourselves, does it really have nothing to do with our self-esteem?
I think even having the thought to change something about yourself tells a different story. I understand that some ladies are overweighed and want to lose some weight or have some defaults to correct. I can’t blame them.
I’m talking about having lips job, butt job, boobs job or even calf and hips job. There are a lot of them, and you wonder what real difference it makes.
Does it make you feel good about yourself?
Does it get you more attention?
Are you trying to have the body of someone you admire?
No matter what reason is behind it and how good you make it sound/look to yourself, I do think it is as a result of low self-esteem because if you need to surgically change something about you, either by adding or removing, it means you do not love yourself.
If you do not love yourself, you do not value yourself. If you do not value yourself, you look down on yourself, then you need something to make you feel better about yourself, to boost your self-esteem or confidence.
Meaning, the enhancement was as a result of low self-esteem.
Beauty is not all about having the perfect shaped face or having the hourglass body. Beauty depends on how you wear what you have, whether you are plus size, slim or curvy.
No matter how much difference you do to your body, it can only make you feel so good. It doesn’t completely boost your self-confidence, it only creates more insecurities and the guys are beginning to outgrow it.
So, to what end do you put your life at risk, laid on a table? Just to look good?
Surgical enhancement, in my opinion, is overrated. You are beautiful just the way you are, own it and rock it.
