Letting go of body hate is far from possible if we are continuously convinced that if we try hard enough, we could make our imperfections disappear. We need to break free from the false idea that perfection actually exists and accept that everybody has an imperfection about them. We buy into the myth that skin creams and diet pills can give us a perfect body because it is everywhere; ads on the internet, pictures in magazines, movies on the big screens, protein supplement labels – the perfect body is plastered all around us. The perfect body is a hypothetical idea, it is dreamed up and then brought to life but don’t be fooled. All media images and messages are constructions, they are not reflections of reality and they have been carefully crafted with the intent to send a very specific message. Perfection is an illusion that seems nice on the surface but it just is not reality. Anyone who goes through life expecting perfection from their body or anything else is bound to be disappointed.
