Do you wish you could have a celebrity cosmetic surgery and be instantly popular? Do you constantly feel vain and ashamed about your preoccupation with your appearance, exercise, eating and weight? Are your feelings so pervasive that you are tormented by them to no end? Do you also go to great lengths to hide your concerns? If you answer is ‘yes’ to any of these questions, this article is for you.
Interviews with women who have undergone bariatric surgery and full body makeovers surprisingly reveal that they do not feel better after spending hundreds of thousands of dollars creating themselves by putting themselves under the knife. This begs the question, “Why?” This is because they inevitably feel like frauds. High maintenance women who work hard to look good feel like frauds because they know the process involves enormous effort, money and deception. Deep down in their hearts they know the product they have co-created with their surgeons is not them. Feeling like a fraud engenders chronic destructive stress and anxiety. These feelings are all pervasive and keep you trapped because you feel vulnerable about being exposed as an imposter. This sets up a vicious cycle where you “cannot rest on your laurels”. Your anxiety and stress further exacerbate your obsessive need to improve yet another imperfection on your body thus setting you up for a series of never-ending procedures. You have put yourself in a “no-win” situation.
The only way out is to learn to value and accept yourself and treat your body with a great deal of respect. After all, it is the “temple of your soul”. Give your body what it really needs and stop torturing it. Remember, those who mind how you look do not matter and those who matter do not mind how you look! Cutting yourself to look beautiful certainly does not cut it!
