What is your perception of beauty?
Lana Del Rey posted this picture to her Facebook page this morning for her video Tropico and she has been receiving a lot of ridicule via the comments. As we all know, people can be ruthless when they are hiding behind a keyboard.
There is one thing that I know for sure: Be unapologetically proud of who you are. Flaws and all. If you are, no one can make you feel less then them and they can’t tear you down. I applaud Lana for taking this photo and not having it photo shopped or airbrushed to perfection. We live in a world wear we strive for unrealistic perfection. Perfection does not exist and beauty is perceived differently by everyone. However, why do we continue to tear each other down and hold others to the standards we know don’t exist?
In a world of filters, airbrushing, photoshop, and whatever else have you it is easy to think that perfection does exist. I absolutely love it when people don’t edit themselves to oblivion. It makes them raw, real, and beautiful. That is reality.
