I think all my girlfriends should see this – and your girlfriends should see it – and so on and so forth. 

In fact, I think all my guy friends should see this also.  I have the inkling that many men have the most unrealistic images of women.  We are not perfect. We have bags under our eyes, wrinkles, imperfections in our skin, freckles, bumps, etc. etc. etc. We do not wake up and magically look like we're ready to go to a party, like "reality stars" often look.  There is no director yelling "cut!" as we apply another layer of concealer, blush, highlighter, etc. 

Most of us have seen something similar, but sometimes we need a reminder. It’s insane to me how much is edited, and sad that so many of us (women in general) strive to be like some of the celebrities we are flooded with images of when many of those images are photo shopped and edited. Some edited A LOT. 

Don't let society trick you, ladies and gentlemen.  Don't let your self-esteem drop 10 points because the media has a distorted way of making us feel like shit for not being perfect, when in fact, the images they put out there are modified to SELL SELL SELL. 

You're not perfect - and that's okay.
