Are you trying to say that this person (and by that I mean beauty) sees everyone else as "perfect"
and because of that she sees herself as imperfect and worthless? I like the line "you must shine the light on your flaws"
I'm so sorry, I didn't realise this question was posted, but thank you for asking. It's even more insidious - she focuses on the photoshopped and surgically enhanced 'perfection' in the media and is in the cycle of trying to achieve it. But it's just not possible (especially for the photoshopped images) so she is stuck with her 'flaws' and the internal voice of judgment (the beholder) which says you're not good enough and NEVER will be. It's irrational and part of her knows it (hence the opening question) but the pull of this OCD behaviour outweighs any rational behaviour. I'm glad you like that line because it exemplifies the powerful and direct internal voice that controls her.
I wrote a poem with related themes called The Black Angel's Yen, which is up as a hub.
Interesting insights. Oh and I found out there is an Irish MEP who is trying to at least get airbrushed images in teen magazines labelled so people know they've been airbrushed. It's a start. http://www.thejournal.ie/airbrushing-te … azines-951

I've often said, the issue of being afraid to come out of the closet, is because you don't want to lose a loved one, a family member who might stop loving you because you are gay. I've also said, WHO CARES! Happiness is what you need in life. This thought of family, family, family... is just so...

Is it just a fact of life that some will resonate with you and others will feel threatened or despise you because of your writing? Is it just human nature that many people hold on to rigid beliefs? Just a fact of life that some people are on different wavelengths and find it hard to see the...
