Beauty standards & the women who are changing them

Beauty standards; it's a huge elephant in any room! it's constantly present anywhere you go, whether it be on the train, at your grocery store, cinema, dinner date, or even in the back of the minds of people who you first meet, but the main source of beauty standards is through our own societies high standards/opinions.

Throughout the years we've put impactful pressure on ourselves to look the part, allowing it to manifest in our careers, friendships, intimate relationships and even through the standards of others, as a society we have to stop caring and comparing ourselves to others, because they will never be in your shoes and you will never be in theirs the same way they have!...don't allow yourself to become self-critical and questionable! as in most cases, it only leads to depression and bad habits!...what happened to loving ourselves without any standards? knowing who we are and being free of what others think is the new beauty! 

Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes! what may be beautiful to you may be ugly to someone else, but having an open heart and mind is what makes you see beauty in all things. a tip to finding self-love and acceptance would be gazing into a mirror for hours, reminding yourself only of the positive things about your personality and facial features. if you do this every day before you hit the outside world of 'beauty standards' eg, on the train, at a bar, or via the media, am sure the so called beauty standards won't be able to bring your newly gained inner self-confidence down!

  4. I think we should be sensitive about the things we read online every day, some are true while some are false. I am sharing this cos I was deceived initially by some fake spell casters who goes around posting some negative reviews about good and genuine casters. They condemn the real ones and secretly provide a referential email to their victims where they can be scammed. It happened to me twice before I became observant.
    I fell to their trap the first time I needed help getting my Husband back, I was about contacting Dr. Wakina for help before seeing a strange review that said negative things about him which got me discouraged and made me contact the alternative email they provided, and I was scammed. I tried the second guy because of my desperation, but he did the same thing and stopped replying my emails. This situation caused me to become so curious to really know the good and fake caster between Dr. Wakina and them.
    There was a huge difference between them, Dr. Wakina is a master filled with wisdom and experience, he gave the accurate reading of my life, even one of my deepest secret. Dr. Wakina restored my marriage like a Boss he is at the exact date, time and location. His work was so magical.
    After the work, I understood why people are so jealous and try to be him. Like I said earlier, there is a huge difference between Dr. Wakina and others, it was confirmed after the spell he did on my Husband. So be careful while searching for a real spell caster. Here is Dr. Wakina contact email:
