Why we don’t like our appearance

People who never retouch their photos on social media are rare. Many people like to apply filters to pictures, remove imperfections on the face and figure. But some do not need “improvements” because they are confident, and they need to adjust the brightness of the photo.

There are not so many people in the world who love and accept themselves as they are! Why is this happening?

Reasons we don’t like our appearance

Why is this happening, and how to deal with it? There are several reasons…

Due to body dysmorphic disorder

This is a syndrome in which people find it very difficult to communicate with others and live. And all because they are too worried about their appearance. Due to such a mental disorder, a person may refuse to leave the house altogether.

Because of bullying

Perhaps as a child, the girl was often offended at school, telling her that she had crooked legs or a big nose. Sometimes the mother and father also instil complexes in adolescents.

And even if these shortcomings are mostly far-fetched and completely biased, over time, the girl begins to believe in them with all her soul and considers them to be true.

Due to perfectionism

This phenomenon causes stress and anxiety since a person is constantly chasing an invented and, most likely, unattainable ideal, which does not exist in nature either.

Because of the beautiful pictures that are cheating

It’s no secret that bloggers and celebrities from Instagram photoshopped their big bellies and legs to appear slim and attractive.

Ordinary girls are watching them perceive all this farce as if it were true and then begin to believe that something is wrong with their appearance because it is far from “ideal”.

Due to drastic changes in appearance

Stress, illness, pregnancy and childbirth can negatively affect a woman’s appearance. A woman cannot come to terms with the way she looks, so she begins to hate her appearance.

Due to the age crisis

This usually happens by the age of forty or fifty. The woman begins to understand that old age is not far off, and the reflection in the mirror suits her less and less …

What if you don’t like your appearance?

First, you need to understand that few people care about your appearance as much as you think. It is common for a person to worry about himself first and only then notice that someone showed up to the store without makeup or in a crumpled T-shirt.

Secondly, you need to make a list of things that you like about yourself, and then a second list where you describe everything that does not suit you in appearance. After that, think about what you could do with the cons. If it’s overweight, then it’s time to go on a diet and exercise.

Thirdly, try to communicate more with people who are comfortable with everything in themselves and who can be called a “person without complexes”. You can learn a lot from them.

Don’t be afraid to see yourself in different ways. Whether you recovered or lost weight is not a reason to be angry with yourself or give up. The appearance of grey hair or wrinkles shouldn’t scare you either. Remember that you can look like an older adult at the age of fifty, or you can look like a well-groomed and beautiful woman at seventy. Which one will you choose?
