Why do people care so much about their body image these days? Everyone has their own look, but wants to be something that they are not.
The media is the problem; it only shows the world that perfect bodies are in style. This leads people to do crazy and do unhealthy things to their bodies which may lead to death for some people. Magazine covers for instance only show people with unreal bodies. Take Kate Moss, for example, she is a famous model. Many people want to look like her and have her perfect body. But do the people who want to look like her know her personality? How is she as a person?The society goes through certain extremes to look like a model.
It’s ridiculous to know what people would do to there health to make there bodies look fashionably sickly. The public does not realize that they do not only get judged by the way they look, but they also get judged by the way they are as a human being. Women and even men starve themselves to look skinny, and they feel that it is perfectly normal.
They do not realize until it is too late that they are only hurting themselves in the long run. Once someone has started starving themselves by either being bulimic or anorexic, they have messed up their bodies for life.Women can hurt themselves by not being able to have children in the future. Both sexes can hurt themselves by not being able to hold food down after they realize that they can die from what they are doing to their bodies. Many people do die a year from some kind of eating disorder. People in this society also take certain drugs to get the ideal body which is just as bad if not worse then starving yourself. They take things like steroids or diet pills to make their appearance look dreamlike.
Most of the society that take pills to make their appearance look unnatural think there is nothing unhealthy about that.They don’t feel like it is a disease just like anorexia and bulimia. They are wrong! Pills can hurt the body even worse then an eating disorder.
Steroids are addicting, once someone starts taking it he/she keep increasing the dosage day by day. It slows down a person’s heart which can cause him/her to have a heart attack. Diet pills on the other hand are horrible, especially if they work. Diet pills can cause someone to lose up to 10 lbs in one week. Do people know how bad that is? Did you know that a person will gain it all back plus some weight after they stop taking the pill?People don’t realize how much they go through to make themselves appear the way they want to be seen. In this society many people obtain eating disorders by trying to appear the way they feel the average person should look.
This is what is killing a lot of people. Either by popping pills or starving themselves, they are hurting their bodies. I feel that this society cares too much about appearance and not enough about how a person is. It is ridiculous what people do to themselves, not knowing what they are actually doing is crazy. They don’t realize that it’s like suicide.
They are killing themselves slowly. Is it really worth it?
