Ouch! A good question to think twice about, Bridget.
So true. Impossible standards to uphold and air brushed perfection often have that effect.
Wonderfully said! I was at the dentist this am & there was one sentence in an article that asked: "Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could go an entire day without commenting on anyone's appearance? Instead, compliment what they're doing!" Thanks Bridget, and Merry Christmas.
I subscribed to O for awhile when it was new. I got so irritated with the ads that I would go through and pull them out before reading the magazine. When I looked at what little was left, I realized that the money was NOT well-spent!
Wow! Big truth here!
Oh boy - a pointy question! Why do we so often put ourselves through this? I purchase few magazines these days. Ezines and blogs are free and it takes only a click to unsubscribe.
The only magazines I read are the ones in the doctor's waiting room. It's amazing how many I can get through while waiting for an appointment - how quickly pages turn. (And how issues of the same magazine contradict each other.) Great poem, Bridget.
Thanks, Tabatha! Save your $2.98 for something more positive. =)
I know, Jama, it's a wonder many women have eating disorders. Thanks for stopping by. =)
