How we perceive ourselves and other people plays a huge impact on us as humans. Perception is the process of attaining awareness. When we see shows on television such as Victoria Secret Annual Fashion show we see beautiful, thin, perfect women who have no flaws. What might that do to a women's self-esteem? I'm sure it immediately makes most women start to compare them selves to those models. That will most likely decrease her self-esteem. That is a huge problem with today's generation and society because we see it everywhere. Little girls are growing up watching this and are pressured to look like those women and it's also causing psychological problems along with it. I think that self-esteem on a women or a man is so important to strive for. You must accept yourself for who you are and understand that it's okay to be you. Well I brought up this subject because I remember seeing a commercial that is showing women how these "tv women" are completely made up and photo shopped. It is for women to understand that these women do have flaws and aren't perfect. The commercial is sponsored by the Dove Self-Esteem Fund. I think that as a big brand like Dove they are certainly using their fame in a more positive way. And at the end of the commercial it says "No wonder our perception of beauty is distorted." I just feel that it is great to see things like this out there because they are needed especially in today's society.
