there are only a few things that i'm really self conscious about, like my legs and arms, and while i'm not thinking negative thoughts necessarily i'm thinking that i'm just average. this kind of thought process is exactly what dove's latest commercial is all about. as i was watching it my first thought was that i'd walk through the average door and not regret it; but then as i kept watching i realized that i would be doing that based off of comparing myself to others and not just focusing on me and my beauty. after this realization i knew that i'd regret walking through the average door because when i'm not comparing myself to others i have less negative and average thoughts. this realization is exactly what dove is trying to achieve with their ads and i'm hoping that this light build sticks with me, and most importantly other girls as well. we need to stop comparing ourselves to others and basing our beauty on them. we need to chose beauty, and that's exactly what i'm going to try to do everyday.
