26/30: Worldy Things

26. What popular notion do you think the world has most wrong?

I think there are several things that the world has wrong, but the most wrong?  The most wrong notion is the perception and expectations placed on women by the media and the problems it creates for fantastic women.

It sorta starts with Barbie, she's not exactly a realistic version of a human being {not that that will stop me from purchasing them for my future daughters}.  The problem has been exaggerated by the high expectations that we hold for ourselves.  Not everyone is going to look like Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie, and we have to accept that!  The best that any of us can do is be the best version of ourselves.  We are all going to have flaws, and if you are with someone who can't appreciate you with your flaws, you need to move on.

I am a firm believer in being your best self and trying to ignore what the world thinks you should be.  Don't get me wrong, this is one of the hardest things ever to do, but I think it is the only way to be completely and unconditionally happy with your life.  If you wander through the world looking at what everyone else has you'll never be happy, or fully satisfied.  Be the best you and you'll find someone who loves every single part of it.
