Appearance has become a form of currency, the MOST important form of currency. We are bombarded with messages that being beautiful is the most important thing a person can be and anything less is a flaw. Instagram is filled with men and women who have dedicated their accounts to this currency, to show not their talents, not their lives, nor their accomplishments, but to show OTHERS how they look. To have some power with beauty currency. It is not their fault, we are overexposed to beauty, and we are told 3 messages: 1) beauty is important 2)beauty looks only one way 3)we do not look that way We have come to see models and that beauty ideal as ubiquitous, and though we all understand that photoshop is a thing and models are unrealistic and they themselves look nothing like their pictures, we still internalize those messages and try to live up to them, possibly because we see nothing else. The gym has become a place to look good and not to be heathy, athletic, or take care of our body. Self objectification has become a goal, and we are making it a form of power. But like sugar, overexposure leads to illness. I'm at a loss at how to find the proper balance. We are so much more than how we look. #sanfrancisco #fitnessbypablo #fitness #exercistsf #bodyimage #beauty
