There is so much pressure on teens, college students and all young women to meet a certain criteria. Is it really normal for all of us to attain this perfect standard? There is NO perfect person.
So many try so hard to look like their idols, that they fall victim to eating disorders, drugs to lose weight and emotional issues. There is no miraculous makeover and all those idols and movie stars, are tucked, pulled, plumped and cut to look as if they are perfect. Teeth whitened and straightened and skin peeled and plastered with makeup to hid the tiniest flaw.
These celebrities may have the money and means to change their outside appearance, but their lives are FAR from trouble-free and happy. Most show clear evidence of inner emptiness.
Your own unique identity is deeper and stronger and more beautiful and glorious than any plastic veneer that your peers or idol tries to pressure you into believing.
“You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19–20). You are a treasured possession (1 Peter 2:9).
You are a son or daughter of the Creator of the universe (Romans 8:16).
With HIS truth in your heart and mind, know that you are His perfect love and do not be deceived by the lies of the world and of peer pressure.
