This my older sister Chloe and her boyfriend Ryan. They have been dating for 2 years and won cutest couple award for senior year. This weekend was supposed to be the time of their lives. This weekend was prom. The morning of prom Ryan went to the Emergency Room because he was throwing up all night and couldn’t hold down water. It turned out that his kidneys were inflamed and he was dehydrated. He wouldn’t be leaving the hospital until Monday. The night that my sister dreamed of and planned for months was destroyed. She cried all morning and there wasn’t anything I could do to make her feel better. After a few hours she decided that she was going to dress up and visit him in the hospital. When we got to the hospital we ran in search of his room. Finally we arrived and Ryan’s face immediately lit up. Ryan couldn’t move much but he hugged her anyways. Chloe pinned his flower on his gown. They took pictures together posing and kissing and laughing. They held hands, talked, smiled and laughed. At one point they were just smiling at each other, like they were the only people in the room. They looked like the happiest people in the world. This was that moment. The moment when they just lovingly looked into each others eyes and smiled. The moment when all the bad things that were going on vanished. The moment when, this was the time of their life. This is what she dreamed of all her life. This is what he wanted to give her for so long. This was the moment when you saw, what true love really is.
When my daughter first showed signs of hating herself, I got out photoshop. We went and found an image of her choosing, of a woman. I spent the next two hours showing her just how easy it was to alter this woman. I changed her hair, whitened her teeth, made her thinner. I erased her blemishes and even made her taller while my daughter sat there aghast. At the end of it she loudly said - ” THAT’S NOT FAIR!”
I told her that damn near every image she saw of people in magazines, on television, etc, was altered like this, and that she should never compare herself to that, because even supermodels don’t look like supermodels.
I wish I could do that for every child. I wish it was a mandatory class in school.
I AM SHOWING THIS TO EVERYONE
I SAW THIS IN CLASS BEFORE. THE TEACHER WAS ALL LIKE ”please, never compare yourself to people you see in magazines. They’re always altered. It’s as easy as that.” I ALMOST STOOD UP AND YELLED ”AMEN, MISS. AMEN.”
We watched a video where they turned a picture of Jeffrey Dean Morgan (yes, John Winchester) into a woman. It was truly amazing.
