Recently there's something that's been preying on my mind for quite a while and it's how women are given these unrealistic expectations on how they should look, act, speak, or sometimes feel about something in order for them to be considered "worthy" whether it be on social media or in real life in general.

I've met many people, especially guys, that like to make fun of feminism and how it's so unnecessary, how nowadays "everything is equal" and we shouldn't be complaining, and blah blah blah...

Honestly though if this were the case, if both men and women "equal", how come girls are criticized way more when it comes to something such as shallow as their appearance? And many times, girls are the ones who do this to other girls.

We've set these standards for ourselves that if we don't look a certain way or like certain things, we aren't valuable or cool enough?!

Now there's many things I don't understand, and this is certainly one of them. No matter who you are, where you come from, your sexuality, your interests, YOU ARE WORTHY, YOU ARE LOVED, AND YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, in the words of Grace Vanderwaal, you are PERFECTLY IMPERFECT, and we all have to slowly learn to accept that and be okay with it (and this goes for everyone).

A lot of us, mainly women, try to keep up this front on instagram or whatever on how perfect our lives are. That "perfect body", "perfect face", "perfect life", doesn't exist. Cause guess what? WE'RE NOT PERFECT. No matter how hard we try, we'll never be perfect. What you consider a "flaw" might be someone else's desires, and just like how they're clueless about your insecurities, you're completely clueless about theirs too.

I believe "perfection" is an exception to the quote "Nothing is impossible", because after all we are all only humans.
