I was driving my car the other day and listening to a local public talk radio station. On the show, Snap Judgment, Rebecca Hertz was sharing her experience of working on a reality TV show in which the women went through dramatic plastic surgery to be attractive. The show claimed to be improving the womens self esteem their transforming them on the outside. But is that possible? Does looking great on the outside transform someone to feeling great on the inside? It reminds me of the article we posted The Swan Who Thinks Like An Ugly Duckling, our negative self talk often continues. I do not believe reality shows like this one help women. I wanted to share this piece because it does what the reality show did not in that it shares what the experience was really like. It also points out how our environment changes how we think, and women surrounded by plastic surgery begin obsessing over pieces of themselves.
