Something you feel strongly about:
I understand that it’s a personal choice for every individual, and I don’t condemn anyone who has done it (maybe a little.. secretly.. ~_~), but for me, I will never get plastic surgery. Several reasons why: 1. You shorten the definition of beauty by seeking to achieve a specific look set up by society’s opinionated criteria on what is considered beautiful. 2. My home country, Korea, is notorious for plastic surgery. Its culture encourages sameness and conformity. I don’t think conformity is a bad thing per se, but when it comes to physical beauty, there should be a variety, not a standard. Besides, in Korea, it’s considered the norm. Naturally, even my parents have suggested that I get it done when I’m older. It only deepened my revulsion against it because conformity may be a value in Korea, but it’s not a value I share. 3. Some may argue that it’s an effective self-esteem booster for people who may have felt insecure about themselves all their lives; but I’m dubious to believe that one will gain radically genuine self-confidence overnight with a new face or body. Insecurity is an enemy we all fight against. If one focuses more on building their character (which takes years upon years), the internal growth process pays off as you learn to love yourself. Then, your outward appearance becomes less important, almost trivial, compared to the essence of your character - and that’s something money can’t buy 4. Aaaaand, in the words of Monica Choi LOl, it’s like slapping God in the face and saying, “I’m not satisfied with what You made of me, so I’m going to take it in my own hands to change it.” 5. Imperfection is real and cute and lovable. Plus, on days when you really don’t feel good about yourself, …we all know make-up does wonders :) I may not believe in plastic surgery, but I do believe in the right amount of make-up!
