Description

This video takes a look into how society relates happiness with beauty. We are shown that beautiful people are happy, but that does not mean that to be happy, one must be beautiful. Body acceptance has become a big movement in the past few years, but there is still a long way to go. Pictures of models in magazines, the actors on television, and the people on the runway all influence children and teens - more than one would expect. Unfortunately, eating disorders are prevalent in teens partially due to the slim models seen on the daily. The reason we are told that beauty brings happiness is because it does. Beauty does not always mean the standard seenin magazines, it can mean beautiful scenery, a place you find relaxing or a meal with your family. Beauty is all around us. We need to begin looking for beauty in the places and faces around us and the beauty in ourselves will shine through.
