Why are we made to feel ashamed of our wrinkles?
Wrinkles are a part of who you are. They are a recording of the times you’ve smiled, laughed and cried. They’re who you’ve loved, how you’ve been loved, your adventures and your challenges. Your children’s sleepless nights, cuddles and so much more. They are essentially a part of who you are. So why are we made to feel ashamed of them? To erase them?
What is it about a wrinkle that triggers feelings of insecurity, anxiety and embarrassment?
Who has created this pressure for us to irradiate who we are in the quest for eternal youth?
I’m always reminded of the strange 1992 film ‘Death Becomes Her’ with Goldie Hawn and Bruce Willis. Remember it? Injections of foreign substances, covering imperfections with artificial chemicals, serums promising eternal youth.
Yes, look after your skin. Be healthy and look healthy. But be proud of who you are. You are beautiful. After all, nature saw fit to make you what you are. And there’s nothing more perfect than nature.
