Have you ever heard that there are two types of people who have plastic surgery? It has been said that there are those who admit to having plastic surgery, and there are those who forever deny the work they’ve had done. There’s another group, though. We believe there is also a percentage of people who would like to have some cosmetic treatment, but who deny themselves the opportunity due to perceived judgment.
This judgment may come from others, or it may be the voices in your head. In any instance, there are a few simple things you need to remember about cosmetic procedures, surgical or not . . .
- Feeling good about how you look benefits your self-esteem. Our sense of confidence takes priority, or it should. Too many people go through life suffering low self-esteem. When cosmetic treatments improve outward appearance, it is possible to experience a newfound appreciation of self. When we appreciate ourselves more, regardless of how this comes about, our entire approach to and outlook on life can change for the better.
- Eliminating cosmetic concerns shift the focus from self-consciousness to self-confidence. This may sound like we’re repeating ourselves, but this point is different than our first. What happens in many instances is that a person’s concerns related to a cosmetic problem overshadow their many strengths. When the cosmetic issue is out of the picture, strengths such as a sense of humor or thoughtfulness come to the forefront. They were always there, really; it just took a bit to notice them.
- Your opinion is the only one that counts! Here’s a fact of life that we hate to bring up: we are all going to be judged by someone at some point in time. People have their opinions about others; that’s just the way it is. When it comes to undergoing cosmetic surgery or a non-surgical treatment to improve how you feel about yourself, there is not a single opinion that matters more than your own. No one’s life except your own will be changed in any way by your decision to correct a cosmetic concern. In fact, your improved attitude may bring more light and love into the world around you!
