This issue is important to me because many people, mainly girls, today feel insecure about the way they look. They feel pressured to look a certain way because people make them feel down about the way they look.

Obsessed with their appearance

Many girls wake up in the morning and put on makeup to cover up their spots or acne and other insecurities they have with their skin. This is clearly because they hate their own skin and put on another layer to feel good about themselves.

Looking ‘good’ in photos

Many teenagers and young adults have social media accounts nowadays, and on those accounts, they post pictures of themselves and others. This means that many people are judged on their appearances. Apps like Photoshop allow you to change your features or the whole picture. Many people do this due to not liking the way they look.

Cyberbullying

Social media is a huge thing in our generation and many of the people don’t feel ‘pretty’ or look ‘nice’. Cyberbullying is the main cause of this and as more people join every day it is going to increase. This could lead to physical bullying, self-hate, and depression.

Love yourself

You should love yourself and not let anyone say anything that will put you down. This is because you are your own person and every person is different.
