We live in the age of anti-aging, there is no doubt about that. Because cosmetic surgery procedures and non-surgical treatments like Botox are so popular, it’s hard to believe that anyone would feel apprehensive about what others may think of them for addressing cosmetic concerns. This is, in fact, a common occurrence. It reminds us that we have room to grow in how we show up in life. Judgments that are set aside are the best kind, even if those judgments are in your mind.
There are benefits to overcoming the fear of what others may think of your move toward looking on the outside the way you feel on the inside.
Ignore Outside Influence
- It’s your self-esteem at play, here. There is nothing vain about recognizing the relationship between outward appearance and inner confidence. Nothing is gained by refusing to address the cosmetic concerns that are keeping you stuck in a cycle of low self-esteem. Research has shown time and time again that improved aesthetic appreciation of oneself paves the way for a better outlook on life in general.
- Cosmetic treatment can shift your focus. Why might you need this? Because cosmetic concerns can loom large in a person’s life. If you notice the bags under your eyes several times a day and think about them when you’re interacting with coworkers or friends, your focus is on a perceived flaw in yourself. Get rid of the flaw, and you are free to begin to notice all the great things that were always there but rarely appreciated, like your compassion or your book smarts.
- They don’t matter, anyway. When it comes to your appearance, your voice and opinion reign supreme. Taking steps to address cosmetic concerns strengthens your trust in yourself, your independent nature, and your self-love. Who would have thought that so much could result from a cosmetic procedure!
