While doing research for a piece on body image I ran across this brief video. Two entrances, one headed “Beautiful” and the other headed “Average”. Women had to choose one or the other to get into a building.
I was rapt as I watched it the first time, the second time and the third.
As engaged as I was, the video also kicked up a lot of feelings. My reaction was more visceral than that of the youth in the “Lady or the Tiger”. I hope that I would have walked through the door marked “Beautiful” but I probably would have walked away rather than be forced to choose.
Why wouldn’t I choose being beautiful- aren’t I? Why not? Just asking that question on a public site gives me chills.
What’s wrong with us that we struggle to see our own beauty?
Which would you choose?
Let me know by taking this one question survey, leaving a comment, or both.
