There are so many things related to the media that we don’t notice on a daily basis. Were just so used to turning on the television and watching a regular shows, or even browsing the Internet on various sites. Magazine covers certainly don’t stand out is unusual and there are many images that inundate us on a regular basis that don’t really make us think twice. It’s not until you step back and get an overall perspective on what’s happening that you really get a picture of how all of these things can affect us. In the overall scheme of things, it’s impossible to think of how we aren’t influenced by what we see all around us. There are images and betrayals of perfection that are impossible to live up to. Add in spicy mixed messages, double entendres, or outright advertisements that basically use sex to sell, and you’ve got a recipe for body image issues.
