Someone asked a group of people, both adults and children, just one question. If you could change just one thing about your body, what would you change?
Some people gave answers such as they'd like to be taller, or have better skin, which is to be expected. Surely almost everyone out there has an answer to this question as well. I for one, almost instantly thought "I'd like to be taller, and not look so 'innocent', because being a fully legal adult who's constantly mistaken for a middle school student gets kind of degrading from time to time."
The kids they asked though, didn't give answers that were putting themselves down. They gave imaginative answers such as mermaid tails, shark mouths and telepathic powers, or simply said they didn't know because they didn't want to change anything.
What's just sad is how we all go from that to how we are now. Sometimes, its other people's comments, and sometimes its simply because we compare ourselves to others. When did everyone suddenly learn to be so quick to judge and why can't we all just agree it'd be amazing to have telepathic powers?
While, yeah, this has gotten me thinking, that doesn't change that I want to straighten my curly, frizzy hair that's currently on my head as I type this. And that doesn't mean I don't still want to look my age so I can stop hearing, "Oh my god, I thought you were 12!" on a daily basis. But it did get me thinking about how things change. Its kind of a shame, and maybe if everyone could stop being so judgemental, we all could just be comfortable with what we've got. I could go so much further on this topic, but I'll just leave it at that. Think before you speak, you never know what you might be pointing out to someone.
