Striving to Be Non-Judgmental

For me, part of becoming a better person and discovering the beauty in others is striving to be a non-judgmental person. It’s been quite a challenge for me, especially when I see women who obviously have had plastic surgery. The old Maria would have labeled these women “fake”, but now I realize that as women we all want the same thing. We just want to feel good and be beautiful. It’s not my place to judge another woman simply by how she looks without even having a conversation with her.

I went to the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Guide and came upon this interesting statistic: Since 1997 there has been an increase of 444 percent in the total number of cosmetic procedures. Also, if you do a search for “Houston plastic surgery” you come across over a million web pages solely on this topic. What has caused this increase in procedures?

Although I don’t judge women for deciding to get plastic surgery, I do blame the beauty and fashion industries for playing a role in making women feel that if they don’t look a certain way, they will not be considered to be “beautiful“.
