I learned a long time ago, it doesn’t matter how others view me as long as I feel good about myself. The movie, I Feel Pretty staring actress/comedian Amy Schumer is a good film that tackles the whole self-perception subject.
Amy, who plays a young woman named Renee Bennett, is a very smart and a fun person to be around. Although, Renee had so much going for herself, she was very unhappy and insecure due to being overweight. It wasn’t until a turn of events that she started viewing herself in a new beautiful light which made her feel pretty. What made this movie even more amusing, was the only person who could see her new found light was, Renee.
After Renee’s anew, you could see her confidence rising. She had a new walk, talk and attitude. She tried things she never tried before and wasn’t scared of anything or anyone especially, men. It’s funny how an event can change who you start to become.
Although, Renees’ new life was finally perfect, she later started to realize often with change we sometimes forget what made us happy in the first place.
We all have issues with ourselves whether we want to admit. There USED to be a time when I wanted to switch places with every pretty girl walking. As I grew older, I figured out, I didn’t have to be able to walk to be viewed as being attractive. I did however strive to enhance my good qualities and keep a positive attitude.
Have you ever seen a beautiful person from a far but when he or she opened their mouth, you were taken back by their awful attitude just from a conversation? It doesn’t matter how pretty you are if you have a bad disposition…no one will want to bother with you.
Feeling pretty comes from within and this movie depicts this discovery in a great way.
Be sure to put this one on your to watch list. You’ll be glad you did.
