I had the idea for this video so one day my friend and I decided to make it. We were so surprised and happy at the huge amount of great feedback we got back. Hope you enjoy! :)

Such an important message, I myself have struggled with my feelings on my insecurities. Nobody is perfect and beauty standards change is something every girl should keep in mind.

I don't think very many people realize how much of a struggle it is for women and girls all over the world to have self confidence. This is a beautiful video, and I love it so much!

I love your insight on this topic! And that was a very creative way of portraying the negative influence. Everyone was made beautiful, even if society denotes that. I do think to stay healthy is a good thing, but stressing about it and harming yourself over it is too much. I hope everyone who watched this was impacted in one way or another. I know you girls have already made a huge impact. Keep up the good work!

¨There is no such thing as bad. We have evolved to attach an emotional significance to what is nothing more than the survival strategy of a pack animal. We are conditioned to invest divinity in unity. Good isn't really good, bad isn't really bad, bottoms aren't really pretty. You are a prisoner of your own meat.¨

This was such an empowering video that really makes people think about those statistics especially at the end, and then when we think about them how true they end up being and how many people each of us know like that.

I like and hate a lot of things.

This video was absolutely amazing and I think it will make so many people realize what what girls feel the need to do everyday to fit into society's idea of perfect

It is better to write for yourself and have no audience than write for your audience and have no self.

i know i'm going to sound really cheesy, but your videos about society's negative influence are so meaningful to me. You videos kind of helped me see that maybe i DONT need to wear makeup every day, or worry about how much i weigh, or what people think of me. thank you so much:)

Oh, no i completely agree, guys definitely go through these sort of things as well. As i'm a girl though, i just wanted to nail the girl issues. It would be awesome for a guy to do a video like this though, as i'm not exactly sure what their insecurities are. And wow, you compaired me to Keira Knightly, life now offically made!! haha :)

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

Perfect, the music and the editing of the video! The message was very moving--she is so pretty too (: Very well done!
