On the verge of turning 50, actress Gwyneth Paltrow opened up about acceptance and said she put aside “the need to be perfect”
Gwyneth Paltrow made a reflection on the aging on its health, wellness and lifestyle website, Goop. The actress, who will turn 50 on September 27, shared a photo of her appearing while jumping in a bikini and confessed that she has decided to accept herself and put aside “the need to be perfect”.
“I am attached to this feeling of desire, of promise – promise of falling, of something fading – just like I was 30 years ago. I understand on some level that life is linear, that I have lived x number of days so far. and I have more in the basket under my arm than in the field in front of me. But there is something in the sweetness of life that is within me that does not change, that will not change. It is the essence of the essence. It seems to be improving. . ” he confessed at the beginning of the text.
Therefore, Paltrow spoke of the change in the appearance and markings of the body. “Scarred from oven burns, a finger pinched in a window long ago, the birth of a baby. Silver hair and fine wrinkles. While I do what I can to strive for good health and longevity, to avoid weakening muscle and receding bones., I have a mantra that I insert into those reckless thoughts that try to get in my way: I accept, I accept the marks and the loose skin, the wrinkles, I accept my body and let go of the need to be perfect, to look perfect , defying gravity, defying logic, defying humanity. I accept my humanity “insured.
The actress, among other things, revealed that in the course of her life she has disappointed some people and has often betrayed herself. “I hurt people, never intentionally, but I did it anyway. D.I let people down by not being what they needed me to be. I betrayed myself to keep the peace. I have overstepped the limits, whose thoughts sometimes pull me out of sleep and suspend me in the emptiness of shame for a long and dark night “.
Also, in the outburst, Gwyneth Paltrow went on to talk about aging and revealed what she would do if she could go back in time. “People often ask, ‘What if you could go back to your 21-year-old self and give him some advice?’ Well, I would know my limit and hold on to it harder than my life. Yet, perhaps the most important question is what will I do from now on. “ underlined.
“I would like to take a small step back. G.I would like to make my circle smaller. I would like to cook more dinner. G.I would like misunderstandings to turn into understandings. I would like to continue to open the deepest part of myself to my husband, even if it scares me. I’d love to sing more, even if it’s just in the shower. I would like to tell everyone who has had a bad experience with me that I am very sorry. I would like to fully recognize myself “he admitted then.
Finally, Gwyneth completed the text by reflecting on the new cycle. “Maybe their memory isn’t just that I’m elated, or that I regret the things I missed or didn’t realize. I hope they can see me feel all things and keep the complexity of that notion. Balance the balance of acceptance and Also responsibility. It’s an art. And I won’t really know what it was like to turn 50 until much later, when I can think about it from a higher position, perhaps one of the 1950s.
