Do you care what you look like at the beach/pool/aquatic recreational centers?
I've noticed, that as I've gotten older, balder, grayer, plumper, wiser, that I could care less of other's perception of my body while I am in public. To many others in this day-and-age it is the exact opposite. Blame media, society, processed meat or whatever, but many have overly-dramatic fears of public beauty or perception of such. Should everyone be on a Jersey shore, heavily tanned and ripped bods? Or is the ultimate unattainable enlightenment is that we will never see ourselves like others do? Those blissfully ignorant of this, or with the fortitude of not caring, better off? What do you think?
