When you’re young and in love, the feeling of infatuation “youre feeling” at the beginning of the relationship can be fairly overwhelming. Of course, it can be overwhelming in a good way, but unfortunately, it can also take its toll in the worst possible way. Especially if your partner manipulates you into believing that you’ll never be good enough.
In a bid to impress your partner, you may end up doing something rash and solely regrettable. Now hindsight may be a wonderful thing years down the line, but as soon as you come to the realization that you’ve done something that you can’t ever undo, and for someone who was never worth it anyway, it can be incredibly painful. It happens to the best of us- even those of us who are relatively popular and high-profile. In fact, if you know anything about popular culture in Hong Kong, you may be aware of a certain YouTube starring by the name of Berry Ng. Berry is a 22 -year-old vlogger who has a message to share with the world- love yourself for what you are because otherwise, you’ll always live your life at the mercy of other people’s opinions. And Berry knows better than most people what that’s like as she made the catastrophic mistake of undergoing a whopping 30 plastic surgeries just so that she could impress her boyfriend. This is what she looked like before her cosmetic surgeries: Astonishingly, Berry had the first procedure when she was only 16 years old and has since spent an estimated total of $3,000 on her 30 procedures. She claims that her boyfriend would repeatedly blame her physical appearance and compare her to supermodels in order to belittle her. Now, at 22 years old, she looks like this: “At that moment, if[ my boyfriend] had stopped me and told me that I was beautiful enough, I would have stopped, but he didn’t, ” she said. So which parts of her body did Berry set out to change? Well, ultimately she had run done on her eyes, forehead, cheeks , nose, chin, and breasts. She aimed to imitate the appearance of her boyfriend’s favorite adult movie star and claims that when he was watching X-rated films featuring women who were well-endowed, “he would holler’ How big! How great.’” But when Berry had her own breasts enlarged, her boyfriend wasn’t impressed in the slightest and was reportedly confused as to why she had the procedure done in the first place. When Berry’s mother considered her daughter for the first time following the procedure, she broke down in tears as her daughter had changed practically beyond recognition. It was only then that the 22 -year-old realized that she had taken her preoccupation with impressing her boyfriend much too far. Ultimately, Berry decided to leave her boyfriend because she knew that she would never feel attractive enough for him. She has also promised herself to never go under the knife again and wants to share her tale with others. In doing that, she hopes to help those who are considering cosmetic surgery make an informed decision about whether it is the right road for them to take after all. Berry also has another important message she wants to share with the world: “I may have a very fake face, but I have a truer heart than most.” What we should take from her terms is something we should all have known anyway: don’t judge a volume by its cover-up. Yes, Berry has undergone an astonishing amount of surgery purely to impress her boyfriend, but she has since learned that her own sentiment of herself matters a great deal more than her ex’s.
