Ann Curry hinted at limitations of self.
With Ann Curry set to grace Ladies Home Journal August hard cover issue the outlet has releases a video of the time that the former NBC co anchor sat down with the journal to discuss thoughtful topics such as aging, achievement, the Summer Olympics and beauty. Of course what makes the interview so uncanny is who could have known back in May when it all took place what awaited Ms Curry literally around the corner.
What though caught this author’s attention was the response Ms Curry gave to the following question:
On what she’d change about herself:
“I don’t always understand my worth. I think it’s a chronic condition for women. I’m not talking about professionally. I’m talking about in our personal lives. We constantly punish ourselves with degrading thoughts when we look at ourselves in the mirror. We allow people to treat us poorly, we allow our husbands or boyfriends to get away with things or we have relationships with girlfriends or colleagues who don’t treat us well. We don’t defend ourselves as we would our own children. Women have demanded and gotten better jobs and more power. But the one thing we deserve is a better relationship with ourselves. We waste too much time beating ourselves up. I think at my age of 55, it’s time to stop doing that.”
The video too also shows the 55 year old Ms Curry in a more intimate repose than most of her fans and viewers are used to seeing her and one is struck by the degree of candor and savvy that she portrays as she reflects on the questions asked of her. Such are the banal days of media….
