Is it in the eye of the beholder?
Is there a “code” that most of us go by for a person being BEAUTIFUL (HANDSOME)? Do you have to be model thin and have the perfect hair and physical features to be considered desirable? Must you have a rock hard abs and a lean toned muscular body? Is it what their soul has, how they treat others, or just the outside appearance? Is it their attitude, personality or how good they look in a bikini or swimming trunks? Do their eyes capture you or their body? What’s the first thing you look at when you see a person? Most people will say that it’s the eyes that catch them; but is it always true?
What makes you notice the person to look close enough to see their eyes? Is it their laugh, smile, figure, shape, or coloring? Have you ever thought how you define beauty? Or how it affects the people that you choose to be in a relations with? A lot of the time we judge a book by its cover. Most of the time the books that look the most interesting on the cover are the ones that are the most boring after you get in them, read what they say, and their meaning. You will hear people tell that you’re beautiful (handsome) but do they mean it? Are they telling you what you want to hear? Or speaking the truth?
Everyone in their own way is beautiful (handsome) each of us has something to add to the world. One person can affect so many others that without that person the world would not be the same. If you sit there and think about it.. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You can have 10 people look at a person and they will each see different things that are in fact true to them. I think that society today has a great impact on people, especially, younger people that want to be accepted and thought of as “popular”. They look, talk, or act a certain way to make themselves fit in with the crowd. In my opinion, all that the media does is have a negative effect on people.
When it comes to who’s aesthetically pleasing to look at and others who are less than symmetrical. I think of all the young people that have disorders because they are striving for what society promotes as normal and it saddens my heart. Most people associate things like this with just girls but it has just the same effect on boys that it does on girls. Everyone’s self confidence is shifted, changed, lowered, or raised by what people say to them or about them. Granted, some people are comfortable with themselves that no matter what others say they will always hold themselves high and know that they are beautiful/handsome. But not everyone is secure enough to “roll with the punches”.
I’m here to tell you that, in fact, you are BEAUTIFUL just the way you are and you don’t need to worry about that five pounds you want to lose. Choose to see the light in others and it will shine so brightly back at you that other people will see your light too! It’s contagious and people worth having around will see it.
Be you. Be yourself. Be beautiful!
