think beauty will forever be, to a large degree,
subjective. Or, to quote the old adage, "Beauty is
in the eye of the beholder."
began to notice in high school that the girls who
were attractive but very self-confident, or from a
rich family that offered prestige or beautiful
clothes, were often more popular than some girls
who were very pretty without self-confidence or
prestigious homes. I believe an attractive girl who
is self confident will often be perceived in the
eyes of others as equally or more desirable than a
beautiful girl who is shy and lacks self esteem.
What do you think
your opinions to us.
much of the way we are perceived has to do with our
own perception of ourselves.
one is truly honest, not all super-models are
beautiful in the classical sense......many are a
bit off beat looking, but they act beautiful and
are perceived as such. (I will admit they are
almost all tall.)....What we believe about
ourselves is very,very powerful.
affects us and those around us.....I was from a
home where life was difficult,money was not in
abundance, and compliments were scarce.........I
grew up to be someone in my youth that was
considered beautiful. I knew because many told me,
including sponsors of beauty contest and heads of
modeling agencies , but my poor self esteem had to
be conquered. Many women who were attractive with
self confidence were more successful than I was in
their relationships. I am very grateful for the
beauty of face that others appreciated, but I know
that a good self image will put you over in life
and is of tantamount importance.
tell your children that YOU believe they are
handsome, special, beautiful, pretty and one of a
kind, and tell them a lot. They will believe you
and their positive attitudes will cause others to
know that they are special. "As a man thinks in his
heart, so he is".
