Beauty is so easily overrated. An omnipresent characteristic, beauty has stolen the eye of today? s youth. Gone are the days where a person? s inner beauty accounted for so much more then his / her outer beauty. Where how you styled the eloquence in your conversations mattered more then how you styled your hair. What is it about beauty that drives everyone to possess but a fraction of it? In the end, it all comes down to acceptance. People think that once they are beautiful, their friends, their peers and their companions will accept them.
Problem is, it? s true for the most part. Because everyone is so absorbed with outer beauty that once they find someone who possesses it, they are automatically accepted. But really now, what is beauty? Here? s what I think; Beauty is a quality or combination of qualities that gives great pleasure to the senses or to the mind and spirit. This is the way I think humanity? s sense of beauty has become perverted. There are now too few who find great pleasure in their inner beauty.
Remember the quote: ? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. ? I hate to say it but I disagree. Maybe something along the lines of: ? True beauty no longer matters in anyone? s eyes? ? We as a race need to look beyond the false beauty found is Cosmo or Vogue magazine and look further, deeper into the beauty that is found within us all.
