Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder
A woman walks by with long beautiful flowing hair, awesome shape, perfect lips, perfect nose and beautiful skin; she's considered a Goddess. All heads turn as soon as this woman saunters down the street. She doesn't acknowledge the glances she receives, she continues on her way as if there was no one in sight. Before she continues on her path she drops something; it's her lipstick. One of the men hurries to retrieve the lipstick and gives it to her. She takes the lipstick without a smile or saying two simple words; thank you.
Another woman walks by that happens to be average looking; cropped off dark hair, thick glasses, blemished complexion and somewhat on the heavy side. She so happens to be carrying three bags and drops one. She struggles to pick up the bag with the items that she dropped. She had to place the other bags down in order to maintain. Meanwhile, there are several men standing nearby that notice her, but do not offer to help.
I gave these two examples because we're taught that beauty is in the eye of the beholder; is this true? Television as well as the media in general always portrays people of beauty; you must have a particular shape, face, skin tone, height and weight. If you don't possess an asymmetry face, clef in chin and etceteras, you won't make the cut. They say it's the knowledge you posses and attitude, but in this world it's not about your manners or having the perfect attitude it's all about the look. No one wants to be the ugly duckling if it was so we wouldn't have plastic surgeons and oodles of cosmetics,
Even God has a thing for beauty. He created the heavens and earth. The sky is blue, the reflection from the waters is blue and it also states in the bible that the Devil was the most beautiful Angel created. Everyone reacts to a beautiful person far different from an average looking person. Test it out for your self and see where you fit in with this Beauty scenario. But in order for pretty to withstand you must have and acknowledge the ugly.
Think about it
