I’ve been giving a lot of thought to beauty and the standards society has unfortunately but expectantly placed over physical appearance.
But why is no thought given to people who emit beauty from within? Cause, let’s face it, it is much more important in a long term relationship to actually enjoy a person’s mind rather than their body.
To me, beauty must encompass these features:
-mind (intelligence, wit)
-soul (direction, ability to be humble and to show empathy)
-body (staying healthy, whatever that looks like)
I haven’t been too pleased with the ugliness I have been seeing in people for the last 4 months and I have realized that I first need to look within and take into account why “beautiful” people are becoming few and far between. This may or may not have anything to do with the person I have been lately. But I am holding on to the remnants of beauty that have kept me from complete insanity.
I’ve kept these remnants in my faith.
