What Does True Beauty Mean - Defining Beautiful
We've all heard the saying “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. It answers the question, "What is beauty?".

I bet most of us have no idea what it really means. In simple terms, it means that one person might think something is beautiful and another will think the opposite.

That will make no sense to some of us because the media made us believe that beauty can only fit into one box.

Honestly, I had no idea what that saying meant until I stopped seeing beauty as something the media portrayed and started seeing it as so much more.

What is the meaning of true beauty?

For most of my life, I believed that I was not beautiful. I had really bad skin, too skinny, too short and a weird personality.

I think the main reason was that I look nothing like my family. The people that I’m closest to did not resemble me in any way.

No, I’m not adopted or swapped at birth. Well, I hope not! I just came into this world differently.

The one that never fits in anywhere. It took me almost my whole life to realize that different can also be beautiful.

Once I started believing that I was not the lost ugly duckling, my outside reality changed. I got more compliments suddenly.

I think it had to do with the fact that I felt more confident and people saw that. I guess confidence is also beautiful.

I still hate taking pics of myself, but I’m a work in progress and as long as I’m still working on slaying my demons, then I know I’ll be fine.

There are so many things that make a person beautiful. Someone that’s brave, strong or selfless is beautiful.

The person that always has kind words and a smile for others to brighten their day, is beautiful.

Someone that’s smart, creative and uses their minds to make this world better, is beautiful.

The ones that are different are the most beautiful because most of them had to try to fit into a box that was not made for them.

The list can go on and on, but of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we all see beauty differently.

For those who keep comparing themselves to others…Stop! You are never going to be that person. Ever!

God did not make a mistake when he created you. The things that you see as your imperfections can be beautiful to someone else.

We all like different things. That’s a fact. The word ugly should not even exist. Erase it from your vocabulary.

Find the things that make you beautiful, while remembering beauty does not only exist on the outside but on the inside as well.

Accept the things you see as imperfections as part of what makes you, you. They make you special and different. Different is beautiful.

Who wants to be like everybody else anyway, right? Only once you love yourself, then the words of others and their judgment won’t hurt you anymore.

If someone insults you, then you can either choose to let it hurt you or you can say to yourself, “So what, that is not the only thing that defines me. I have so many other amazing qualities”.

Don’t be defined by one thing. You’re a combination of many wonderful things that make you unique and beautiful.

Reminding myself of the fact that I'm not just a face and a body, helped me see that beauty is so much more.

I consist of so many different things. I might not be perfect and that's ok. I no longer wish that I was someone else or think God made a mistake when he created me.

My hope for you is to see your beauty and to be confident so that others can see it too. I hope that you can find beauty in this world in places where you never thought it would exist.

Lastly, I hope that you will see the beauty in others by looking at everything they are and not just how they look on the outside.

Until next time,
