Inner Beauty

Someone once asked me whether inner beauty is really appreciated in today's realistic society. This is what I have to say:

Just ask the people around you.
Look at what the media portrays.

He is the one with the masculine body and tall stature.
She is the one with a curvy body and big eyes.

Who cares whether he has a kind heart as long as he has a photogenic smile?
Who cares whether she is generous so long as she's slim and tall?

I beg to differ.

His smile may be nothing more than a pretense.
Her figure may shadow a cold heart.

It's easy to find a body sculpted to perfection, but it's otherwise to find a heart moulded to perfection.
The first has a temporal value that fades with time, while the other grows and learns with each passing day.

It's pointless to look glamorous and pretty without basic courtesy.
A heart of gold is worth more than a face of gold.

It's normal if you don't look like Hollywood stars. So long as you are kind and nice to the people around you, that's all that matters. This is my opinion and stand: Inner beauty beats outer beauty. To each his own.

Inner beauty is definitely very important. But the truth is, humans are superficial >__<; Even though we try not to be because we're taught it's morally wrong and politically incorrect. But how often have we judged a person's character from their appearances? I know I have done that one time too many... U__U; Appearances are important because first impressions of someone tend to stick for a long time and it won't change unless something happens to change pardigms. >.>; And trust me, if you look good, you'll be more confident. Confidence is a sort of inner beauty, no? ^^; *sigh... call me jaded...
lovely post though, Steph ^^*

I guess people need a little bit of education to help them see the true beauty.

True, confidence is can be attained by looking good. But it only lasts when you look good. People grow old and beauty fades. Confidence obtained through ways other than beauty will be more lasting.

Thanks for the compliment Tynee :D

Well said and very thoughtful! One needs only look at a sampling of blogs out there to see how obsessed people are with outer beauty.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Thanks Cynthia :)
True people are too concerned over their outlook rather than their characters and personalities.

Welcome :D
