We all probably will hurry to deny it, but most of us still judging each other by appearance, especially those we’re not familiar with. And when it comes to appearance it seems there’s a general consent about what’s considered to be beautiful and what doesn’t, right? Well, we say false!

The Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder
Not only that beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder, it also depends on the way the beholder feels towards the person they’re “evaluating”. Meaning, that when someone loves you they will pay more attention to the things in you that seems beautiful to them. More than that, people can value characteristics according to their feelings. Meaning, that a certain characteristic can seem both beautiful or not – and it all depends how the beholder feels about that person.
For example: kindness is mostly an appealing characteristic as those who appreciate it will say you have a good heart, but when someone has bad feelings toward you, they will see it as a non-appealing characteristic and say you are too soft or even a “sucker”. You see, the biggest secret about beauty concept and the way we comprehend it, is the way we feel towards our surroundings. That’s why we have prejudice – it’s when we project the way someone made us once feel (mostly bad) on people who look or seem the same to us. Therefore, it is important to be aware of it and avoid judging people by their appearance and according to your unpleasant experiences.

So, the best thing to do is to love yourself, think the best about yourself, and focus on the things you love about yourself. The bottom line is to be true to yourself and whoever will think you’re beautiful, will be those who meant to love you for real!
