Beauty. Beauty. What is beauty? To some beauty is solely dependent on a persons looks. While to others beauty is viewed as inner beauty and how someone is in the inside. To those people, inner beauty is more important than outer appearance. It is difficult to fully define beauty because everyone has their own perspective about beauty. The definition of beauty is based on the person and how they choose to define it. To most the word beauty is seen as outer and physical appearance. Many cultures tend to value the way a person looks more than their personality. That value is passed down from one generation to the next by families, peers, and the media. It has become apart of our society that young children have adapted to this way of thinking and feeling about physical beauty. The show Toddlers & Tiaras is an example because it follows families of young contestants in child beauty pageants. The Contestants moms train and force their young girls to do things like waxing their eyebrows and wearing heavy makeup. These young girls are shaped to think that their outer look is the only that will get them to win and gives them what they want. Many view beauty as physical appearance and they are not wrong, but they fail to realize inner beauty. Inner beauty is considered by one’s personality and morality. We tend to judge others’ quickly and harshly based on their appearance. For example, a guy with black skin, thick beard, and big muscles is considered scary and violent. Another guy is seen as cute and trustworthy because he has white skin and a baby face. Those judgments are not often true because we do not get to know their real inner side. A beautiful looking person with an ugly heart is truly ugly. That person’s ugly personality causes many to not like them and view them as a bad person. In contrast, a not good looking person with a beautiful heart is beautiful. They express their inner beauty by caring and loving other people. Their inner beauty attracts others and allows them to create long lasting bonds with others. My interpretation of beauty is that you can only be truly beautiful if your inner self and personality is beautiful. Beauty is not being appreciated by other people because it can be formed within one’s self. To me, beauty is to overcome your bias against your body, learn to appreciate and love what you’re naturally created with.
