What is the definition of "beauty?" What defines beauty?
What is it to be beautiful?
Beauty is confidence. Many people in the celebrity
world view beauty as one's physical appearance. They are not
wrong: there is physical beauty, but people fail to realize inner
beauty. Confidence has been shown in many makeover shows such as
Ten Years Younger or Make Me a Supermodel to make
people's physical and inner beauty increase dramatically.
Confidence allows self-esteem to heighten, and grants the person
more positive thinking in their view of life. Confidence in
oneself is needed to reveal the true beauty in every person.
The perception of beauty is immensely broad, making
it an exceptionally complex topic, as there are many ideas about
beauty. An example of such, there is a certain ethnic group in
Africa who believe having rings to elongate their neck is
beautiful. Also, bound feet in China are a well-known perspective
of beauty. These are merely several ancient traditions of
physical attractiveness; seeing inner beauty is another way to
view beauty. People are beginning to believe that confidence and
beauty are interlinked. In search of evidence to support this
argument, "When you have confidence in yourself you tend to dress
with the clothes that fit you the best..... That looks good on
them. They take care of themselves... On top of that, I smile a
lot more because I'm happy with myself. Smiles are always
attractive. When they can see that amount of self respect it
makes everyone around you feel good and when that happens beauty
radiates from everyone." (answers.yahoo.com: How are beauty and
confidence interlinked?) This is one case on how beauty and
confidence are connected. However, dressing as yourself, and
being happy and proud of who you are, is another sign of
confidence that increases external and internal beauty. Other
people, especially friends nearby, will notice others' happiness
and confidence, which will make them more attractive. Subjective
and objective beauty is vital, and when one feels positive and is
grateful for their attractive qualities, they will be more
confident, and their true beauty will be shown.
Beauty is confidence. Some people fail to realize
this; however, the moral that confidence and beauty are connected
is beginning to spread. Confidence will increase self-esteem,
happiness, and pride in oneself, and the true beauty of the
person will soon be revealed.
