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.
