” She is beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She is beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her abilityto make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul.”
– F. Scott Fitzgerald
Beauty is not in the face; beauty is what you are as a human being. It is how you feel inside and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.
When you are a good human being, you have kindness and grace. And this makes you beautiful. You shine. When you are unafraid of being who you are, you look beautiful. Your love, your courage, your craziness, your talents, your flaws, all these things make you beautiful. All these things make you unique. Embrace it, your ups and downs, merits and failures, strength and flaws. Just outer beauty is like a decoration on an empty box. Fall in love with yourself so that you can give love to others. Accept yourself as a glorious mess. You are most beautiful when you are comfortable and you are comfortable when you are YOU.
I once read the following quote by the author Nikita Gill.
“What if Cinderella had an attitude problem and Snow White just liked the idea of strangers and poisons too much?
What if the Little Mermaid always enjoyed human company more than her own kind’s and Sleeping Beauty just liked her solitude more than human touch?
What if the only rabbit hole Alice ever fell down was a terrible mistake with a awful substance, never discussed as such?
What if they locked Wendy away for hallucinating about Neverland and a boy who never grew up?
What if fairytales aren’t as innocent as they sound and even princesses aren’t perfect?
What if I told you that your damage doesn’t define you and the way you survive is no one else’s damned business?”
So, here it is we have this fixed frame of beauty which we have believed all our life with the help of this characters. But what if we change who they were and just keep their exterior looks. Will you still find them beautiful !?! Maybe the answer is a No.
