I Admire Inner Beauty

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 46,593 People

    I am often asked 'what attracts you to another

    person?' and the answer is always expected to be a physical attribute. People are often surprised when I say I like a person who can stimulate my mind, steal my focus and ensnare me with their words. Sure, a nice smile and some gorgeous eyes are a bonus, but that isn't a true...

    So I'm a Muslim and attend a religious school

    but when I'm in the bathroom and the girls take their scarfs off.. Woah! The hair is so beautiful, it's like the icing on top of the cake 👌

    it shines brighter than any star in the sky.

    it is not easily hidden or covered up. No make up ever necessary because it is already perfection. it runs deeper and stronger than the strongest river. it is bigger and more beautiful than the most majestic mountain. oh to have such a beauty would make me feel fortunate.

    So I went to this hospital to see one of my

    friends who was very sick! While I was in the waiting room this girl with cancer came to get her mom and she looked at me and why " will I ever be as beautiful as you." I almost cried and said " sweetheart beauty comes from within not on the outside, your very beautiful!" As she...

    Beauty is present in all creation,

    but the danger lies in the fact that we allow ourselves to be influenced by what people think. We deny our own beauty because others can't or won't recognize it. We try to imitate what we see around us. We try to be what other people think of as 'pretty' & little by little, our...

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,

    they say. Beauty is a conceptualisation of each beholder. In each of us, there is a beauty waiting to express itself!

    Too me that is the best kind.

    I want to give my heart to someone that feels the same way I do. I love the feeling of a great friendship and would like to find the friend and love that will last a lifetime.

    it's very easy to forget a beautiful face,

    a sexy body once you are done looking at it.. but you can never forget a kind heart.

    I think it's hard, to be pretty on the inside,

    because it's all so very subjective. I think everyone's almost always pretty on the inside, and then you get on their bad side--and then, they'll try to hurt you. They're two faced, I guess, just like Two-Face? You can tell a lot about a person--how they treat people below them...

    Evetyone has inner and outer beauty

    and for someone to tell someone else they're worthless, they're ugly - they aren't. They are perfection, everyone is perfection in someone's eyes and even if you don't have that someone yet.. Soon you will.

    admire inner beauty. Inner beauty can actually make an unattractive person look beautiful, at least to me.

    I know that no one can be replaced by anyone.

    I always choose to see the love in everyone and I know everyone is beautiful because the way we look isn't hurting anyone, so there isn't anything wrong with how we look. We are made of love

    The beauty inside. The beauty

    that we see on the outside is what gets our attention but it's the beauty on the inside that captivates us. True beauty runs deep, a warm smile, heartfelt words of encouragement, trust, faith and so much more.

    It is the only true beauty

    because the body beauty fades away soon. But your inner beauty stays for ever and that is the most important thing. So Boys and girls stop looking for hair, or body, butt ect. just get to know them and see what they are deep inside

    The most beautiful people are those

    who don't think highly of themselves. They accept who they are and what they cannot control. In a world of complete chaos, they are the serenade of serenity. Often are they shy, sometimes introverts. When you meet someone with inner beauty, you'll never forget them. They will...

    Basically think about it this way,

    we're all gonna get old, and wrinkly, and fat, and a lot of us are gonna go bald. So if you don't have a killer personality to back you up, you're gonna live a pretty lonely life.
