    My Quest For Inner Beauty

    Do you know what the hardest thing for a person suffering with BDD is? Loving yourself. I'm going to be quite intimate and personal in this story. Almost as soon as I begin typing it out I start to cry. I hope by telling this that I'll touch at least one person out there who...

    If you are kind, compassionate

    and generous, you're always beautiful inside and out. Outside beauty fades, what's inside stays.

    So much of our culture

    and society is focused on sex and looking a certain way. Wear these clothes, be this weight, act like this! Why should I listen to you culture? I admire someone who can go against the status quo, unafraid to push the limits of what we're willing to accept because it's those...

    I think the most important quantity in a person

    is how kind they are to people and how they treat others. Inner beauty is way more important than outer and I think more people should start realizing that. Looks are not everything

    I am a man that does not believe it is all

    about looks. Although I firmly feel that there has to be some kind of chemical and physical attraction between lovers - there has to be that spark, that connection, that fire when you touch; but that doesn't mean someone has to be physically beautiful, just that something about...

    The cleanest faces are sometimes the most dirty.

    Where there is a pretty face there is arrogance. And I don't mean to say that all pretty people are self absorbed. While no one is perfect. Some will let their physical appearance define who they are. As to others, we'll lose sight of meaning. Trying to look like the "standard...

    Have you ever saw someone

    On here, I rarely see what a person actually

    looks like so I don't have to worry about liking them physically. I can really enjoy who they are as a person. It's very liberating - not having to worry about looks.

    It's rare that you'll find someone

    who has the time to look for someone's inner self, and beauty. It's quite magnificent that there are still people who aren't judgmental of people they barely know. It sucks that I haven't found a person like that yet in my life.

    You can be drop dead gorgeous,

    and be the most spiteful woman ever. Inner is just as important if not more than outer beauty. Just ask my ex.

    Wearing a Hijab (headscarf) comes with its pros

    who spends $5000 on their face and body, slathering it with oils and lotions and creams and paints and designer clothes and shares nothing with no one. ***** all that away (as they do every night) they will still be ugly inside and outside and no night cream can smooth away the...

    Inner beauty eminates in a way

    that outer beauty cannot achieve; shining, a soft glow that radiates out, touching everyone who surrounds it. So much these days are people concerned about their outer beauty; what people think of how they look- are they too fat, too thin? Wrinkles? Laughter lines? Someone who...

    I gave up a long time ago on the idea of me

    ever being attractive. I wasn’t given anything external that I would regard as being a “Good feature” nothing! So I made up my mind that what I need to strive for is to be healthy; try to eat better and exercise, which I have, and that’s been a good thing. But regardless...

    I admire people who are generous,

    kind, and who sometimes put others need above their own. I love soft hearted people. People associate kindness with weakness. However I believe that it is a strength. This world is so corrupted and cruel that it is easier to promote hate instead of love.

    Beauty isn't always what you see.

    Sometimes beauty goes way farther than just appearances. Never judge someone by how they look, they may just be the angel you've been praying for. And also, be careful! Don't trust someone just because they appear beautiful! The devil once transformed himself into an angel of...
