    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...

    You don't have to have a beautiful body to be a

    beautiful person! As long as you are yourself, whoever that may be, you are perfectly beautiful in your very own way. Thank you, for being you :)

    I have never been the most attractive person,

    not do I aspire to be. My personality shines far brighter than my appearance and I believe in never judging others on what I see before my eyes. It is far better to know a person from the inside and see their inner beauty than to be shallow and view only the outer beauty.

    I will never understand

    why people are so hung up on outer appearances. A persons true beauty is NOT in how they look, what they wear, or what they own. A truly beautiful person is gentle, kind, caring, faithful and compassionate. They treat you good with their whole heart. They love you for who you...

    Beauty lies in the eye,

    they say, and therefore inner beauty too. Everybody has got a different idea of what inner beauty is. For me a person who is beautiful in the inside is someone who follow their own path, respects others following different ones, helps them not to get off the way, does not judge...

    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...

    Inner beauty eminates in a way

    When I was in high school there was a girl

    Beauty Is Not In The Face Or In The Body, It Is A Light In A Heart.

    Inner beauty is such a beautiful thing,

    and I honestly feel like it takes pretty strong and humble people to harness it. Inner beauty is something that in my opinion not to many people in society have, it's all about the external experience, and no I'm not discrediting that outer beauty isn't as important, but how can...

    It seems like a guy becomes a lot more

    attractive to me when I truly get to know him and enjoy his personality. A guy being attractive isn't the only thing I look for. If a guy is hot but has a terrible personality then he just becomes another guy to me.

    God played a cruel trick on the human race.

    He made it so that everyone else can see your beauty except for yourself. Everyone goes through life without knowing what they truly look like. Mirrors reverse images and pictures manipulate the image. Only human eyes tell the truth.

    Just A Thought.

    im starting to notice a trend where guys like to use girls for there own pleasure. there's more to a girl than just sex. so guys, stop using them like that, and show some respect. I've never been the type to complain often, but I just thought ide put that out there.

    No matter how much we say

    that inner beauty is so important. We still judge people because of their looks. Because nobody falls in love with personality at first sight. & that's really sad. It should be like that.
