Beauty is defined as “a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or for, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight” or “a beautiful woman”.
Beauty has always been a word geared towards women and society. But, it truly can be appreciated in any form at all. It is important that we recognize the beauty in our own life such as within different cultures, behaviors, societies, Etc. Society constantly suggests as humans we have to be beautiful to be accepted as who we are. For example, some people may think of beauty as physical features. Some people will go to extreme extents to feel beautiful and get cosmetic surgery to enhance their physical features. We see the people we define as beautiful and tend to gravitate towards who they are, wishing we could be more like them. But some romanticize the beauty of life and nature. They may think of beauty as a gorgeous sunset at the end of the day, or seeing the beautiful blue oceans. Or even just little things, like seeing someone you really connect with after a long time or making someone else smile.
Not everyone thinks of beauty in the same ways, but most everyone can agree that they have had some sort of beautiful moment or experience within their lifetime. In a society full of harsh judgmental people, the ideal of inner-beauty is being tarnished by the idea that it is centered around physical features entirely.
My questions for you are: What is beauty? What is inner-beauty What are your thoughts on cosmetic surgeries (plastic surgery)? Do you think society emphasizes the idea of beauty? What do you find beauty in?
