Beauty isn’t about having a pretty face. It’s about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart, and a pretty soul.
Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. What is aesthetically pleasing varies from person to person, culture to culture, and has changed throughout the decades and centuries. What one considers to be physically attractive in a woman is certainly pleasing to the eye, and really, who doesn’t appreciate what they consider to be aesthetic beauty? However, physical beauty in human beings is, as we all know, temporary and fleeting. It can be gone in the blink of an eye, and definitely alters with age. Beyond that, physical beauty can only get a person so far. There is not one of us who has not met a beautiful woman or good looking man who have then lost their appeal the longer we got to know them.
We know that this occurs because physical beauty cannot trump the beauty of someone’s heart and soul for very long. If the core of a human being is not beautiful, their external beauty becomes a non-factor in terms of attraction in no time flat. Conversely, we have all experienced that incredible phenomenon of being drawn to someone simply because we are electrified by their personality or character. This is what we call chemistry between two human beings. Chemistry can’t be bought, can’t be applied with make-up, and definitely doesn’t come simply by the way we bat our eyelashes. It is a product of two souls meeting which are made for each other.
In the end, physical beauty has very little bearing on how we relate to other people long term. A pretty face is a wonderful characteristic to have. It may attract another person initially but it takes a lot more than that to keep someone interested enough to delve into who we are as people, and to make someone want to stay by our side. ~Gia
