It’s more than that meets the Eye

Beauty of a person is not only seen by their physical attributes but also through that person's attitude towards life.

Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” - Confucius

There is a girl walking on the street. She wears short skirt, high heel shoes, and sleeveless shirt. Her hair sways as she moves. Her face was like you have seen a superstar in real life. As she walks by, many people seem to stare at her. She enters a popular bar and meets up with her friends to have a party.

Another girl who is sits on the bench on one waiting shed with a group of people. She wears jeans, rubber shoes, and a printed shirt that might have been an organization shirt. She doesn’t wear any make-up and only a pair of eyeglasses covers up her bright shiny eyes. Her face is one of the ordinary. She talks with the people who are sitting with her in the waiting shed.

Who would you choose? The girl walking who wears short skirt, high heels shoes and sleeveless shirt or the girl who sits on the bench who wears jeans, rubber shoes, a printed shirt and a pair of eyeglasses.

Maybe one of you might choose the girl walking on the street wearing short skirt because you had already noticed that she’s one of a kind and obviously beautiful. And also maybe one of you might choose the girl who sits on a bench wearing jeans because you might be thinking that this girl is a member of an organization. Whether you choose the girl who is walking or the girl who sits on the bench, well, it’s only a matter of choice, right?

Some guys might choose their girlfriends because of their physical attributes. While some other guys might also choose their girlfriends because of their attitudes. I’m not saying that is brain is better than beauty. All I have wanted to say, that’s a matter of choice that a guy chooses their girlfriends like that.

To some people, beauty of a person can be viewed by his/her physical attributes. If you’re a person who loves beautiful/handsome person, then if you had seen a handsome guy or beautiful girl like a superstar in person while you are inside a mall, your jaw might have dropped. Or either you are a person who doesn’t like much expectation of a pretty faces and you consider just simple ones.

Some people might also say that beauty can be viewed inside of a person. As you get to know the person you have not really known well, you can see and notice if he/she has a good heart or just one of those people making friends for social relations or other purposes that are not so good.

As the saying goes, what is beauty if your brain is empty? And what is brain if your face is damaged? It doesn’t matter whether you are more on the beauty attributes of a person or more on the attitude of the person. The importance is, you are choosing what you want, according to your taste and only saying your opinion about it, as long as you are not destroying one’s life. And you are doing things for the betterment of your life and also helping other people to do well unto others. But obviously, you are very fortunate if you have both beauty and brains for helping other people in your own little way, not only the people around you, but also people around the globe.

We need to have a balanced life. A person who chooses a beautiful partner should also know what he/she is getting into; it cuts both ways. Thanks Regine for the share - siva
