What Does It Mean to Be Beautiful?
What Is The Meaning Of The Word Beautiful?
So what does it mean to be beautiful? Well, if you look up the definition of beauty in a dictionary (look below) this is what you will find.
1.Pleasing and impressive qualities of something: the combination of qualities that make something pleasing and impressive to look at, listen to, touch, smell or taste
2.A pleasing personal appearance: personal physical attractiveness, especially regarding the use of cosmetics and other methods of enhancing it
3.Beautiful woman: a beautiful woman or girl.
There are two different types of beauty, physical and spiritual. Physical beauty is pretty petty when you compare it to one's spiritual beauty. The definitions above are entirely word to word from a dictionary.
To be perfectly honest with you the closest to what my opinion of what beautiful is would have to be the first one, my opinion on what makes someone beautiful is based on their qualities and their actions.
Physical Beauty "VS" Spiritual Beauty
A person can be physically beautiful, and still have a very ugly personality. That in return makes them appear to be a rather ugly person. People who are like this, focus way too much of their attention on their outer looks, and neglect to take care of their personalities, and the way they treat others. Their whole reason for existing is to impress people, with their trendy clothes or new hair styles, instead of actually trying to win people over with a friendly smile or a bubbly personality. They believe they can win people over with their stunning looks and self-proclaimed cool personas. I have a little news for them though, this makes them appear very stolid, boring, and unattractive. I mean who wants to spend all day talking to someone who has not one thing to talk about besides how beautiful and wonderful they think they are.
Now let us switch up the situation and take a person who may not be the most gorgeous person on the outside, not to say they are ugly, just saying they are not your typical size zero barbie, cookie cutter, generic version of pretty, but they are absolutely flawless on the inside. People like this are awesome to be around, never dull, very friendly and funny. People who project this kind of beautiful personality begin appearing to others as rather beautiful. They are aware of the fact that while they may not be drop dead gorgeous, their personalities and love for life makes them irresistible to others, they are so much more in tune with themselves.
Our inner spiritual beauty is very important we should never put our physical beauty over this. Look around the world we live in today, young girls dying to be thin, as well as some young men. People spending thousands and thousands of dollars on plastic surgeries that do not even last that long, which is why they have to keep constantly going back for more. We know from a young child that everyone grows older and eventually gets wrinkles and gray hair so why try to stop it. That should be considered our progress for growing old, somewhat like our medal of maturity. If we would all learn to perfect our beauty on the inside as much as we try to perfect the outside, this world would be a lot less stuffy and a lot more loving and accepting.
