Beauty is something the whole world is obsessed with. People usually don’t understand that beauty isn’t perfection and that nothing is perfect. All the norms and rules, principles and molds which have been set up for us are slowly starting to pull us down, deep into the water of impossible goals and we are suffocating. Everyone is trying to look like a model, to be as close to ”perfection” as possible and it is very burdensome. I have written already about perfect teenagers and youth, and said that youth and teenage kids are beautiful just the way they are, with all their flaws, because youth is beautiful. Kids are checking each other out all the time. It’s bloody important what you are wearing, how you’re wearing it, does anyone else has the same thing as you do etc and so do people in general, that never changes. Many are often insecure about their looks and therefore never dare to try anything when it comes to someone they like, or fitting into the society, that passes on to success at work, to every single thing, and they often are not aware of that or simply don’t want to admit it. Looks plays a big role in our lives, and with the understandings of the modern society that is the only measure of beauty and it is unreachable.
That pulls a lot of strings, starting with the style of life we’re living. The cosmetics and textill industry are giving us new products all the time saying how we absolutely can’t live without them. How are you going to wash your make up off if you don’t have 5 different products from two different brands, or how are you going to apply it if you don’t have the base for every single little thing, from powder to mascara. You go into the store and you see over 20 different brands with all kinds of quality and prices. You see 50 different types of products you should buy and when you look into your wallet you know you can’t afford it. Then, you turn youtube tutorials on and realise that you can’t have half of the things they are using because it’s limited edition, it’s professional equipment or you just can’t have it. The main goal of the industry is you wanting to buy more and more products, more frequent and to think that you really can’t go without them. Lately I’ve noticed that a lot of so-called prestigious brands are degrading their quality. Few years ago you would buy a sweather which you can weare 5 years later and today it can’t last a season. Today the key word is more and the trick is short-lasting.
Now enough with the conspierecy theories, the biggest pity that today’s society makes is the ill understandings of beauty. We are all closing our eyes and act uninterested in front of true and important beauty-the one that’s inside. I know it’s a cliche but let’s face it, it is true. When you look at a person you see him/her on the outside, you his/her face, body and clothes, but you don’t see the person. When you think of that person you say his/her name, and what stands under that? It’s not only the face and clothes, it stands the person with his/her personality and attitudes, principles etc.
If someone approaches you and starts flirting the first thing you’ll notice is the looks and then the very apperiance of the person as well. And if you don’t like that person at the frist sight you’ll probably put up a blockade for your future conversations with the person and there will be no possabilities of you two getting together. On the other hand, if you meet a person with no love intentions at first, you just might fall in love with his/her personality and everything that makes that person and as the time goes by you’ll see all the lovely things in the person’s apperiance. We rarely give people opportunity and tend to judge them, and that’s normal. Better be prepared for what might come then go through a disappointment. But, we should see and look for all the beautiful things in every person who sourands us, in every painting which holds the story behind it’s colors, in every song without words and every shy written word. We should see the real beauty of this world and give it a chance, sometimes things don’t go as quick as we wanted or excpected them to go, but the time works for itself, and we should let it do it’s job. We should keep the people who can see us and our beauty in our lives and those who don’t we should let search for some other kind.
