Do you believe you are a beautiful person?

They always say as the old adage says, "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder." True it is. But all of us have different perceptions about beauty. Once again, I would like to borrow some lines from my Hubpages. "And among the many beautiful people I met, those whose inner beauty shine are more beautiful than the others. Their good traits make [these women] beautiful indeed." - You are Beautiful! Back to the question, I believe I am a beautiful person. I do not easily judge; I mean I always try. I always give chance to people to bring out their potentials, no matter how they physically lack what others perceive beauty as. Yes, I believe I am a beautiful person. I may not even pass as beautiful for others but my mind, I believe makes me one. I do not pretend I know everything because pretensions are bad, it makes you a lesser person. I try to learn to accept my lack all the time, I do not say I know when I really do not know. I ask to learn. I teach when needed. But I accept my limitations. Do you believe you are a beautiful person?

I have been the most wonderful I have ever met. I give and give. I work just to live. But life keeps beating me up as if I was the ugliest person alive. It has not been fair and from accenting, although I try to so very hard nothing ever goes my way. I try even harder against all odd but for some reason I am living a life where I am so unappreciated and no one seems to care. I will continue to pray, although sometimes I tend to loose my faith but for some odd reason no matter how much a paint a blessed and beautiful picture of myslef life just makes me feel very ugly.

oh oh oh This is just how I am feeling right now.I always thought myself was beautiful, but apparently was not to others. I mean I am always trying to tell the truth, I don't have malicious trait, I don't envy people for what they got and achieved, I tried to treat people justly, but I guess it is not enough. People value the outer skin more than anything. People only want friends who will enhance their carrier and social standing. People only need the kind of us when they are in need cause they are sure we will give them no matter how horrible they treated us. So sad...

hello, hardworkinggurl. i feel sad that things do not work the way you wanted them to be. but do not worry, you are not alone, i also suffer from these seemingly bad situations. maybe very different from what you are experiencing, but i share life's pointed shafts. but. there is a but. we can change the way we look at things. and we do that this manifests in our being. we glow. we shine. we look happy. not in a superficial way but in an honest way of being happy. sometime it's only our perception that we are not appreciated. it's borne of the problems we face but as i said, we have to make an effort on how to look at things that come our way. hello, jennyze. it is a sad thought indeed. you do not need to be with people who treats you not fair. you have to be with people who will bring out the best in you. i am glad to know that you are a positive person but please avoid the negative people, it could affect your positive attitude.

yes! i do believe that i am beautiful. We are all created in the likeness of the image of God. Everybody has it's own title of beauty. You become beautiful when you believe you're beautiful. I am beautiful, you are beautiful, you don't have to compare yourself to others to know that you are beautiful or to see who is more. In looking at true beauty, there is actually no more and no less because we are different and all of us are entitled to our own beauty titles. :)

Yes, I believe I am a beautiful person. We are all created beautiful, and we are all have our beauty of our own.But we just see the beauty of each individual in a different way, or different level.A person can be beautiful in physical aspects, character aspect, and if she / he has a good heart, then the person is also beautiful.

i think real beauty is the Heart.. if our heart is pure then i think outward beauty naturally comes with it.. if we want others to behold then it can be through the heart. our outward beauty will fade off but inward beauty will remain forever.

Interesting topic... But the world of BEAUTIFUL is definitely have a deep meaning. A person can look beautiful outside(in her look),but it does not mean that her inner looks beautiful too. Therefore, It is pretty hard to judge a person from outside only.

Yes of course I truly believe that I am really beautiful, however others were told my boyfriend of how did my boyfriend got me? Or how did you fooled that girl to be your girlfriend sounds flattering and makes me laugh. Whereas my boyfriend made me believe that I am really beautiful inside and out. Other than that I know how to carry my confidence.

I believe I am a beautiful person. I might have gained weight after my surgery and lost my to-die-for figure I was known for...I have battled with depression as a result of this because people kept telling me I am fat or nasty comments like "where have you been? eating out every single food in your kitchen?" But one thing I learned is that physical beauty does not change who I really am! I possess an inner strength and inner beauty that far outweighs the physical beauty. Yes, I have gained weight and people are not comfortable seeing me this way but that does not defines who I am. Inner beauty will shine like the noon day sun while physical beauty does fade when you age and after people get to know you and find out you stink inside.

I try to be a beautiful person. I believe in the adage that beauty occurs not just on the outside but the inside too. I take care of animals and try to help other people that need helped. When I was younger society looked at me as beautiful because I was thin and spent lots of time applying makeup every day. Society's standards of beauty were not good for me. In high school I developed an eating disorder. I started chewing diet gum and taking chromium picolinate to speed up my metabolism. I also skipped meals until one day I passed out and fell down the steps at school. This was very scary but I would have still skipped meals back then because I wanted so desperately to be considered beautiful by others. Thankfully I had a good friend who walked downtown with me every day and bought me a lunch after that happened. I usually just got a meat and cheese tray and a drink but she was happy that I was eating so that was good enough for her. I recently was diagnosed with a metabolic disorder and was told that this is the reason I have gained weight and can not lose it. It explains a lot. By society's standards I am pretty but not beautiful because I am a heavier person. My husband thinks I am beautiful and I have changed my definition of beautiful.

funny how society define beauty. shallow indeed. i am glad you were able to overcome that inclination to look down on yourself by continually adhering to the belief that beautiful is equals to skinny. in due time, you will be anorexic or bulimic if you were not able to overcome. society plays a major role about what the young generation defines beauty as. hope you will always be the beautiful person you are today.

I believe I am a beautiful person too. I think being honest is key and loving yourself spreads love to others.

hello, lore2009! yes, loving yourself spreads love to other people. that would surely make you beautiful. dishonesty, on the other hand, brings ugliness.
