Being you is being beautiful.
How would you describe someone as beautiful? Read that sentence again. YOU.
Oxford dictionary describes it as pleasing the senses or mind aesthetically. Another says something of very high standard. Well no dictionary’s description matters in this world because Presto! We have the world’s most majestic body doing that for us: Society. And we like mere players, get played into society’s hands and take their definition. Accept it. Thinking that its the most ideal one. The right one.
Male : Tall, muscular, fair-skinned, with oh so mesmerizing eyes and silky hair.
Female: Glowing skin, the oh so mesmerizing eyes ( AGAIN.), long straight hair, prominent cheekbones, size zero with long legs.
This is what is the definition isn’t it? And then society says that Oh! If you don’t have any of these features, you are not deemed beautiful. You don’t fall in that category. Do we have any idea that this one definition makes so much difference in the lives of millions in this world? The way that they all are alone? The way they think that they are not even worth living? Does society have any idea what they go through?
Well, I am here to tell society that you don’t tell us what is right and wrong. You are not the ones who tell us the what’s beautiful. Being beautiful, readers is about being yourself. And that is something most of us can’t. It’s very easy, I assure you. And its your mind which tells you its impossible. Being you is the most beautiful form. The fact that you are the way you are, with every person on this Earth. Not being fake, that’s very hard. Because everyday I see people being what they aren’t. Updating pictures, which isn’t them. Trying to be someone they are not. I sometimes feel like asking them, what do you gain by being that way? Don’t you feel the utmost happiness being the way you are? And not letting society define you? And that’s when people say that you are beautiful. Don’t expect that everyone will like your beauty. Because being persona A in front of a person who is type A and being like persona B who is of the same type as B will make you having 2 two personas. Do you really want that? Or do you want to be your real self? And believe me when I say this, when you feel that no one will like your beauty, you are mistaken. Somewhere between those thousands is that person who will admire you. For being your persona.
And aren’t we a part of society? Then we are the ones who can change the definition. And as a added bonus, when you yourself are beautiful, the world becomes beautiful with you.
And there will come a day when you will realize this. Because I finally have. But very few people don’t know. But one day they will. One day, we will change society’s definition.
Because being you is being beautiful.
