True beauty is more than skin deep, ladies

The world lost beauty when sexy introduced itself. To be called beautiful was an honor, a privilege. Now to be called beautiful isn’t enough. It is almost like beauty has lost its meaning, value and importance. To be called sexy, bad and things like that means you are doing something right.

Right? I don’t even know anymore because the majority of the women I see who have been called sexy reveal what “sexy” leads to.

I’ve seen some beautiful girls on this campus, and some sexy girls, and it is when the beautiful girls do what they think is necessary to be called sexy that they lose their beauty.

What is even considered beautiful today? My mom always told me to look for a girl who has a good head of hair. It is tough finding that girl when all I see is bad weaves.

I’m not saying that if you wear a weave you are not beautiful. I like natural hair; but, if you wear one the least you can do is get it put in properly.

Anyway, the world views beauty as what you wear and how you are shaped.

Dictionary.com says beauty is “the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), a meaningful design or pattern, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest).” So it says that beauty is sometimes determined by “shape and color,” similar to how we want a thick, yellow girl.

It also says “a meaningful design or pattern,” just like we determine beauty by what brand of clothes you wear.
What I’m trying to say is that you should not let the world tell you whether or not you are beautiful, but rather know that you are.

I was discussing this with a friend who struggled with self-esteem issues because she is “too dark and skinny.”

It bothered me. I always thought she was beautiful because she was strong, a good person and I was attracted to her, which brings me to my next point.

I don’t believe there are ugly people in this world, just people you are not attracted to.

This is why we sometimes see couples and are confused as to why anyone will be with that person; it’s because they were not meant for you.

Moreover, stop hiding in this shell of low self-esteem and calling yourself ugly, fat or other lies that come to mind.

Think of how many of these “sexy” women have good relationships.

You know you’re beautiful, right? Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

God doesn’t make mistakes or ugly things. You are precious in His eyes as well as mine. Happy Women’s Appreciation Month. Without you we would be nowhere.
