You are beautiful.
Even though I’ve never seen you, it feels good to hear it, right? You might know it, or perhaps you don’t even think about it.
I’m actually being genuine when I tell you this. How, when I don’t know how you look?
Literally everyone is beautiful, in their own way, and people who care about you see your beauty.
There is such a thing as universal beauty – something everyone thinks is simply beautiful when they see it.
It’s what we see in the media that shows us the current universal beauty. You know that different things were considered beautiful throughout history?
I don’t want to bore you with the details, you can check out what was considered universal beauty throughout the existence of humanity.
I want to focus on something you can’t find out so simply.
Have you ever noticed how people become more beautiful when you care about them? Do you know how they even become more beautiful as you spend more time with them and get to know them?
Universal beauty is what looks beautiful when you simply look at it. It’s the kind of beauty everyone will agree on… but it doesn’t mean it’s attractive.
For one thing, we all have different tastes and it defines what kind of beauty is attractive to us.
Another thing is that, when we notice the beauty inside the person, we actually start seeing it on the outside too.
Ever seen a movie star without her makeup? Trust me, when she wakes up in the morning, she doesn’t look the way you see her on TV.
Yes, some people are so lucky that they look beautiful to everyone even when they’ve just woken up… but you know what?
To the person who loves you, you’re actually beautiful when you look a mess.
When you’re having a bad hair day, wearing no makeup, and in dirty sweatpants, you’re not beautiful to everyone.
But you are even more beautiful to the person who loves you.
They don’t see what people who don’t care about you see.
When we look at a person we don’t know, we see what’s on the outside… but even then, we don’t see just that.
We see what we think about them, what their vibe is, what we assume things about them, based on what we think we know.
All this influences whether we rate them as beautiful or not.
When we get to know them, the way we see them changes. They look different to us than to those who know nothing about them.
And when we start caring about them, they start looking more beautiful.
It doesn’t matter what can actually be seen, because eyes are not cameras. Eyes are the windows to the soul, remember?
A human eye doesn’t see what a camera sees, it sees what the human sees… and humans can’t be entirely objective.
That’s why there is no actual universal beauty. It’s just the beauty that looks good when we see it impersonally.
That’s why a man who loves you says you’re beautiful and really means it.
Every person in the world knows how important it is for women to be called beautiful…
They even know how important it is to feel beautiful and how it affects actual beauty.
What they often don’t know is that everyone looks at our beauty differently and sees something different.
All we can agree on is what can be considered beautiful to everyone, but that’s not actual beauty.
Actual beauty is in the eye of the person looking at you with love.
I know people have already told you that it doesn’t matter how you look on the outside, but they haven’t really explained it.
It does matter, but only to those who haven’t had the chance to see anything else. As they get to know you, the way they see you changes.
What a person thinks about you creates the image of you in their head.
They can’t see you without what they see in their head influencing what’s really there.
Your beauty is not in what you see in the mirror – whether you think you’re beautiful or not. The person who looks at you is a human being, not a mirror.
No human being can see things that objectively, so there’s no way we can really see what the mirror is showing.
Men may tell you that you’re beautiful even when they don’t mean it. A man who makes you feel beautiful really means it.
He’ll make you see what he sees, not what a camera sees… or what you see. After all, you’re also human and can’t be as objective as the camera or a mirror showing you your image.
Mirrors can’t show you what people see.
And every person sees you differently, especially you who don’t really see yourself in any other way except in your reflection or a snapshot.
A man who makes you feel beautiful will make you realize that you’re not just your body and that’s not all that people see.
They see the way you move when you talk, the way your eyes glow when you talk about something you’re passionate about…
These are things you don’t see in yourself, and others do. But they see even more.
When they look at you, they see the way they feel about you.
If a man truly loves you, you can be sure that he thinks that you’re beautiful.
When he tells you that, after some time, you’ll even be able to see it yourself.
You’ll see yourself the way he sees you because you’ll love yourself.
If you don’t love yourself, no amount of makeup or plastic surgery will really change how you view yourself.
Yes, we all would love to have universal beauty. We all want to be satisfied with the first selfie we take… and none of us are.
A few lucky ones were given the beauty we dream of, but do you know who the truly lucky ones are?
The ones who are able to see it without it being so obvious and realize others see more than what’s on the surface.
You’re probably not a supermodel, and you don’t need to be.
If you find a man who sees you that way, you’ll feel that way, and that’s the man you should wait for.
Until you find the person who truly loves you, try to be that person. Learn to see yourself differently, and others will too.
Don’t settle for words and images because they can’t really explain things so well.
Find love – and self-love – because it makes you feel things that are hard to put in words or take a picture of.
Somehow, even though we can’t see or explain it, love finds a way to make us see and understand.
It makes us realize we’re beautiful in both our happy and sad, glammed up and pajamaed out moments – and a good man will realize that too!
