Curls looked much browner in the sun, as if beautifying. Is it beautiful if you are dark inside? Is it beautiful if your eyes stare plain and your mouth has rage? Is it the definition of beauty, when you murder your own happiness by saying that you are sad?
What beauty is this that makes you think endlessly and in the end you have nothing good in your mind? What is this beauty that makes you believe there’s a demon in you? If we could interpret dreams much better, would it be okay? They say beauty is within you.
Then I may say that this dark beauty is getting people’s nerves out of them, because if thoughts and a callous mind are beauty, then definitely, the actions of a terrorist and that of a liar should be considered beauty too.
Your thoughts aren’t beauty, the way you handle them is beauty. Your scar is not beauty, the way you show it and accept it is beauty (like Selena Gomez). Your illness or disorder is not beautiful; what is beautiful is how you take courage and help others (as Anupam Kher does).Your weakness isn’t your beauty, the way you tell me, ‘Yes I’m afraid of heights but I love mountaineering’ is beauty.
It sure is inside you, but it comes through an action by you. That doesn’t mean you have to prove you are beautiful, hell no, that means you have to internally ‘accept’ that unknown beauty. And acceptance is certainly an action.
So when you are told, ‘You are Beautiful’, look at your darkest past or the worst day, accept it was ephemeral, and find some pearls in them, and then say to your mind.
“Yes I’m Beautiful”
