saw this quote,and couldn't stop myself from sharing it here.
the first few years of our lives are spent playing with the toys, the fake and the unrealistic ones. we are so used to looking for the beauty that we have no place for the average and even normal things in our lives.
living in society like ours, its more like a everyday thing to hear- oh she is so fair-so beautiful.
or oh he is so fat..so ugly!
i mean what the hell!
but yes this is how we people think these days, or we always did- but are bold to say it out aloud now. this is how we are asked to live our lives and we better do it this way, else its not gonna be any easier, ever.
since when the skin or body type became the measure of one's beauty.
and its not bound to these, they have several parameters to define this beauty-thing.
there was a time, when in schools we were told, beauty is what's beneath your body- how your soul is, the way your heart think, the way you listen to it.
but now, you call a baby precious, and when they have grown old, you tell them- oh this and that is wrong with you.
why can't we always remember that everyone is precious, everyone is perfect in their own discreet way.
i don't believe in it, any of this. for me i have my own mantra :)
i am beautiful, i am happy, i am kind, i am truthful,i am a lot more than what you see, a lot more than what you feel, a lot more than what you hear.but no matter what it is,or if you like it or not- i am glad to be me.
