Focus on the inner beauty

Have you ever wondered why do people evaluate others by their looks? Why do we give more importance and value to a beautiful girl (or boy) than a regular one? Is beauty something that we earned? And who defines what is beautiful and what it is not?

I am not saying that we should not take care of ourselves and of the way we look, on the contrary i think beauty is an important part of what brings us joy and happiness, but I think this beauty concept is way wider than a certain standard to follow.

With TV shows and movies, magazine covers, hair and beauty products’ commercials as well as highly filtered and photoshopped pictures we see on social media, it is now more common than ever to find people (especially women and girls) deeply unsatisfied with the way they look, because guess what? When they wake up in the morning and they see themselves in the mirror, they see a few buttons here and there, they see dark circles and their messy hair that is not exactly like what their eyes are used to see in TV and Instagram.

This develops a strong feeling of unworthiness for some people and can develop into very low self esteem, depression, eating disorders and sometimes suicide.

While beauty is something that brings joy to our lives, focusing too much on superficial beauty makes us feel deeply unhappy and unsatisfied. Your worth in not related to how close to the “standard beauty image” you look like. You are beautiful just the way you are, thanks to your thoughts, your kindness, your empathy, your inner peace. You are more responsable about the things that you can control than on your looks. This is not to say that you shouldn’t take care of your body, but to say that you should consider caring more about your thoughts, feelings and actions.

You are worthy of every good in this life, not because you look like that model or that beauty icon but because of who you are and what you have accomplished in your life whether spirituality, personally, or professionally.

You are beautiful just the way you are. Take care of yourself, focus more on the inner beauty, and just smile 🌝

Much love ❤

Stay blesses, Salaam!
