There is more to Beauty than Meets the Eye
- Posted on: Apr 6 2017
You know that adage “beauty is only skin deep.”? It is such as simple way to express that true beauty lies on the inside. But there is more to this story. We work with men and women every day who are incredible people; they are giving, they are friendly, they are successful. And yet, their personality traits are somewhat hidden behind a mask.
There is substantial evidence that says we feel about as good as we think we look. When we are satisfied with our appearance, we generally feel empowered, capable, and confident. Who doesn’t like the sound of that! When you take in that bit of information, you must also recognize the alternative: that a perceived flaw can degrade overall well-being. Here’s how.
The Self-Esteem Objective
Plenty has been written about the value of healthy self-esteem. We know that beauty, in and of itself, does not create a positive image. At the same time, there is ample data that suggests problems like severe acne or deep lines and wrinkles can directly and negatively affect a person’s sense of self. This is because it is assumed that our outer appearance will be a reflection of how we feel on the inside. Cosmetic flaws do not align with the image most people have of themselves. Therefore, correction of such flaws facilitates a major boost in the area of confidence. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but the beholder is you.
