As cliche as it may sound, internal beauty will always out weight external, and it tends to be more permanent. You may be able to bait someone into your life with your beautiful hair, skin, and nails, but the key to having a great relationship with others and yourself starts from the inside.
1. Accept Yourself
Has someone ever said to you that you gotta love you first before anyone else can? This is so true. What makes you think if you don’t love you someone else should. Through growth, experiences, and maturity you will learn that being yourself is the beauty of being human. Everyone is different for a reason. We all have envied someone’s personality and life at one point, but in order to love yourself you must learn to appreciate what you bless the world with.
2. Be Kind
It’s a simple task, but some don’t realize how often they pass up the opportunity to do it. Being kind not only makes other view you in a beautiful light, you often feel better about yourself as well. Doing some good for the world never hurt anyone, plus ugly behavior doesn’t look very attractive.
Learning to be gracious can be easier for some than others. This of us who tend to be on the pessimistic side can often overlook what life has offered us. Gratitude is an easy way to change your overall perspective on what your life consists of. Try writing down 2-3 things a day that you are happy and grateful for. It allows you a moment to reflect on your life, day, and recent events, as well as give you a chance to realize life may really not be so bad. Who knows that beautiful smile of yours may even come out!
4. Express Yourself
There is something about a person who feels comfortable enough to communicate their true feelings and thoughts. When you love and care about someone do you tell them? When you are concerned do you show it? Many of us are guarded around our true internal thoughts and emotions, as we don’t want to appear vulnerable or weak for them. You may be surprised as to how receptive others will be to your true feelings. Transparency is key to seeing internal beauty.
5. Love Yourself
It is important that your self worth and love start with you! We al find reason why we are unhappy with ourselves and our lives, but we have to start finding time to offset these negative mental notes we are constantly taking about ourselves with something positive. Find something that you actually like about you and focus on it for a change. The more you love you, the more you will begin to surround yourself with people you love you. When you love yourself your standards of company change, and you will find that people that you spend your time with will evolve.
