How many of us have been emotionally affected by others who have either made us feel ugly or small by pointing out our flaws or lowered our self-esteem? Often, it affects us because what they say confirms what we tell ourselves. They deemed something about us as not ‘attractive’ or ‘good enough’, something we don’t like about ourselves. A lot of this idea is down to if WE believe what they tell us. Or alternatively, whether we learn to ignore negative comments and keep telling ourselves ‘we are good enough’ and ‘we are attractive’. It can make us feel completely different about ourselves and our lives. Everything is about perception, believe you are ugly and you will be. Believe you are attractive and again…you will be! In this post, we share a video and discuss the importance of perception and improving the way we talk to ourselves. Is beauty in the eye of the beholder? Read on and find out.
In this video, a photographer sets about showing people that they are beautiful and just watch how people react! It really does make you think… what is beauty anyway. What if the voice of the woman was your own internal monologue. Whenever someone tried to bring you down, your life could be a totally different experience. Being able to see the good in yourself will improve your life and mental health.
Enjoy the video and remember you are just great the way you are!
You are beautiful, there is only one of you. Your look, your personality, your experiences. You are brilliant in every way.

Is Beauty In The Eye Of The Beholder
Yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder but you also need to be conscious of telling yourself you are beautiful too. There is always something you can be proud of yourself for. In truth, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks of the way you look or who you are, what matters is your self-perception.
You don’t need to be perfect, you just need to be aware of your inner beauty as much as your external looks as beauty have many forms. I recommend writing down 10 positive things about yourself on a piece of paper. Keep this with you at all times. So next time you are being hard on yourself stop! Look at the piece of paper and remind yourself of your beauty!
