Beauty?

9 Dec

Prompt: Beautifully different. Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different – you’ll find they’re what make you beautiful.

Bloody, bloody, bloody, bloody!

I don’t believe in it.

I think that snowflakes and flowers can be beautifully different. Even deformed fruit is pretty cool.

People? People are too judgmental to be beautifully different. And self consciousness gets in the way.

I think we can spend too much time looking for “beauty” and “perfection” in other people (never mind ourselves) rather than trying to accept them for who they are.

“Who are you?” would be a better prompt than “what makes you beautiful?” Because beauty is all subjective, isn’t it.
And it’s not something I aspire to.

As I said, I just don’t believe in it.
