“Beauty is not flawless; it shines even through your flaws.”
So often, we associate beauty with perfection. It’s about having that perfect Instagram filter to make your skin appear sun-kissed and smooth, about maintaining a certain body shape that fills out a dress to what society wants, about creating a persona that is humanly impossible. Though there are many ways to create these fake personas in this day and age, beauty can still be so real. As the quote reads, true beauty is able to shine through the flaws. It really allows us to know that beauty is something that can be attained (yes, even if you are not a supermodel!) It has to do with how you deal with your imperfections. Imperfections are completely normal, and those who never learn to deal with them don’t shine in the way that beauty should.
How should beauty shine then? It should shine when you’re doing something you love, when you’re hanging out with your friends, even when you eat your favorite dessert! It’s the natural glow that anyone can have when they smile. Cheesy, I know. But there’s a difference between that natural smile and the smile of someone masking their interior personality with their exterior beauty.
