Everyone has different ways of explaining what beauty is. Beauty is a combination of qualities that give pleasure to the mind and spirit.

The reality is that not everyone is perfectly beautiful, as a matter of fact in my opinion, no one is perfect. Everyone has flaws but usually the people who are not as “perfect” on their outer beauty will be singled out or won’t fit in with the people who are more perfect. It may not be intentional but they want to be surrounded by people with great “outer” beauty. I do not agree at all. I think that beauty mostly comes from the inside.
