What Makes You Beautiful.

Do not judge a book by it’s cover – this is what each and every individual has been taught since their pre primary schooling. Most of them just learnt it, some of them know the meaning of it but only a few of them have actually apprehended it. The metaphor presupposes that just by external appearance one cannot judge qualities of someone. Or can they? We’ll test this with an example—- Bodybuilders are believed to be someone with raw strength, scary, massive and stuff. So a bodybuilder got into a fight with just a common man like me. Shockingly the man won! It turned out to be, his courage to fight was not even 1% of his humongous body.

I don’t blame anybody, it’s human behaviour to check out someone. Instead, we judge people who we don’t even know, pass comments and laugh at them for reasons unknown hence demotivating them. If someone is hefty we say he is fat. If thin, he\’s too skinny. If dark, I can only see his teeth. If fair, he suffered from Vitiligo . If tall, he’s a Lamp post. If short, I can fit him in a bag. These are some common insults which one has to hear for being the way they are. These people who call you names don\’t know what beauty actually is. They are those illiterate, immature minds who have not been taught ” How to respect beings” . These are what degrade ones beauty.

Physical traits matter, a lot actually, they help build our impression, and in some ways or the other they even boost our self esteem, but it is the act of judgement and body shaming that gives people’s personality a back log. Your optimism towards life, your respect for beings, your gentle behaviour, that forgiving attitude, your revolutionary thoughts and your friendly nature is what that defines you.one is hefty we say he is fat.

P.S: Don’t judge!

  1. The title is the title of one of my favorite songs. “what makes you beautiful” and frankly I wanted to see how one develops this idea. I am glad I opened the article.
    This is a serious topic. People are often judged for temporary external looks rather than permanent inner qualities. These days “body shaming is a fashion.
