Many people say that beauty is only skin deep, and it’s really what’s on the inside that counts.
Someone whom is perceived as beautiful from afar may truly be viewed as ugly once his/her personality is understood. Someone who is hateful, vengeful, manipulative, deceitful…no matter how attractive s/he may appear on the outside, will eventually be viewed as hideous. Someone who may not be “supermodel quality” in terms of unrealistic “ideal beauty” may be viewed as absolutely angelic as s/he is kind, sincere, honest, and loving.
I am the kind of person who wears my heart on my sleeve. I have absolutely no poker face and my emotions are all their for the world to see. In times of anger, I may speak ill of someone. Most, if not all, of us do. However, even in anger, I try to base my words in truth, at least the truth as I perceived it. And I am not afraid to admit when I was wrong about a situation. I never break someone down for sport, nor do I speak ill of anything beyond actions. At least I try not to.
I am not trying to stand on a soapbox, nor am I trying to be “holier than thou” I’m better than you because. I just think that in our ever-changing world, with our interconnections becoming more and more virtual and less and less real, it becomes easier and easier to be ugly without having to face the person with whom you are being ugly. This gives some folks more gusto to be ugly in person as well. Then, there are people who have been ugly since before Facebook, MySpace…hell, even the Internet.
If your words were to be shown on your face, would you still be desirable?
