When you hear the word beauty what is the first thing that comes into your mind? Maybe others would say a person. A beautiful woman or a man with good qualities as a human being. A good color or complexion, shape, and others characteristics define beauty. But what we should know when we are talking about beauty? Overall, people will literary say that you must be white and sexy to become beautiful. And that's why most of us women try to hide and wear a mask of destruction.
We use different kinds of beauty products to makes our skin lighter. We put on make-up every time we go outside or even at home to makes us feel more beautiful. Others use different kinds of whitening products even it is dangerous. They even go for surgery for enhancement of whatever they want to enhance. They spend a lot of money just to become beautiful. But they don't even know the real meaning of being beautiful.
Social media was a big impact and influence on why most of us women almost want to become perfect in shape and color. The Philippines is one of the top users of whitening products because most Filipino thinks that having white skin is beautiful and more attractive. Filipino men are more attractive to women who have whiter and fair skin even if their color is brown, black, or gray. No offense, but most of them are really into white. They also love women who have nice body shapes (sexy). Guys, admit it or not it's a fact. It is also one of the reasons why some average women like me do not intend to socialize and has lower confidence. You know, it hurts when you found your partner checking and following random women and pretty girls on social media like Facebook and Instagram. It's not my fault if I born this way. I am going to accept what I have and what I am and that makes me one of the true beauty. Beauty is inside me not on the outside.
If you are ugly, fat, and black and someone calls you that way I know it hurts even if it's a fact. It hurts that they only look for the outside and not into the inner beauty we have. It hurts, even more, when it comes from someone you know and used to be with you always. Sometimes it was hard to accept the fact that people will never accept the way we are and only criticize our looks, shapes, and colors. They don't know that their eyes can be deceitful. They don't know that true beauty can never be seen through eyes but can feel by the heart.
