Money and Beauty are no object. You can not buy self esteem. –
I am intrigued by the way in which physical appearance can often direct a person’s life; things happen differently for a beautiful than for a plain one. Different yes, but not necessarily better.
So, the next time you see a stunningly beautiful woman … enjoy the view, but do not judge her because she is beautiful.
All that glitters is not beautiful. As with most things in life, there is a downside. Some would even say a dark side to beauty. How some beautiful women view themselves can border on obsessive.
They cherish their looks and play them to the limit, but if they find a blemish, a wrinkle or a flaw, it can throw them into a panic and depression.
Low self esteem is more common in beautiful women than you would expect. Some just do not believe they are attractive. They have a distorted self image and do not believe others who tell them how beautiful they are.
In their mind everyone is a liar and not to be trusted. Some are dependent on the first impression reaction of others to define who they are. So, they start to see themself as someone with no talent, no intellect, no qualities other than her looks.
Then there are the beauties that are truly shy, or to protect themselves from harassment, they withdraw. Unfortunately, they can come across as aloof, stuck up, and arrogant.
If we take the time to get to know her instead of condemn her, we might find out she is really kind, conscientious, caring … and perhaps just a little bit shy. It is almost as if we are subconsciously (for some even consciously) looking for a reason to treat her as less than a person.
Probably the most difficult thing a beautiful woman has to deal with is social rejection. When it comes to members of her own sex she is very often an outcast.
What makes a woman threatening to other women; the number One threat is beauty.
Whether it is true or not, other women perceive the beauty as a threat to steal their man away. They do not trust their spouse, boyfriend or lover in the presence of such a beauty, and simply prefer to reject her instead.
Meanwhile the men think what chance do I have with a beautiful woman like that. All too often men think she has it all, and she must already be taken. What chance would the average man have anyway.
She can have anyone she wants, someone with money, fame and looks. Men are intimidated and prefer to stare from afar rather than approach.
It is not cheap to be a beautiful woman. They spend about one third of their income on maintaining those looks. Women are spending money they do not have on creams, diets, products and cosmetic surgery.
High fashion magazines feel they need to photoshop even the most gorgeous of models. That puts even more pressure on beautiful women to keep up.
Beauty is an asset, just like physical prowess, charisma, brains or emotional intelligence. The key with any gift is in the way that you use it. It does not define you as a person.
Rather, it is an asset used with an understanding of how it is just a small part of who you are. Those that get this will do well; others that do not, not so much.
