Our own selves should be our first source of self-pride and confidence. So if you are not feeling your best, we listed some of our favourite quotes to help remind you that before you look at others to see your own beauty, you should allow yourself that privilege first.
If you're a huge Princess Diaries fan, then you would be very much familiar with this line. There are people who are particularly fond of putting others down, and it may be the very reason why you're feeling the way you feel right now. But always remember that allowing them to hurt you and say things about you is always up to your own faith in yourself. As long as you know who you truly are, your beauty, both from the outside and within, will shine through despite what others say.
This analogy perfectly illustrates that attractiveness is one thing, but it is nothing without character. How you deal with yours and other people's dark and sad moments truly reveal your inner beauty. It shows your heart, soul, and true nature, which is so much more important than a beautiful face paired with a cold heart.
Have you ever had people tell you that you are beautiful, kind, or simply amazing, but you felt like you need to dismiss it because you don't feel that way? Then keep re-reading this quote and put it to heart. Do know that it's not boastful or greedy to accept that there are some things about ourselves that are worth calling "beautiful". If they can see it, then maybe we should start appreciating ourselves more too.
Putting a new meaning to the classic quote "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", this reminds us that before we turn to others to see who are, we must be willing to see ourselves in the best possible way. It is not to dismiss our faults and flaws, but it is to embrace our own identity and love who we are entirely.
