5 Quotes That Will Make You Realise Your Own Beauty

We've heard people say that everyone is beautiful in their own way. However, there are moments when we personally feel like we are not at par with everyone else, whether it be our physical beauty or our own internal feelings and inhibitions. We've all had days when we think and feel that we are not beautiful or kind or brave enough. But trust us when we say that it doesn't mean that we should stick to having that outlook.

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. 


"No one can make you inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt

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.

"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." - Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

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. 

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." - Marilyn Monroe

We are usually so fixated on our flaws that we overlook the things that make us beautiful. So take note that having imperfections is normal. It makes us more exciting and unique and that we should celebrate it and see that beyond it, we have something much more beautiful to offer to the world.

"Butterflies can't see their wings. They can't see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well." - Naya Rivera

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.

"People often say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing you are the beholder." - Salma Hayek

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.
