What is beauty?
According to the dictionary apparently you can define it.
Although the catch is there are numerous definitions.
There’s beauty that is the quality in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind.
Everyone is beautiful.
Honestly, this world is full of beautiful people, but have you ever felt like the one exception?
Like everyone around you is beautiful and you’re just stuck there in the awkward middle?
I can say I’ve felt that one too many times.
I’m surrounded by beautiful people that have a beautiful future, and a beautiful significant other.
It makes me think,
Am I beautiful?
I figure I’ve got to be in someone’s eyes, but for the time being I haven’t found a person that will soberly, honestly, and truly look me straight in the eye and say, “you’re beautiful with no let down.”

Beauty is a cliché in the eyes of THIS beholder.
Beauty is the laughter in someone’s eyes
Beauty is the slight smile from the one you love
Beauty is the long talks that no one can ever understand.
Beauty may be appearance to people, but in my eyes, beauty is the strength, the love, and the smile in everyday life.
Being able to enjoy every bit of life and never look back on things they did, didn’t, or should have done.

Is being beautiful being the typical “beauty”?
Having long blonde hair?
Big deep sea blue eyes?
A thin and narrow body?
Having a wealthy lifestyle?
Always having a smile on for the world to see?
Well if it does, I’m pretty sure I’m out of the picture.

I have long black hair.
I have brown, almond shaped eyes.
I have a curvy body.
I make just enough money.
And I try to always have a smile, but sometimes life gets the best of me.
I need to become okay with that.
Although living in the society that we live in today it’s almost not okay to be “different” than the norm.

Growing up where I have I’m surrounded by people who look nothing like me. I never noticed it when I was a kid because just like every other kid I was careless and free. I didn’t have to think about what I looked like, how I did my hair, who my friends were, I was just me.
Well we can’t be a child forever.
I grew up and experienced a thing called life.

I’m not going to lie.
Life grabbed me by my throat,
It ripped me around and dragged me across places that I never could’ve imagined
And worse of all
I felt alone.

I went through life at a catholic school.
I was teased, I got hurt, I was targeted, and I was to the point of ending life.
It was both sexes’ that targeted me.
Ever since then, they have ripped beauty right out of my soul.
But where do you find it?
Where can you find the beauty that you know you have but have lost it somewhere along the way?

Is it in the people you’re friends with?
Is it in the family that is standing by your side?
Or is it in the person you look at every day in the mirror?

Well, my friends are beautiful. I’ve been friends with them for a long time and I don’t think I can find my beauty in them. I wish I could have what they have but yet I am happy with what I have been given.
Yes, my family is standing by my side and backing me up %110, but I can’t find it in them.
I want to be able to look in that mirror and see someone beautiful.
I want to be able to be proud of the person standing in the mirror.
I want to be able to be comfortable with that stranger in the mirror.

Right now, I can’t.
Right now, it feels impossible.
But just like every other challenge I’ve been faced with in my life, I can figure this one out on my own.
I have to because there is no one else.
I have to because this is me.
I have to because if I don’t, life won’t be able to go on.
