Beauty is definitely in the eye of the bedlhoer. Each person on this earth has their own mind that is made up of totally different experiences and beauty beliefs, most coming from culture. It’s really hard to get everyones real opinion unless you literally took everyone on the earth sat them down and asked them the question. EXAMPLES:•A Barbie doll figure is the average North American standard of beauty, but if you ask someone of South American, Caribbean or African decent they’d say that a more full figured woman is beautiful. •I think Angelina Jolie is absolutely the most beautiful woman I have ever seen in my life, but by boyfriend thinks she is just ok. Even with-in the same culture you will find different levels of beauty opinions. That’s why you should always strive to be the best you that you can be and that’s only if you want to. Everyone else’s opinions’ are just that…opinions…they don’t matter unless you allow them to matter. All in all, peoples’ opinions don’t matter. Beauty is in your eye and you create it for your world. That’s a lot more fun than waiting to be defined by others.
