It never fails to surprise and disappoint me at how overvalued physical beauty remains to be. I am of the unshakeable opinion that intellect, integrity, and compassion are FAR more valuable than an attractive face. I won't sit here and pretend that I am not considered physically attractive to some, (everyone is attractive to someone), but truthfully, it holds SO LITTLE weight to my mind. I'd much rather be told that I am intelligent, that I have a good heart, or that I am appreciated as a person. These are statements of value, these are true compliments.
But Natasha, why do you post photos of yourself then?
Simply, because it is expected of me. Because sharing aspects of my life is an important lesson in business 101, and because sometimes, I simply enjoy the image. My appearance, however, is a minuscule element of my overall being.
In the end, it isn't difficult for a physically attractive person to simply BE attractive, it requires next to no effort, it means nothing. But to continue to be kind, loving, compassionate, patient, understanding, and soft-hearted in a world meant to turn you to stone? Well.. that means everything.
