Inner beauty radiates when you are happy and spreads positive values to those around you
Comfortable being yourself will help exude your inner beauty
True beauty is not just a matter of physicality, because true physical beauty will fade over time. There is something more lasting than, So What is inner beauty. Everyone, both women and men of course have it, but not all of them can exude beauty from within. To be able to achieve this, understand its meaning so that your inner beauty will shine even more.
Why inner beauty is matter than outer beauty
A research journal entitled inner beauty – The Friendship-Hypothesis by DR Lisa Schmalzried, reveals several theories from philosophers about what inner beauty is. Plato proposed that inner beauty defines a beautiful person because of their good morals. Meanwhile, for other philosophers like Reid or Gaut, inner beauty is not only about moral goodness but also closely related to one’s intelligence, sense of humor, and optimism. Furthermore, Schmalzried in his journal mentions several other variables to define inner beauty. Indeed, inner beauty is closely related to the morals that a person does, but the intention behind it also determines inner beauty itself. Immanuel Kant, a German philosopher, argues that if someone has good morals just because he wants to look beautiful and doesn’t sincerely do it, then that person is not someone who has inner beauty. A more modern approach often associates inner beauty with the expression “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” which means beauty, including inner beauty, is subjective, because what one person considers beautiful does not necessarily mean that other people also think of it. This can be because the variables to measure beauty from within are very broad. So naturally, these philosophers have different opinions regarding the definition of a person’s inner beauty. If you look at the current era, the conclusions in the journal can be a reference to determine what inner beauty is. Today’s society considers inner beauty to be neutral from morals and prioritizes intelligence and a positive self-image. What are the real forms of intelligence and a positive self-image? If you think these two things determine a person’s inner beauty, then there are several characteristics and ways you can radiate inner beauty in your daily life.
Do this to show off your inner beauty
1. Know yourself
Focus on the qualities in yourself. It can help you find meaning about life’s joy and satisfaction. Someone who is always happy can spread positive values to their environment too. Find out what triggers your desires, your true desires. Open yourself to feel love and compassion from others for a more meaningful life. It is not an easy thing to explore one’s own qualities. If you’re still confused, it’s okay to seek inspiration from people you admire or respect. Try to remember the people whose personalities were the most memorable no matter what they looked like. Write down what traits and behaviors they have become amazing people. You can try to practice it in your daily life as long as it doesn’t conflict with your values and character.
2. Think positively about your personality rather than thinking about your physical appearance
Positive thinking has many health benefits. To always think positively, try the following:
Write down three things you like about yourself that have nothing to do with your physical appearance. Positive thinking changes the way the nerves in your brain work, which can help you see yourself in a different way.
Practice looking at yourself in the mirror, smiling frequently, and praising your personal qualities. Acknowledge all parts of yourself, such as acknowledging that you are friendly, kind, smiling, empathetic, and so on.
Get used to standing straight, forming good posture on the body can project confidence. Self-confidence can make other people feel respectful of you and will help make it easier for you to love yourself.
3. Be yourself
Many people who are recognized as having inner beauty are actually far from perfect. One thing that really stands out for them is that they feel good about being themselves and try to live their best every day. So from now on, focus on the future, not the past. Enrich yourself with new experiences and be more flexible. Challenge yourself so that you can grow into a better human being. Embrace every emotion you feel in the process. These are the plagues that will make you authentic.
