Is appearance important?

Have you ever assessed the quality of a website through its appearance or interface? Have you ever judged a book on the basis of its cover and a few lines of recommendation? Have you ever liked a girl just after seeing her?

Are you someone who cares about appearance? Do you often feel like you have nothing to wear before an important event? And often feel like I need to buy more, more clothes?

To be obsessed with appearance and to think that appearance determines happiness is a wrong thinking. It will cause you to become isolated, irritable, distrustful, and countless other negative things.

If now the woman of your life is behind that curtain and you have a choice. Would you choose the mind first, personality after, and appearance last? No, no one does. Obviously, when choosing women, we will pay attention to the appearance first and then the rest. Many people even want their wives to be a bit dull, even just being beautiful and easy to talk about is enough.

When this general unseen desire is put in place, the "off-stream" individuals will feel more or less TON of DAM, their brains will return a message with content like "I haven't turned yet. . " These messages come from a lack of confidence in their appearance compared to those around them.

We live in a society where human appearance comes first - where the majority think we are liked depends on attractiveness. Diet culture, the beauty industry, the media - all convey the message that being beautiful means perfect.

However, is beauty still true? In modern times, it's easy to have just a few clicks or swipes to have stunning pictures to post on social media. These pictures are carefully selected and edited to the point that "fake as real", then bring hundreds, thousands of likes and praise can also be "fake as real". But deep down, you know the truth. You cannot ignore. And the universe doesn't allow you to do that either.

For imperfect people, the ads and magazine covers hit psychology. They continually remind you of how imperfect you are. They frankly point out your flaws in order to sell you a lot of products.

Acknowledgment is the key to getting ahead in life.

So instead of criticizing your appearance, instead of blaming yourself and admitting it, accepting it, your life will become much more comfortable. Also, that's when you discover that you have so many other things to focus on instead of what you don't have.
