So instead of rambling (like I always do, let’s get into it!)
Todays Topic issss….
Personality matters far more than beauty
Now let’s hear what Emma thinks!
Well, when I get a transfer or visit some new place. I always try to make myself look good physically. I work so hard on my looks but even after trying a lot, I still get the same response which is nothing unusual. That is when I think that personality matters so much more than your appearance. It is only the mentality that matters to the others that you talk to.
You might look great today. You might look as if you are sweet and innocent today but if tomorrow, you go to a person and talk to him or her like a bitch then your reputation will change from that moment onwards. People will think of you as rude, arrogant, egotistical and so many more things. On the other hand, I might not look as good today, but if I complement at least three people, their opinion will change about me.
Like with your teachers at school. Only when you do something great, they will get impressed. Beauty is not skin deep it soul deep. Beauty comes only from your soul.
Today, I know what my personality refers to and it is only because I look at myself as what I have become and not how I look. Only when you look at your own personality can you define yourself.
This is what I think –
Okay so I know that it sounds pretty harsh, but I honestly think that personality and looks matter quite equally…at the beginning.
I mean, I know it’s weird but people CHOOSE who they wanna talk to and pursue based on LOOKS and looks alone. And I think that’s only because we have nothing else to go off of based on first impressions. I mean, it’s sad but it’s true and I’m not gonna sugar coat it.
But it is your PERSONALITY that makes people wanna stay. If you’re visually appealing but you can’t hold down conversation then it’s not gonna work. Looks and personality go hand and hand together in order to produce the best of relationships – both romantic or not. I mean, you’re not gonna go out with a dickhead right? No, Exactly! – you’re not. No matter how hot they are, if you can’t get past the personality barrier, then it’s never gonna last. Sure you could try to make it work but you can never fight the inevitable.
I love getting to know people – learning all of their traits and habits, noticing the little things they do make it that little bit better and it becomes AMAZING if you like their personality! I mean, finding somebody who fits into both categories is super rare, but that’s what makes the possibility of it lasting even higher.
I’m not too sure if I’m making sense right now so if I’m not then please ask me to elaborate down below.
However, sometimes I feel like Personality takes a precedence over looks because of the sheer fact that it is what makes you stay. It makes you wanna stick around for the journey and enjoy more and more each day. And yes it sounds romantic but it can be used in any sort of relationship and it’s such an important factor that I cannot stress enough.
At the end of the day, the two traits go hand in hand and I’m not saying that you have to go and look a certain way to make friends or get a boyfriend or girlfriend because everyone has a preference and different ways of acting. Be yourself and meet people who like you for you. I know I say this a lot but those really are the best type of people!
