To be beautiful means to be yourself.
You don’t need to be accepted by others.
You need to accept yourself.
When you are born a lotus flower, be a beautiful lotus flower, don’t try to be a magnolia flower.
If you crave acceptance and recognition and try to change yourself to fit what other people want you to be, you will suffer all your life.
True happiness and true power lie in understanding yourself, accepting yourself, having confidence in yourself.
     –    Thich Nhat Hanh

It reminds me of the song “The Greatest Love Of All” – the lyrics are posted on my Poems page.  Some of us are fortunate enough to be physically “beautiful”.  Most of us just settle for being “normal” looking.  Our beauty has to come from within.
In the end, it is the greater beauty because it grows stronger and brighter with each passing smile (and day).  Love and accept yourself first (not only).
Then, even a life spent alone is a life spent in love.    —    kmab]
