More than a Pretty Face

Posted on: July 19, 2010

                       
            Are you more than a pretty face? Do you act as if
            beauty doesn’t really matter to you? Do you feel
            ugly and that other kids have advantages that you
            don’t have because you are appearance deprived?
           
            There are two difficulties to this conundrum. First,
            there are the kids who feel that they are missing
            out on life because they are not as pretty as their
            peers. Such kids feel disadvantaged. Some of them
            almost feel disabled by their appearance.
           
            Then there are the kids who are beautiful and seem to
            have it all made. But they feel that other people
            aren’t interested in them for anything but their 
            looks. Regardless of what they have done or will
            do, that isn’t as important as what they look like. 
            So, such kids also feel unappreciated.
           
            Kids who are used to getting positive attention because
            of their looks alone sometimes find it hard to trust
            that others are really interested in more than their
            appearance. Like most of us, they want to be accepted
            for their personal qualities and feelings too.
            They also want their talents to be recognized.
           
            Many pretty girls are just as serious at
            being the best as other not so pretty girls, and
            many times this gets sidetracked by the attention
            they get because of their looks. So, is there a
            solution to this conundrum?
           
            It would seem that both the pretty and the not so
            pretty have a conundrum that can be resolved in the
            same way. Our difficulty as a culture is to place too
            much credence on outside appearance. If only
            we shifted our attention to the development of
            our character and personality, we solve both
            conundrums. But are we ready to do that as
            adolescents? Now that’s a really important
            question….
