The Perception of Beauty

This video has been shared around twitter etc for the past week and thought I’d share it as well. This is an interesting and beautiful video showing the difference between our own perception of ourself, compared to how others see us. The differences are seen on paper rather than listening to them, which we do not absorb in. We see the flaws, every little detail where others cannot. We all have our own definition of beauty and we shouldn’t let that overcome us to change every single bit of us. Easy said than done however there is always that first step even if it takes you ages.

What are your thoughts?

    sometimes I wonder about us. I mean it's so obvious that others see us different than we do, even in a good way, and we still always find something that makes us feel bad…
