Beauty is only skin deep you say?

When do you consider someone to be beautiful? How do you measure beauty? I guess it is in the eye of the beholder.

We were taught not to judge a book by its cover, but we all still do sometimes. That is actually very shallow and mean, but people love to judge one another.

I had a teacher at school who once asked our class if we would approach a complete stranger who was extremely overweight and not really nice to look at, or a sexy young woman or man who makes your knees go weak and your heart beat faster. You all know who we chose, someone that is much easier on the eye of course.

My teacher said how are we suppose to get to know someone if we don't even want to approach them. He said for all we know the pretty one is a murderer waiting for their next victim, and the overweight person may be waiting for someone to which he/she can give a million rand to.

That just says, don't judge, beauty is only skin deep.


  1. It's something many people know, but never practice and good for you.. the message should never be ignored, ever.

  2. I like is so true..we never know how people can look at us..
