Yes, beauty is skin deep. When you put more effort into your appearance people who don't normally compliment you, compliment you. The packaging does matter. This is a time in which beauty is somehow better. But you cannot lose who you really are in the inside. The beauty of the Trojan Horse fooled many, but its real power came from within. Even though beauty is skin deep, it is important to not lose who you are.When you think about it some people judge skin."Oh look she's so white and beautiful and that girl over there is hideous she has dark skin oh she must have a bad attitude. " It breaks my heart to see beautiful people feel worthless like they have no purpose in life because someone called them ugly and they believe it's true.The prettiest people do the ugliest things. I guess this is because absolute power corrupts absolutely, and pretty people are automatically powerful. Beauty gives people power over others. This power makes them shallow and empty inside. They start to care only about themselves and attaining more and more power.
I believe that even though the first impression we have of a person is their physical appearance, what is inside matters as much, if not more. It is true that at some point in our lives, we all have judged someone by what they look like on the outside. But that is certainly not all that matters. For example, when you become friends with a person you thought was beautiful, you subconsciously think that because this person is good looking, they must be a good person on the inside as well. However, when you grow closer to that person, that's when you find out who they truly are. Outer beauty may have compelled you to befriend them but when you become 'immune' to that beauty, that's when inner beauty comes in and saves the day. Or in some cases, spoils the day. If the person is not as charming on the inside as they are on the outside, you don't want to be their friend anymore. In my opinion, only a very few people in the world would rather be friends or related to a physically beautiful but, internally not so beautiful person. In conclusion, though outer beauty is important, inner beauty is about a hundred times more beautiful.
In this generation many people only care about how people look, but would rather be brilliant and look "nerdy" or beautiful and stupid. Many of you are one or both of these. What's on the inside is more important than what's on the outside. Think about this before you really answer.
