Katie Makkai- Pretty
I think this generation has their work cut out for them. We need to figure out how to appreciate aesthetics and physical beauty, while not having it define us. As Katie beautifully points out, when we start allowing our self-worth to be defined by our outward appearance (or teach that to our children, male or female) the positive aspects of beauty completely vanish.
I believe the more we teach our children, and personally embrace the differences beauty in other cultures, we will be able to show how subjective beauty truly is.
Appreciate outward beauty, but don’t define yourself by what is going to be decaying in the ground 100 years from now.
