I used to reject my body and face. I hated myself. I’d tried to put myself into the stereotypes. I’d spent unfortunate life for a long time. But through people around me, I could see and read their own beauty. I realized that appearance cannot be an important factor to live as a shined person. Even if they have flaws or far away from the standard beauty, they are shining with their own hands, eyes, and body. I fall in love with every aspect (natural wrinkles, smile, soft hands, deep eyes) that each body get beauty and brightness with their own features. Accordingly, it also affects on seeing and understanding myself with such eyes and heart. “What is my own beauty?” and “What is the meaning of the beauty in my own meaning?”
