I’ll admit that I care deeply about my apperance. I love makeup and fashion and nothing makes my day more than having my hair done. That being said, I’ve come to realize that exterior beauty isn’t the most important kind. Having an inner beauty makes you lovely and radiant like nothing else possibly can. If you want to work on your inner beauty, these 10 traits will make you even prettier.
Consideration isn’t a trait that many people possess in our modern world. However, it’s still of great importance. Consideration means thinking of other’s feelings and needs. For example, if you have an elderly grandmother who’s unsteady on her feet then offering to allow her to hold your arm as she walks would be considerate.
I think we’d all agree that our world needs a little more kindness. I think one reason we aren’t as kind as we should be is because we’re all busy and wrapped up in our own little worlds. But taking the extra 15 seconds to smile at a stranger, compliment someone or express your appreciation sincerely is so worth it. Not only will you lift the spirits of those you’re kind to but you’ll feel better about yourself as well. If you feel you’re lacking in kindness, challenge yourself to work on this trait.
This’s one I struggle with and I freely admit that! I’m not a pessimist but I am a realist. It’s difficult for me to be positive when my mind clearly sees the reality of a situation. But I’ve also learned that being optimistic gives things a better chance of turning out positively. Sometimes what we think about, we bring about so think positive!
Flexibility is another trait that doesn’t come easily to me, what about you? Being a type A personality, every day has a schedule and a plan. While that’s not a bad thing, holding to it too rigidly sets you up for a meltdown when something throws your day off. If you’re lacking in any of these skills, it doesn’t mean you’ll never be good at them. All of us can stretch and grow as human beings and be better off for it.
Some people are just naturally thoughtful. My husband is one of these people. He’s so kindhearted and always thinking of ways he can bless others. Who can you be thoughtful of today? Even if it’s a small gesture, it’s guaranteed to mean a lot to the recipient.
Empathy is the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and imagine how they might be feeling. Not only that but you extend understanding to them because of whatever situation they’re going through. When someone you know is going through a rough time, it’s the perfect opportunity to reach out to them. Let them know they’re in your thoughts and you care about them. This’s a sure way to make a forever kind of friend.
Do you have a ton of friends? If so, then you’re probably naturally friendly. If your circle is smaller or you don’t feel you have friends in abundance then this may be a trait you want to work on. The best way to get a friend is to be a friend to others. Most people respond very positively to friendly gestures. Before you know it, you’ll have tons of friends.
Not only should you aim to be a supportive person, but you should also surround yourself with people who possess this trait. Being supportive means being there for those that are important you. This can mean anything from simply being an active listener when they need someone to talk to, or driving to their place in the middle of the night to cheer them up and offer your advice to help them work through an issue.
Being open-minded means you take many different things into consideration in a way that is non-judgemental. It's also about having the ability to accept new ideas, allowing yourself to see all aspects of a matter and seeing the bigger picture, as opposed to simply focusing on a rather small and insignificant aspect.
Caring actually goes far beyond displaying kindness and concern for others. It's also about being kind-hearted, attentive, understanding, considerate and an overall warm person. Often caring people are also patient, loving and thoughtful. These are all incredible traits that will not only make you prettier but also a much more beautiful person!
These are 10 traits that can make a person even prettier. Which traits are you challenging yourself to work on? How important is inner beauty to you?
