Good looks are good for you?

Everybody spends time looking in the mirror thinking that their body is not perfect, we naturally see ourselves as less than  perfect. In today’s world we are not judged only by our inner beauty or by the things we say and do so much. First impressions are based on our looks.  If you were lucky enough to be born with natural good looks then you will have an advantage in life. You will be more popular and have a easier time making friends and be part of the cool group of people.

If you investigate this a little  more you will see that although there is an advantage to natural good looks it’s not the big advantage that you imagine. There are issues with being good looking that others without such “first impression appeal” don’t have.  I find this to be the case with good looking woman as in our world today they are targets for men who can be dominating and forceful.

For example if you compare two woman, one whom is very good looking and another who has normal looks. Of course the difference can be as  subtle as the way they dress or the level of personal grooming. The point is that the good looking woman will be the target of more attention that the normal looking girl. So how does that attention affect the life of this woman compared to the other?  Is that attention a positive influence of her life?

The attention starts at an early age. when girls reach their teen years they will notice the glaring eyes of men who are naturally attracted to their looks. This can create different reactions depending on the character and confidence of the young girls. In some it will create fear and anxiety, which at an early age can stay with them throughout their lives.  Young minds need to be supported and any fears need to be minimized as they grow to learn to build their confidence and  maturity.

Of course with the normal looking girl the chances of the attention being a negative influence are reduced and she will have a higher chance of developing to maturity without issues associated with the glaring eyes.

This also continues as they grow older and start to interact with the opposite sex.  In their teenage years they will be the target of dominating young immature men who will approach them. This can be difficult again for the not so confident and socially inexperienced girls as they may not have  the ability to fend off   unwanted advances.  This situation when repeated can cause social and mental issues with girls as they may not always make the right choices and then  have to deal with the memories of their choices. This all happens when they are still developing the social skills towards maturity.

So in conclusion, it’s great to be born with good looks but it should be noted that for some people these looks can have a negative effect on their life as they will have some un wanted attention that they will have to deal with and that attention can cause life long issues.
