One of the best kept secrets is the fact that beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself. There is nothing beautiful about someone who is fake or artificial, even if they look gorgeous on the outside. If you want others to see the real you and to recognize the inner beauty that we all have then you have to be yourself and not try to be someone that you are not. As soon as you do this others will start to notice you and see the person that you are instead of the phony that you are trying to be. When you try to be someone that you are not all you will do is make yourself unhappy, and the people who surround you are not true friends. Instead you will always know that these people are only your friends because of who you are pretending to be, and once you stop pretending they will quickly fade into the woodwork and be gone.
When you are yourself others will quickly notice your confidence and see the inner good that you possess. This is true beauty, not some fake standard that magazines and celebrities hold out as perfection. If others like you for yourself then you know they will always be there for you through thick and thin. If people are only close to you because you always have flawless makeup and you wear the latest designer fashions then they will leave as soon as the good times end. If you want to be beautiful all you have to do is be yourself and you will shine with radiance.
