The lyrics of the song by One Direction ‘You don’t know you’re beautiful’ present an interesting dimension to beauty which I don’t think is true. All beautiful women, even just passably pretty women know what they look like.
I was watching a movie starring Halle Berry and I turned to my friend and asked her what it would be like to look in the mirror and know that you are so amazingly gorgeous.
When I was in high school I knew I was not pretty, not even passably cute (we all know when we’re not pretty, especially when my mother was beautiful). I’m not sure when the metamorphosis occurred but all of a sudden I got pretty and I sure as heck knew it.
There are some days now when I look in the mirror and say yuck and don’t like what I see, but for the majority of the time I know the cuteness of me.
Is One Direction correct? Do some women not know they are beautiful, making them more beautiful or is that just garbage?
