Would you rather be beautiful or happy?

Would you rather be beautiful or happy? I’m not complaining. I really want to hear real answers. My experience is this… I had a pretty bad childhood. I was a really bad teenager and got in alot of trouble. And the first half of my 20’s has been devoted to my husband and children. When I turned 25, I had a total crisis. I am living someone else’s dream ( my nightmare ) and I am to blame. BUT… I am a beautiful person. (not being conceeded) I was an average awkward child. But I have just grown in beauty. I have had more people tell me that I look better after 2 kids than I did in high school. I am a very spiritual person and try to be the best person I can be. I think that by loving myself and accepting my beauty, not pointing out my wrongs, makes me even better as a person. Once I learned to love myself, I could give more love. Any thoughts? Happiness or Beauty?

Being beautiful is fun… It’s almost like having a golden ticket, doors open for you, customer service is fabulous and there is nothing like walking into a room and owning it. People are usually super nice, except for women who are insecure. They cannot stand being near a beauty and can even be kind of snippy but they are to be pitied. I would choose beauty every other day alternated with happy days. I know I chose both, but hey, if I can’t be happy too, then I would choose to be a sad beauty, pouty and sullen and always… Read more »

I do not know why there must be a choice. Beauty or happy….. Beauty, dear, is often in the eye of the beholder—not everyone who believes he or she is beautiful truly is….but in his or her own eyes, may well be—or in the eyes of someone who truly loves a person, they may be beautiful. Have you spent much time talking with others and learning about their lives? There are many, many people who have had very difficult, abusive childhoods…..and some of them did grow up to be rebellious teens……. You married rather early and had children….but at 25… Read more »

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and age can fade it or alter it. Happiness is everlasting if you are determined to have it. There are people who are physically attractive on the outside but rotten to the core in personality which makes there outside beauty look really ugly. There are those who are physically unattractive in physical appearance but are very nice and this overshadows there unattractiveness. I choose both because I’ve decided to be beautiful and happy.

if youre a happy person, you make everyone around you happy no matter if youre beautifull or not so atractive, if youre bitter or bitchy or angry all the time, even if youre the most beautifull woman in the world it wont help you that much, what counts is whats inside of you.

Happiness.
At least that can LAST!
Besides, if you choose beauty, then you are guilty of vanity…and vain people are never happy for long.

Hon, if you live life secretly reveling in your “beauty”, you are truly an ugly person.

Although i have barely any experience, (14 years old) You have conquered one of the hardest obstacles in life, which is learning to love oneself, without being conceited. You must be a very fun person to be around because you are so confident. It takes years for people to accomplish this. Good for you!! (not sarchastic)
By choosing beauty, you are wishing for happiness and acceptance from others. Happiness is better.

Well i cant see any benefit in being beautiful and unhappy, so I gotta say I would prefer to be happy. If i was hideously ugly, but happy within myself, thats got to be better than being devastatingly beautiful yet depressed and suicidal.

I, too, was a ‘late bloomer’. I lost tons of weight after my second child 21 years ago. Yes, I’ve been told I’m beautiful, but none of that matters if you’re loved unconditionallly. Unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way that looks come and looks go, but unconditional love (from a husband or boyfriend) far out weighs any beauty you may feel. PLEASE think about the long-term effects of thinking you are beautiful. Looks fade; love never ends.

Happiness would be for me. Beauty fades, and things sag and are expensive to fix, but happiness is priceless and worth much much more! If you lead a happy life then you lead a successful life!
