While I know that intelligence is supposed to be important, I sometimes feel the same.
Manchita1 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hey, looks and beauty are hardwired into humans' brains to look important. Why do you think cosmetics and plastic surgery are so popular? Why do you think we always try to look good?

But, there is something much more valuable. It's not not even intelligence. It's love; God sees each person to the full extent of their true beauty. You could be, physically, the ugliest person on Earth, but God will always see the beauty in you. And He will always love you.

"Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." -Proverbs 31:30

Everyone is beautiful in their own way. Beauty nowadays is just an unrealistic standard that you should not try to conform to, because getting there is a road paved with extreme unhappiness.
Beauty is not always an outside thing- I'd rather be a plain, ordinary person who's interesting than a shallow, petty, pretty girl stuck in fantasy land.

I can kind of relate to this one. I hate not being "pretty" even though I know it doesn't matter if I look "pretty" or not as long as I am me. I have to say I think it is a personal thing that makes you want to look pretty and not ugly and smart. Like for me it is to be impressive in beauty as I've never thought I was pretty and still don't. But what I'm tying to say is it doesn't make you a bad person to want to look nice, its part of being human, but keep in mind being smart isn't bad either. ;)

I felt this way through some of my life. I hated myself for being ugly, I was teased for it, and the only thing I had was my smarts during adolescence. It took years, but I'm starting to see that I do have some physical qualities worth looking at. See, the thing is, is that you are not beautiful until you realize you are, once that happens, things falls into place.

But you are beautiful.
Baby-Nakker Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2013
Society places such a ridiculous expectation on what beauty is that is makes all of us feel that we should be prettier, smarter, etc. I feel that every person is beautiful the way they are and I sincerely mean that. Just always remember that even when you feel the world is just against you and what you have to offer you always have the love of family and friends. :)

If you're smart and ugly, you're intelligent to recognize it and beat yourself up over it. When you're intelligent it's easier to beat yourself up over everything really... :/

True story.
Sometimes I wish to be stupid to just forget about all the problems in the world.
Stupid people live the most enjoyable lifes, yet you'll only notice so if you're smart.

Use your smarts to make you pretty then!
Ugly, smart people can become pretty, just like pretty, dumb girls can get smart!

it's all about willpower and willingness to change.
Poneezi Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2013  Student General Artist
There is no such thing as a ugly person with a beautiful inside. I bet you are not ugly on the inside. Everyone's beauty is different, not everyone looks like a model.

The prettier president has always won. Tis true.

Who says you can't be pretty AND smart? There's a 16-year-old girl in Essex in the UK who has an IQ higher than Eintein, and she's pretty too, so if she can be both, why can't you?

There's no line between the two like you seem to believe, ST. Be smart and pretty, or ugly and smart, or pretty and dumb, or dumb and ugly... Whatever the heck you want, but I think smart and pretty is the way to go for you. :)
HarleyHaHa Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013
There is something beautiful about everyone, whether that something is inside or out. Find it and embrace it! :)
The-Spoonrider Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013
Well personally I think that if a person is really attractive, but is also a huge douche/bitch, then that person really isn't attractive to me. So I think the most beautiful people are the ones who are beautiful behaviorally.
Anayo-s Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013
Personally one of my biggest turn-offs is females who are gorgeous but unintelligent. That's just me though.
xXNibiNoNekoXx Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013
Be yourself. So if you want to dress up and look like some sexy babe go ahead. But that doesn't mean you can't be smart as well. Go ahead and learn as much as you can and be as smart as you want to be and remember, being smart isn't limited to being good at science or math, being wise and having common sense is a type of being really intelligent.

Just don't forget, be yourself, no matter if everybody else disagrees with it.
Iduna-Haya Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Honestly, for me smart is the new sexy. No matter if you are a boy or a girl. And Solum-Ipsum is right, please learn to love your inner beauty, and it will shine though. (It might be one of the hardest things you will ever learn, I know it was for me, but it will be the best lesson you will ever learn in your entire life)
grj-tardis Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013
i agree with the above comment. it is hard to deal with the whole beauty thing in our world today. i suppose everyone has a slightly different idea of what is beautiful and what they prefer. and i am sure there is something (many things) lovely about you that you do not even notice!
belgiantervuren Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013
Because society today doesn't even realize that it places so much stock on physical beauty, or at least the current idealism of beauty. I'll bet you're beautiful, even if it's not in the super-model tv-commercial overdramatized way it is now.
Solum-Ipsum Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Fuck body-positivism. Yeah, some people are born ugly, some become ugly, but trust me, loving yourself for your good things and forgiving yourself for your rigid shortcomings will help you radiate an inner beauty of contentment.
limeheer Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013
because of the atention. we all need it. but hold on. the nerds control the world so if you just hang on you will get the attention
