Who decides that you look ugly ?

“I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down to us. Pigs treat us as equal” Winston Churchill

By deciding and calling somebody or something ugly…are we not questioning the Wisdom of Almighty?

Do ever the so called Ugly Persons think that he or she is ugly?

The whole world is obsessed with ‘beauty’

I can never know why people like what they like and decide to differentiate between ugly & beauty.

Maybe advertising beauty products is one of the reasons?  I am not sure. But one thing I am sure of obsession with being beautiful is a sure recipe for low self-esteem.

“No matter how ugly you are; there is always someone who sees his heaven in your eyes.”              M.F. Moonzajer

Appearance

Unfortunately we always mean ugly, in terms of one’s appearance.

Sadly we extend the notion of beauty to the animal kingdom too!

Can anything escape the human eye?

Now coming to the topic…

Are pigs ugly?

No, my friend.

All creations of God are beautiful.

Pigs are not ugly by appearance.

My guess is they are called ugly may be due to the garbage they eat or being fat and overweight and most importantly they enjoy playing in the dirty mud.

But we forget that that is what pigs are supposed to be.

“A pig has its own nature; no one can take that away from him, it can’t be changed, why blame the poor thing?”  Unknown 

Take home message

“Don’t look for a pretty face- it will turn old one day

Don’t look for good skin- it will turn wrinkle one day

Don’t look for a hot body- it will change one day

Don’t look for nice hair- it will turn white one day

Instead, look for a loyal heart- that will love every day”  unknown

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    Ugly is in the eye of the beholder. In older times The fatter a person was the more beautiful. Now the opposite. Peasants have always been ugly to royalty yet somehow they are able to breed faster. There must be some attractiveness some where.

      Well said my friend.
      Beauty is hidden for some to see, so they mistake it as ugly.
      These people are blind to appreciate the beauty!

      Sometimes role reverses as you pointed out regarding fat vs zero size
      Now time to laugh at these people😃😃
