Beauty & intellect
How important is it to you to be perceived as smart or beautiful?
These might be the two most overrated qualities in people. Superficial, and out of your control for the most part, why do we revere these two qualities so much?
Beautiful people aren’t necessarily happier and intellectuals don’t always live the most fulfilling lives.
It would be better if we praised having a skill or talent that was earned and worked for. There’s power in having a skill set that you’re in charge of.
