"Has the world's definition of beauty ever jaded you?"
I would be shocked if any woman answered this question with a no. I know I often look in the mirror and feel discouraged. Certain parts of my body are too small, others are too big. I have lots of scars from acne/bug bites/etc (which I tended to pick as a nervous habit). My face is rarely clear.
Make-up skills came relatively late in life--like, after college--and I have only recently begun dressing my age. I doubt that many people consider me beautiful, but this does not bother me nearly as much as it used to! My husband calls me beautiful, and I find myself feeling more confident as I grow older. Now, when I pretty up, I want to look good so that I make adequate arm candy for my handsome husband. ;-)
