Why a Woman will Never Believe She Is Beautiful

You might think that an attractive person will always think that he or she is attractive, but this is not true.
Many people find themselves instantly less attractive after staring at a more attractive face for a few seconds.

In other words, if you are a good-looking person then suddenly saw someone more attractive than you, then you might actually find yourself looking less attractive.

In one study, it was found that men find their wives less attractive after watching a TV program or a movie featuring more attractive women. In other words, the way we think of our own physical beauty has a lot to do with the comparisons we make all the time.

The human brain works this way. It keeps making associations between things and comparing them to other things no matter how good or bad you think this way is. I always hear personal development gurus asking people not to compare themselves to others, but this is practically impossible on the brain’s level.

Why a woman will never believe she is beautiful

So why are women more subject to doubts about their looks?
No matter how great a woman looks or how beautiful she thinks she is, sooner or later, she will find a more attractive woman in a poster, in a commercial, or a movie.

The world we live in now has commoditized and commercialized women’s looks. It’s almost impossible to see a new movie or a commercial without coming across a wonderful woman somewhere. As other women keep seeing those women, they start to feel that they are not that attractive.

You might think that this happens just to average-looking women, but in fact, this phenomenon is common among all women, including famous actresses and even models. On more than one occasion, a model or a famous actress made it clear that being surrounded by more beautiful women made them feel much less attractive.

Cameron Russel, A famous model, once said in a TedEx speech that she hardly feels attractive as she always finds herself surrounded by beautiful women. Cameron said that those models are the most insecure people on earth.

So if that’s how a model thinks, then what about the average woman who gets brutally compared to swimsuit models all the time?

Beauty standards are rising.

Globalization and the widespread of the internet have made beauty standards go much higher. If a man gets exposed to so many ads featuring flawlessly looking women, then certainly his beauty standards will go high as long as he believes he can do well.

This also happens with women, but because the media focuses more on women’s looks, the problem is more apparent with men.

So what can a woman do to feel good about her looks?
Should she try to stop comparing herself to others?
Well, technically, this can happen.

A woman can do the one thing to avoid looking at ads, fashion shows, and other gorgeous women. When a woman does so, she will like her looks more, and she will believe that she is attractive.

Not an easy solution, I know, but it can work.
