Someone called me a classical beauty. What does that mean?
I’ve been called a classical beauty by more than one person. It’s not something I’d normally ask about, but it got me thinking: What does that mean? Does it mean I’m old-fashioned or unattractive? Is it a compliment or an insult? Do I need to change myself to fit into this category of “classical beauty”? And why is “classical” even a thing people say about someone’s appearance in the first place?
It’s a compliment!
The term “classical beauty” is a compliment. It means you’re beautiful. And it’s not something that people usually give to men, so don’t feel weird about it!
If you’re feeling really insecure about it, think of some other people who might have the same feature.
If you’re feeling really insecure about it, think of some other people who might have the same feature. Maybe your friend has a nose like yours and she loves it because she thinks it makes her look sophisticated and elegant. Or maybe there’s a celebrity with the same nose as yours and they’re always talking about how much they love their nose because it makes them unique!
If that doesn’t help, try thinking about something else positive about yourself or your body. Maybe you have great hair or nice teeth? Or maybe even just one thing–maybe your eyes are bright blue like ocean water on an early spring day (or whatever).
Try not to think that this means you need to change yourself.
While this is a compliment, it doesn’t mean you need to change your appearance or personality. Don’t let someone’s words make you feel bad about yourself. You are beautiful just the way you are!
If someone else tells you that they think of classical beauty when they see you, don’t try to change yourself into something else just so they’ll like it better; they may still not like what they see even after all of your changes have been made. And if someone says that classical beauty means “beauty” (which most people would agree), then why do we even need more words?
Treat yourself with the same respect you’d treat someone else.
If you’ve ever been called a classical beauty, it’s likely because you have features that are considered “classical” by society. These can include things like being tall and thin with long limbs and narrow hips, or having an oval-shaped face with high cheekbones and full lips. While these descriptions may seem like they’re referring only to one type of person–and while there are many people who do fit into this mold–it’s not true that everyone who has these traits is automatically beautiful (or even good looking).
If someone calls you a classical beauty, don’t let it define how you feel about yourself! Instead of thinking about what makes someone else attractive or unattractive in general terms, focus on how YOU feel about yourself right now: Do I like my body? Who am I as an individual? Am I happy being me? If not…why not?
If you’re feeling really insecure about this, think of some other people who might have the same feature. You might be surprised at how many there are! And if you feel like this person was trying to make you feel bad about yourself, remember that they don’t know what they’re talking about. Treat yourself with the same respect you’d treat someone else
