"I believe society's perception of beauty has become strongly influenced by wealth. The more expensive clothes, hair/makeup, plastic surgery, etc. are perceived as more beautiful than simplistic, natural beauty. Unfortunately, due to the fact that a lot of women/men can't afford these luxurious items, their self esteem is damaged, and thus their self worth is as well. I wish we could replace the measurement of someone's beauty by their personality rather than their wealth. This is proven to be very difficult because people are too quick to act on first impressions, which are based almost exclusively on physical appearance. Unfortunately, as a result of these assumptions, people miss out on the beauty of one's soul."
