WELL

Reminds me of an old song, " she aint pretty, she just looks that way". It's whats inside that counts! More people should see that. Is no one honest anymore?

What is truth?

Pontius Pilate said it best.
Tell the truth, and everyone assumes you're lying, hiding something, or flattering yourself somehow. Because that's the norm, and truth is the exception.

Someone who was in a submitting-proposals line of work, recently wrote that one must always oversell and overpromise. Otherwise the proposal doesn't stand a chance.
Same with humans in this, the age of eight-second attention spans, deep fakes, social media, personal brands, Insta and simulated everything. Most of it is bullsh*t and honesty is assumed to be more of the same. A signal-to-noise problem.
I don't bother telling people anything anymore. Unless they specifically ask. Otherwise, it's just a "long story". That would bore you because (a) it's not about you, (b) it's not exaggerated for effect, (c) you would likely not believe me, and (d) you almost certainly don't really care. I'll just save us both a lot of time, and change the subject to weed, gossip or real estate, or anything else actually relevant to North Americans.
If I had a dollar for every time someone thought I was lying, it would buy a lovely top-tier vacation to Barbados.

... not true. There is ample evidence showing that pretty people get treated better. "What's inside counts" is what they tell ugly people to keep them on the plantation.

Because I won't do what they want. Hence I remain beautiful both inside and out, only to those who don't want to abuse me! And that's perfectly fine with me

You are not going to find some saint who loves people for who they are on a spiritual level. Even if you did, you'd probably treat them like crap if they weren't good looking enough.

Well....

Can't say I disagree. I have a sister who is very attractive and can easily attract men; unfortunately she has serious anger management issues that have destroyed relationships with people around her (myself included) and she's still single. Pretty ain't everything.
