Couple Shows The Reality Of The Everyday Struggle Of Chronic Illness

Not all health problems are visible. The mind can be clouded and take just as much of a toll on the physical body. No matter how pure and aligned our souls are, we all have bad days and we do our best to deal with them. Yet, we sometimes forget that it's pain that makes us human and we punish ourselves with guilt when we simply need a break.

This couple appointed themselves as advocates sharing inspiring messages and educating others to be a little more mindful of themselves. By helping one another find sympathy for ourselves then we will be able to extend it to others as well.

Even The Good Days Are Hard

Sarah wrote to her 115k followers an honest message explaining: "A lot of the time I'm super hesitant to let anyone know that I am having a better day.

Most people forget that my illness is chronic. They see me laughing, smiling and genuinely enjoying my day and make the assumption that I'm permanently better. But what they are seeing is just one good day. They don't see the really terrible days and thus I get nervous that they think I can go out, party, and spend my energy like they do on a daily."

They're Not Asking For Pity

All this couples hope to manifest is relief. Yet relief is not just for the physical body, but a release for the mind as well. the choices that someone with chronic illness makes might be different and sometimes hard to understand, but that doesn't make them wrong.

We each have the freedom to chose our path for as long as we all thriving for the same ultimate destination " We didn't choose this life and all we want is to feel better, " Justin explains.

The Four Facial Traits That Make The Most Attractive People

Researchers keep on trying to unlock the million-dollar question: what makes a person the most beautiful? The media keeps on changing the women they show as most beautiful and we keep on changing our appearance and fashion in an attempt to keep up. But the question is, do we actually ever actually "feel" beautiful?"

Does it truly come down to a science, where certain traits deem a person most attractive or is beauty relative like they say? Let's find out!

The More Symmetry The Better

​Many experimental studies have shown that men and women both prefer faces that are more symmetrical. They even came up with ratios and masks that can measure the level of symmetry in a face, and by extension its beauty. Even monkeys have been noticed gazing longer at symmetrical faces.

But why? Well, science doesn't seem to have gotten that far. It could have something to do with evolution and our brains tricking themselves into thinking that a symmetrical face must be a sign of good health. Maybe we associate good genes with the more successful development of a facial structure.

Having "Babyface" Features

​The idea of the fountain of youth didn't come out of anywhere. There is a belief that people are at their most beautiful in the prime of their youth, where they've grown enough to have adult features, but haven't experienced enough to lose their innocence and be affected by the environment.

From this idea, came the "baby face", where large eyes, long lashes, a cute little nose, a small chin, plump lips, and rosy cheeks are desirable. These traits can either describe a baby or a supermodel but the idea is that they reflect feelings of warmth, trust and won't argue back.

The More Average, The More Relatable

People are actually attracted to faces that appear distinctly average. Yes, the more you look like the general population, the more attractive you can come off, which just seems ironic.

The reason some studies made this conclusion, is that teh more average a face is, the more they likely are to be a blend of genes A study, published in the journal Human Nature said that average faces might be a reflection of a more diverse set of genes, which we might subconsciously consider as stronger in fighting off illnesses.

Something About Getting Older

Maybe women seem more attractive with baby faces but forget about youth when it comes to women's attraction to men. Women might actually end up being more attracted to men who look older according to a study.

This idea is still evolving and has something to do with women finally having a place in the workforce. The more financially independent they become, the more they like older guys, according to the study. They even named this the "George Clooney Effect" which showed women that the more patient they are, the better their chances at finding a man has more status and resources due to being older.

Familiar Faces Per Genetics

Ask yourself how you feel when you meet someone who looks like someone else you love? You probably automatically take a liking to them just because they seem familiar, even if you've truly never met them before. You might even just trust them right away. In the same way, the more familiar a person might feel, the more we could be attracted to them.

Another study found that the faces we are attracted to are heavily influenced by our personal experiences in life, and probably nothing more. This theory says it's not because of genetics as even twins couldn't agree on who they found attractive. It just depends on who you meet and look at throughout your life and the experiences you associate with them.

Basically You Can't Win

Well, it turns out, even when you try to with science, you really can't define beauty. Some people are attracted to babyfaces, while some can't help but be drawn to older ones. Some people's brains attach symmetry with good health while others just want an average-looking face to continue their genes. So the message is, beauty is relative after all. I am beautiful and you are beautiful and everyone will be most attractive to someone.

Rather than focus on looks, focus on the person on the inside. You're here for a reason. This is your sign to get to know yourself better and unleash your potential.
