The Beauty in individualism
Individualism is one of the main beliefs held by transcendentalists. This is one that I strongly believe in, it is being your own person , having your own thoughts and making your decisions. No one should be forced to follow or give in into something that is not themselves. Everyone should be free to explore and find themselves not conform and be what someone else expects them to be. Beauty and the idea of it was changed with transcendentalists. The belief was that everything and everyone had beauty no matter what. Not only was there visual beauty seen in nature but beauty from the inside a person that could be seen in anyone, no longer was beauty only "skin deep". These ideas allowed for more individual freedom and redefined what people thought along with how they viewed others and the world around them.
