“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
~Elizabeth Kubler Ross
I believe this quote to be true. The people I admire, the ones who inspire me, have all had things to overcome. I get inspired because they were brave enough to bare all, their naked souls, which only empowers me to be brave too. They have shared their true selves, and no matter how ugly the truth is, what I see is beauty.
