Son-of-a-bitch.

 

 

It’s like being back in high school.  Those same feelings.  Those same insecurities.  The popular girls whispering secrets in the hallway, snickering,  tossing long blond hair,  disregarding, aloof, arctic ice.

—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. –Elisabeth Kubler Ross
