This is from my dear friend’s sister. I think it says it all….
Well, what it doesn’t say is that it’s impossibly sad that a lovely woman wants to write this at all. I think she’s beautiful. She’s funny and smart and talented and creative and kind. Isn’t that enough for our stupid world?
Here’s what she wrote:
I’m not the most beautiful woman in the world, nor am I the ARM CANDY, that men want- but I’m me. I love to eat maybe more than I should. I have scars because I have a history. Some people love me, some like me and some hate me. I have done well. I have done poorly. I go without make up or only wear it on special occasions and sometimes don’t get my hair done. I am random and silly. I don’t pretend to be someone I’m not. I am who I am. If I say I love you, I do it whole heartedly!! I make no apologies for who I am.
Damn right! It’s heart-breaking that we even feel like we might need to apologize for being our selves!
