THIS....

THIS.... says it better than I ever could.

Excerpt:
"I’ve been trained to view beauty as a rule that excludes me, a weapon
that anyone could use against me: we all have. But when we try to think
generously about beauty, to look for it with pleasure instead of with envy, it
only expands. Beauty is not a finite quantity. It has room for you. It has room
even for me." -

You should read the whole post, though. It's amazing, perfect, and heart-aching. I'm only bothering to cross-post it because I have a few friends that don't read other fatosphere blogs, but really, truly need to read this. Don't read it anywhere it's inappropriate to cry.

One hundred percent accurate! Wouldn't this world be a truly exceptional place if everyone had the same kind of intelligence and sensitivity?
