The ugly duckling does not become a beautiful swan

What makes you beautiful is thinking you’re beautiful. If you think about it, we are always seeing things and reading articles about how we should see ourselves in a good way (Although sometimes I still wish old fashioned bitching about myself wasn’t a crime, or even an excuse for a compliment) Somedays I wake up feeling ugly, and thats okay because it doesn’t mean I’m not beautiful.
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. They 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.
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
