“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
Beautiful People Do Not Just Happen

I think this is really beautiful.
And I think it can be said for relationships too. My in-laws celebrated twenty years and both were third loves for each other. They really said that they had been through personal hells and suffering and knew to hold on very tightly to new love.
Thanks, Tamara. Every time I read her words, I find some solace. The messiness matters.
This is so true – the most beautiful people aren’t physically beautiful but heroic and persevere – they’re motivational and inspiring. 🙂 Happy Friday Rudri!! -Iva
Thanks, Iva. When you unbox typical definitions of beauty, you uncover an entire world.
True and beautiful.
