The outside of us can be changed, but I believe it’s the inside shining out, that makes us beautiful.
If a “lot of men” find you ugly, and you look in the mirror and see a good looking girl, take a real hard look at the person inside that you’re conveying to the world.
I have an amazing man in my life that unfortunately is incurably ill. One day, years ago, I asked him what he liked most about me. I was expecting him to say my boobs, or my eyes, or my smile. You know, typical physical stuff that guys are attracted to—or so I thought. But he answered immediately with “what’s between your ears.” For me, that means the way I think, the conversations we have, my personality, the fun, the laughter and the love.
I almost died from an incurable disease in 2008. I wrote the memoir this year:I’ve lost lovers to death, I’ve lost possessions, marriage and the dreams of a future with the love of my life. I still don’t believe that “life is unfair.”
You cannot be ugly unless you think you are. But the first and best relationship in your life is going to be with yourself.
I’m grateful daily for the life I’ve been given and I look forward to every single day with love in my heart.
