I am not meant to be beautiful. There are some people who are, and that’s fine for them. But I’m not one of them. Others of us are meant to struggle and to have a hard time and to be challenged. And to figure out what it’s like to live a slightly more difficult life. Even if it’s pretty easy in the long run.
And that’s okay. It’s okay to be a little more difficult. It’s okay to not be beautiful.
And it’s also okay to not be ugly.
