I grew up as an ugly duckling and didn't blossom until well in my twenties.
It still deeply surprises me when people comment on my beauty...especially those who I find to be beautiful.
I'm highly greatful and humbled that the most difficult thing I face in my life is coming to terms with such comments.
ms quiet one... from what I've read of your posts... you sound beautiful on the inside... so I'm sure your beauty more than shines on the outside.
one day I'll recount the true-life story of my ex-neighbour, whose lifetime of outer beauty created an ugly old woman. A very sad tale from which I learned a huge life's lesson.
