Today I read this:
Tumblr Redefined Society vs. Beauty for Me
And it struck a cord for me. Could’ve been me in high school (since nothing like Facebook and Tumblr existed then! E-mail lists were about as sophisticated as we got…) and I love the message it sends.
I can’t say this without sound ridiculously corny, but I do think people with disabilities or who feel different in any kind of way learn to find beauty in unexpected places and to embrace it. It’s a powerful lesson to learn, but one that is often difficult.
