I had the pleasure of meeting Jeannette Walls, Author of the NY Times Best Seller, “The Glass Castle”.
Her memoir includes stories where she recalls the physical and emotional pain of having a “weird” childhood. She also talks about the many gifts she’s received from her experiences in the form of hope, strength, and appreciation for life’s beauty.
I love this quote, she shared from a conversation with her then-husband-to-be, it is incredibly empowering.
Never be ashamed of your scars whether they are physical or emotional, they make us unique, allow us to grow, and make us stronger.
