I believe that our inner circle needs to be filled with strong, supportive people who know who they are and what they want. People who will not let us fall, stumble maybe, but mostly they help us soar. I believe this enables us to be our best and to reach out then to others who need to be lifted.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, know suffering, known sturggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do no just happen.
