I find those dealing with struggle to be in a beautiful place in their life. This is where their growth happens. This is the point of change. This is their transition in life and they are not only surviving but moving past it no matter how much it hurts. It takes a tremendous amount of courage to wake up everyday with depression. It takes a whole lot of heart to live with a pace-maker in your chest. It takes a great deal of inner strength to cope with Lupus. These things show that people dealing with adversity are some of the strongest and most beautiful people in the world. I do not believe they are weak or broken or disabled. I believe they are empowered and magnificent.
