“There is no beauty without some strangeness”
–Edgar Allan Poe
I saw this quote up on a chalkboard where I get my tea this morning. They also sell coffee but as I can’t handle caffeine anymore, I just get tea. I had not heard this quote before and I liked it. I’ve always thought of myself as a little odd, but I’ve always enjoyed my strangeness. Now I’m even more strange thanks to my fibromyalgia, but maybe that just enhances my inner beauty. I know I’ve changed a lot because of my chronic pain. I think some of those changes have made me a better person. I like the thought that these changes, even if they seem strange to “normal” people, add to my inner beauty.
