Thank you, Jules, and I’ve been loving your writing since I joined Medium. I have lots of things posted (more stories, poems, essays, sharings), and I’m afraid lots of my responses turn into personal rantings, as well. Maybe we have a different idea of sacrifice. As soon as I make any kind of choice in life, I try not to regret it or think I’m giving up anything. It’s more about giving and sharing and healing and helping. Also, I guess I don’t care what you think this one time, because on this point you are just wrong — you are definitely beautiful, inside and out.
