No, wait, I’ll give you mine first.
Here it is:
“I’m really glad I wasn’t blessed with great looks because it forced me to develop character and also to actually achieve something in order to get recognition.”
Now I’m not saying there isn’t any truth to that, mind you.
I’m just saying that if someone had long ago knocked on my door and said, “Um, we have some great looks for you. Of course, you might not develop character and achievements as a result, but here it is,” I surely would have grabbed ’em like a slicker in a rainstorm!
Therefore it’s a rationale, dig?
So what’s your own favorite one that you tell yourself to make lemonade out of wee-wee?
