TED talk – The beauty of being a misfit

How refreshing to have a really real person on ted… I love most of the ted talks don’t get me wrong but it’s nice to see someone outside the nice clean lines of society being awesome and being seen in that. “don’t listen to anyone who tells you to shut up or change your story…. give voice to the story only you know how to tell… sometimes telling the story is the thing that saves your life.”

To those who feel like they don’t belong: there is beauty in being a misfit. Author Lidia Yuknavitch shares her own wayward journey in an intimate recollection of patchwork stories about loss, shame and the slow process of self-acceptance. “Even at the moment of your failure, you are beautiful,” she says. “You don’t know it yet, but you have the ability to reinvent yourself endlessly. That’s your beauty.”
