“People are like dirt. They can either nourish you and help you grow as a person or they can stunt your growth and make you wilt and die”~Plato.
The lotus is one of my favorite flowers. Not only are they just so pretty but I like how they symbolize growth from rather difficult circumstances. They are both delicate and yet at the same time, quite strong and tough. I think that as humans, it is the balance of this dichotomy between hard and soft that we should also strive for within for ourselves.
