"The courage to be is the courage to accept oneself, in spite of being unacceptable." - Paul Tillich
Even though I know the importance of self-acceptance, it has been difficult to not be disheartened by my own shortcomings. However, in comparison with my youth when I was laden with inferiority-complex, I have come a long way. This sculpture portrays my goal - with her beauty radiating from her confidence in the way she is.
