Lizzie Velasquez was born with a condition that effects her facial structure, heart,and makes her unable to gain weight For all of the women (or men?) out there who have wished to be unable to gain weight, I beg you reconsider. This is a shockingly different look, and more importantly,Lizzie looks so fragile. But as you watch the video you realize that she only looks fragile. Her heart and personality and spirit are so very beautiful and strong. A lot of "normal" (if there is such a thing as normal) looking people endure bullying. Imagine what torture cruel people have inflicted on Lizzie and yet she is able to have a positive outlook and find the bright side of things in spite of mean people saying things, in spite of having a rare disorder that effects not only her looks but her health, too. If Lizzie can be positive and happy, I can at least try. I got to know her story from this video that I'm linking to, but I have found other videos of hers, and I want to watch her movie. What a truly beautiful women.
Lizzie Velasquez on how she doesn't let neonatal progeroid syndrome define her. Still haven’t subscribed to Allure on YouTube? ?? http://bit.ly/AllureYouTube...

@crazyhorseladycx -- I love that you are true to yourself that way and it adds such character to your writing. Artistic. I too talk like I write, but in my case I fear that is wordy - and I dunno, stuffy maybe. lol. It's just me though. Agree - Lizzie is awesome and to me, she is so beautiful inside and her outsides - well, one of the first things I thought was that she looked like a Cubist painting, those paintings where people's features are angular. -- I mentioned it on her social media page - and hope that it is taken like a compliment... it's intended to be one

She is very strong even though she looks very fragile. I have watched her on YouTube several times too. :)

She sounds like a very strong woman. And beauty people seem to forget, is not everything. It's how you treat other people and how pretty you are inside.

I know, but you're right, unfortunately people do seem to forget about almost everything other than outward appearance - which has very little to do with who you are on the inside. Which is what makes you truly beautiful.
