While in the hospital, an elderly woman was talking to me about low self-esteem. She 

went on to this story: If you had a shiny diamond, would it be worth a lot of money? I

answered yes. She asked if the diamond had been dropped if it still be worth a lot. I said

yes. Then, she asked if the diamond had a little dirt on it, if it was still worth a lot. Again, I

replied yes. She told me that we were all a diamond. Yes, we will be dropped and get a little

dirty, but that won't change the fact that we're worthy and important.
