I know me, I would try to get her to change the subject. But she wouldn't have any of it. She pulled a mirror out of her bag and made me look at myself. You are enough. You have no one that you need to hide from. You are beautiful from the inside out. Let them see what I see. You don't have to be strong all of the time. Learn to lean on someone when you need them. Even if you don't need them, lean on them.
We finished up our coffee and we said our goodbyes. And as she was walking out the door, she turned to me and said one more thing to me..
"That sunshine and daisies that you are always talking about. Let people see when the sun is dark and the daisies are wilting. They will still love you."
