For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn - Hemingway

The Beautiful Expat

Where I come from, beautiful people are happy. In my culture, depth and kindness mean beauty. The way I see it, happy people are beautiful and that happiness is defined by depth and kindness.

Here, everything is backwards.

This place has a concept of beauty so aesthetically concentrated it’s poisonous. Even those who fit the mold are shamed away from happiness under the delusion that beauty and depth should be strangers - distant cousins, at best.

It’s difficult for a beautiful soul to find themselves under these conditions as with true beauty and absolute happiness, one cannot exist without the other.
