Look at a recently broken stone. It is generally rough with ragged edges. A stone that has been rolled around by storm and sea for years, however, becomes rounded and smooth.
So it is with many of us.We come here rough-hewn with hard edges and the years slowly wear our psyches into a rounder, more comforting shape. Easier to get close to, easier to hold. We still have our unique characteristics, but we're much more accessible.
