The Misfit's Myth

…slightly to the side or underneath the Hero’s Journey… [is] the misfit’s myth:  Even at the moment of your epic failures, you are beautiful. Because you have risen from mud or trauma or despair or jail or grief or abuse or alcohol or drugs, you have the ability to endlessly make yourself from your own ruins.  That’s your beauty.

–  Lidia Yuknavitch, Lenny Letter
