I am certain you have heard this a million times, but still we all have a tendency to evaluate what we see first and then perhaps give the opportunity to absorb the entire person place or thing or not. When it comes to fellow humans in their relationships, their judgment first comes with the visual. If we see a person who is overweight or someone who does not meet "our standers" we may not give that person a second "look" or initiate a conversion. Who knows what diamond can be found in the ruff and we missed because we were emotionally blind! We may have missed our soul mate.
It would appear that society does unfortunately dictate how we should perceive the beauty of a human by the way one dresses or appears.
Here is an excerpt from the story:
"Now having fully grown and matured cannot endure a life of solitude and hardship anymore and decides to throw himself at the flock of swans deciding that it is better to be killed by such beautiful birds than to live a life of ugliness and misery. He is shocked when the swans welcome and accept him, only to realize by looking at his reflection in the water that he has grown into one of them. The flock takes to the air and the ugly duckling spreads his beautiful large wings and takes flight with the rest of his new family".
