Goddess of Self Love ❣️

Frida Kahlo, a Mexican artist, overcame numerous challenges, including polio and lifelong disabilities from a bus accident, to become one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century. Kahlo's work expressed her physical pain and emotional struggles, challenging societal norms and inspiring women worldwide.

SCD Balaji's Faithlore: Frida Kahlo is a great example for women who want to overcome self-pity and excuses for their "perceived limitations". Despite her physical challenges, Kahlo persisted in creating art. She often painted while lying in a hospital bed or sitting in a wheelchair.

To learn more about her, you can watch the movie "Frida" (2002).

Thirukkural: Determined individuals persevere through adversity, refusing to give up despite great loss. Elephants embody this strength, remaining steadfast even when hit by many arrows. - Industriousness, Thirukkural 597

பட்டுப்பா டூன்றுங் களிறு - திருக்குறள்
ஊக்கம் உடைமை, குறள் 597

தன்மீது அம்புகள் புதைந்து புண்பட்டபோதும் யானை தளராமல் தன் பெருமையை நிலைநிறுத்தும்; இதுபோல ஊக்கம் உடையவர் தமக்கு கேடு வந்த போதும் ஊக்கம் இழக்கமால் தம் பெருமையை நிலைநிறுத்துவர்.
