I think she means as we age we aren’t as worried about popularity or what everyone thinks of us. This attitude can lead to seeing the different traits and good qualities of others.

To me, it's like the song, "All God's Creatures Got a Place in the Choir". We all shine in our own way.

We are all unique in our own ways - good, bad and beautiful. Whether it is in creating something wonderful even lovely cookies and cake, mending and fixing the broken things and people in our lives, making memorable moments for family and friends, seeing the extraordinary in others can help us love the extra-ordinary in ourselves. Sally and Eve do this for each other.
