I love to get someone back for saying something nasty to me, but I think through this I've gained a point of empathy where I can actually understand that [people] might have some s*** going on themselves," she told People. "I think it's never a bad thing to learn to be a better, kinder person."Teigen said it was the love and support she and her husband John Legend received from fans on the internet after revealing the loss of their son Jack that made her see what was really important."It's just been an incredible experience to see the outpouring of love from the internet and the handwritten cards we've gotten. We couldn't even walk through our house for a week—there were just too many flowers. You do see beauty through the darkest clouds," she said.Legend credits all the love from strangers to his wife's courage. "I think part of what attracted all that love and outpouring of support for Chrissy was her having the courage to share her story with people and our story with people," he said.
