Lessons of Life

[Lessons of Life

I feared being alone until I learned to like myself.

I feared failure until I realized that I only
fail when I don't try.

I feared success until I realized that I had to try in order to be happy with myself.

I feared people's opinions until I learned that
people would have opinions about me anyway.

I feared rejection until I learned to have faith in myself.

I feared pain until I learned that it's necessary
for growth.

I feared the truth until I saw the ugliness in lies.

I feared life until I experienced its beauty.

I feared death until I realized that it's not an end, but a beginning.

I feared my destiny, until I realized thatI had the power to change my life.

I feared hate until I saw that it was nothing more than ignorance.

I feared love until it touched my heart, making the darkness fade into endless sunny days.

I feared ridicule until I learned how to laugh at myself.

I feared growing old until I realized that I gained wisdom every day.

I feared the future until I realized that life just kept getting better.

I feared the past until I realized that it could no longer hurt me.

I feared the dark until I saw the beauty of the starlight.

I feared the light until I learned that the truth would give me strength.

I feared change, until I saw that even the most beautiful butterfly had to undergo a metamorphosis
before it could fly.

I agree with kitten, I'm all about the flutterbies too.. Alamo this was sooo wonderful. I've never written something this real or true or beautiful. I loved it.

I am very happy that you did enjoy it.

Thank you for your very kind comments; they mean a lot to me.

I didn't know that you like butterflies. I will keep my eyes out for them.
