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 dont try.

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

I feared people’s opinions,
until I learned that people will 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 that I 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, made 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 stars that were shining.

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 went through a metamorphosis before it can fly.
