Growth occurs when you stop caring about what other people think,
When you stop using their opinions as limitations
And instead look deep within yourself
For strengths and abilities you've always had,
Qualities that, once veiled by the dust of your own doubt
Uncovered, radiate from your soul,
Ready to be exercised.
It's up to you to start this process
Because when you grow, you grow from the inside, out.
