What Do You Fear?

October 19, 2012



 


I Feared...

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 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, 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.
