I feared being alone...until I learned to like


I feared people's opinions...until I learned

that people would have opinions about me anyway.

I feared failure.....until I realized that

they are only the stepping stones to success.

I feared rejection ....until I learned

to have faith in myself.

I feared pain...until I learned

that it is necessary for growth.

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

in lies.

I feared life...until I experienced

that it depends solely on my attitude.

I feared death....until I realized

that it is only a beginning.

I feared hate...until I saw

that it was nothing more than ignorance.

I feared love....until I realized that

I do need the other person to love me back

I feared ridicule....until I learned

how to laugh at myself.

I feared success ... until I learned

that it is okay to be the best I can.

I feared growing old....until I realized

that I gained the beauty of wisdom every day.

I feared the dark...until I saw

the beauty of the stars and moonlight.

I feared the past....until I realized

that it can only hurt me if I allow it to do so.

I feared the future....until I realized

that it is only this moment that matters.

I feared change.....until I saw

that even the most beautiful butterfly had to undergo a metamorphosis before it could fly.
