I FEARED UNTIL…


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 my self.

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.
