As we transform into someone better, we will feel fragile.
We will feel uncertain and afraid.
We will tell ourselves that the solution to this fragility is to return to who we once were.
This temptation must be resisted.
It will not work anyway.
There is no going back.
There is only forward.
Even in our path forward, we have to make a choice.
We must decide if we want to risk everything we know and face our fragility or if we want to choose the dubious comfort of cowardice.
There are no guarantees either way.
No matter what we choose, things may not work out.
Only one choice offers the possibility of a new, better life, however.
Even with this knowledge, our decision will not be easy.
