I asked a fortune teller once: Will I prosper or stall?
My child, she said:
When your flaws are held up for you to face and for the world to see, will you know which cracks to water?
Will your green hands nourish the cracks from which the young seedlings of your future will grow, or pander to the weeds of your past that will hold you back?
The greatest courage lies not in confronting the world, but rather confronting the world within.
