Diversity and adversity are necessary catalysts for personal development. We all want to grow, to develop, to become more than we are. None of us want the adversity, but it seems that the development cannot be had without the adversity. The same with diversity: there cannot be change and change without pain – birth pangs of a sort.
No eruption from a chrysalis comes without pain. And yet we are not masochists.
Youth grows through ignorance, but beyond that first flush growth requires courage because we know that it will hurt and we have no joy in pain.
To growth and courage; to Life!
