I am strong… because I know my weakness.
I am beautiful… because I am aware of my flaws.
I am fearless… because I learned to recognize illusion from real.
I am wise… because I learn from my mistakes.
I can laugh… because I have known sadness.
I am a lover… because I have felt hate and I prefer to love.

As adults, we try to develop the character traits that would have rescued our parents.
