Metamorphosis – the life cycle of a butterfly – reminds me to embody the change. To have the ability to accept who we are, and spread our wings to see the beauty of the world from a wider perspective. A lot is expected from us in this society. More emphasis is on performances and targets. We aim for perfection which is an illusion that keeps us caught in a never-ending cycle of unhappiness and disappointment. Sometimes we realize the truth: perfection doesn’t exist. We can withdraw from the demanding world and reflect on ourselves, finding out that change is needed to achieve self-compassion.
