But personal growth continues to lead me in an almost fated way, making all days, the bad as well as the good, seem more gift than curse. I step with the joy of someone who passed through the fire, lived through the burning, and sees the value of the testing. I passed. I surpassed survival, and went straight to living. Whatever I get I earned, whatever I suffer I use.
All negatives fuel me that much closer to a positive. The doubt of others only makes me more resolute to show them that I do not belong in a mold of their design. A portrait on glass, painted by other hands then held up to my face is not a mirror of who I am.
I find no pleasure in walking through fire, but I do not fear the flames. I thrive because I never become my misfortunes.
Things happen to everyone, controlling the height of the flames is rarely possible. But fire inspired growth forges a strength that really comes no other way. Knowing that makes fire walking a much easier thing to master.
