about this story

These 5card represent my life as they visualize myself from the very beginning to the present. Before I become to be a beautiful flower; I first began knowing nothing like the road closed in the second picture where I don't have any idea where should I start? how can I go if the path of my destination is closed? am I be able to continue my journey even there are so many things that stop me from going? I was attacked of anxiety; knowing that I will not be able to continue. I felt like I'm in a forest alone, didn't know where should I go like in the third picture. Honestly, starting is far difficult than improving. The anxiety itself is crippling. The thought that you probably started too late and that you'll never catch up can put your motivation and enthusiasm to a sink. I was scared. Though I think, I shouldn't let it dominate, I shouldn't allow myself to be left behind. I should be like on the fourth picture where it shows the darkness yet it changes until tomorrow which giving us light; and another reason to live. In the fifth picture, there is a sea that symbolizes peace and calmness. Having peace and calmness helps us to think wisely. Helping myself to start over again. Those feelings were difficult yet I tried to fight for it to become a flower; to bloom and see its beauty. In addition, Socrates's philosophy motivates me on his word "I know nothing"; it's hard to understand yet meaningful.
