I’ve been asked to make some life changes by our Creator, please be patient while in transition.
I don’t know what needs to be done nor how to ask for help. I’m in a cocoon where I don’t know which way is up, how to get out, or if/when I will be able to fly.
Please be patient with me, I am doing the very best I can with the limited light in this cocoon.
Please do not judge, give lofty advice, or pass me by in my struggle.
I need your help, I just don’t know how much, how often, or why.
Please be open with me, I no longer have the insightful eyes to see myself with and need you to share your observations, but please, be careful for I am a weak and struggling caterpillar longing to fly.
Please love me as I am, I am longing to be free but am struggling in the midst of this growth process. I am not who I was before, nor am I who I will be, please love me where I am, as I am.
Please do not rush, prematurely cut me from this cocoon, tell me I’ll be grateful for this pain, or linger in memories of how I used to be.
“‘How does one become a butterfly?’ she asked pensively.
‘You must want to fly so much
that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.'”
