Illustration found on a tissue box : )
"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." - Anais Nin
It can be any stage in life whereby situations can reduce your outgoing lifeforce to a bud, tight, with no where to go other than to remain there. I know someone like this, and wish I could help her bloom like a poppy. She is intelligent, perceptive, and talented to mention a few of her wonderful qualities. Unfortunately, she is unaware of them. When I look at her, she truly looks like she's in a tight bud. And all I can think of is how beautiful it would be if she could take the risk.
Does anyone have any suggestions how I can help this person break through?
