What is the greatest lesson you have learned?
To not hold everyone to my own standard. I've had so much stress and disappointment because of this. I would get angry and constantly letdown when I let this get out of control.
What is the greatest insecurity in your life?
Hmmm, I'm afraid of getting through my life and never accomplishing what I set out to do. To realize I've essentially made no impact at all. That would be devastating.
What is the greatest passion that keeps you motivated?
The desire to find myself and express myself to my full potential... and for that to reach other people in a profound way.
To learn from mistakes; stagnancy isn't worth much to me.
It is my firm belief that a "life" is molded by these three factors (ok...as a scapegoat, not per se). The greatest lesson is a nagging reminder of your values, the greatest insecurity is an excellent indicator of the maximum growth potential, and the motivation is key to understanding to what extent that growth will be achieved. Of course, this only applies to what my definition of "life" entails.
Which for me is growth, and how you pass on that growth to your offspring. Kind of like Gonorrhea. Not to say that you should have sexual relations with your offspring, should you have Gonorrhea. Perhaps color blindness would have been a better example...

Lesson: Each person has their own reality, interacting at points of relation in space, time, and intent, clustering and deflecting.
Then again, I probably wouldn't have come to this lesson if I didn't learn my ABCs.
Insecurity: Regret, particularly in those decisions that affect my relationships with close people and could have been better planned.
Passion: The synchronous evolution of love and reason.
