Cocoon represents the changing period of what they are doing. Also, transformation – patients (Trust, Change, Believe) The Butterfly represents the change, accomplishment. Pottery decorated representing their inner selves, beauty.

Understanding about how to plan a step at a time on dealing or understanding their challenges. Some of the understanding was how to acknowledge a problem, and from there a step-by-step method of changing yourself that will allow you to finally either deal with an issue, or/and build yourself to change that will allow you to move on. Also change enables you not to fall into same situations again that are not healthy.
