I'm no gardener but one thing I do know is seeds in a packet will always remain seeds.
It is only when those seeds are planted in the right soil, watered, and given lots of care and attention that those seeds will end up reaching their full potential as fruits, flowers, or whatever they're destined to become.
In the same respect, I believe people are little seeds that flourish in the right environment. I believe that environment is love, acceptance/self-acceptance and support. Then the individual gets to express what they love the most and be who they really are.
