What Is YOUR Deepest Fear?
This is a lovely, thought-provoking writing that I cannot take credit for, although it touches me deeply, and I believe it with all sincerity.
Within the realm of eating disorders and the recovery process, the words below can be powerful, inspiring and hopeful. My desire is that others may find that also.
OUR DEEPEST FEAR
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others”
by Marianne Williamson
