I would like to share a poem by Marianne Williamson with you. I believe it articulates my thoughts that I shared in the video.
“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 does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened 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.”
Real talk. Not everyone can actually handle your evolution. They will see your changes and your growth but yet they will still continue to bring up your past. Your success, self love and dedication to be the best tat you can be actually puts up a mirror in front of their face and shows them their untapped potential. Don't let it discourage you. Continue to shine. Your light actually inspires other people to shine too.
