Hi Everyone, I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right area, but I just saw the movie "Akeelah and the Bee" and there was this quote they used in the movie that I thought was so wonderful, I had to go back and look it up. I found it and thought it might be helpful to some of us struggling with SA. I know it will be to me.
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 and 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 enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won't feel insecure around you.
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
