what’s your 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.
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.
It’s not just in some of us;
it is in everyone.

And as we let our own lights shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

    interesting piece u got here…well that means that our deepest fear is rooted in the thought of loosing friends when we decide to stand out and shine..i say it is a sacrifice worth taking to keep certain friends around and “secure”…it is a good type of fear if u may call it that :))
