i came across this quote some time ago and it spoke to me so much that i wanted to share it with others.
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.
Shine, baby… and if anyone tries to dim that shine? Fuck ’em. Keep shining anyway. Shine brighter. Show ’em how it’s done.
Remember your worth. Don’t settle for anything less than what you deserve.
