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.

Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

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