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 is not just in some of us; it is 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.
- Marianne Williamson

Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities have crept in;

to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

Weariness comes, on some days, from lack of service to self.

For as long as I can remember, I've been searching for something,
some reason why we're here. What are we doing here? Who are we?

I don't know, I think it's worth a human life. Don't you?

is a sign of low self-esteem,
and in severe cases, a condition termed co-dependency.

- Martin Luther King, Jr.
