My mind is faulty equipment sometimes. Without doing work *every* day to remind myself that I am not alone, that I need you and am needed, it will forget these things. This is dangerous.
When we think we are alone, we become afraid, confused and isolated. When we become afraid, confused and isolated we forget that the world needs us. We imagine what we say, think and feel doesn’t matter. We think that showing up doesn’t matter so we don’t show up and the people that needed us to show up are afraid and alone. We trick ourselves into thinking we don’t care.
My mind will tell me I’ve got this.
That I’m alright without anyone else.
That I can find my own way.
That nobody else understands.
My mind can be faulty equipment.
When I think I am alone it’s because I’m afraid of the light, not the darkness, as Marianne Williamson said.
"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’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone."
It’s in everyone! We’re not alone. And I need you :). Remind me again tomorrow, and I’ll remind you. Ok?
