liberating others


So many people find  it necessary to hide who they really are in order to impress those around them.  Everything becomes a powerpoint presentation, prepared and ready to exhibit to the public.

It’s a constant search for personas and make believe identities.  This race, perpetuated by judging eyes, creates facades strong enough to successfully hide insecurities and imperfections.  This eventually forces people to forget who they are, the things they want to accomplish, and the goals they want to set.  Instead they ask: What do others want to see me as?  What should I accomplish for them? What goals should I set according to their standards?

How liberating would it be if we stopped lying about ourselves, embraced our faulty qualities, and understood.  The more we hate, the more we judge, the more people hide and the less we know eachother. Let’s liberate ourselves by accepting eachother as people capable of mistake, and understand the individuality behind everyone’s actions and words, whether they be negative or positive.

Liberate people by letting them know how unique their bad qualities are and how their decisions, although looked down upon by others, may seem attractively maverick to you.  This way we’ll be more confident as ourselves and less narcissistic about who we pretend to be.

  • "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. 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
