I need that reminder often! It's so easy to forget. For many of us, culture and religion instilled very profound messages in our psyche and trying to change the pattern is not easy and doesn't feel good.
These sayings make me realize 2 things:
1- It doesn't have to be "it's either me or them and since I don't want to be selfish I will put everyone else first and then if there is time, if I have energy, I will do something for myself". We can change the paradigm into a "I will take care of myself AND then give from the overflow of love and joy.
2- It also reminds me of this quote from Marianne Williamson:
“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.”
By loving ourselves, by knowing that we matter, by knowing and freely express our uniqueness, we give other people permission to do the same. Let's give our daughters and sons, our friends, our family permission to be who they are! Let's show them how it's done!!!
