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

Something Wrong I've been doing lately - hiding my light, dimming it, so someone who doesn't have as much won't be uncomfortable.

Fuck it.

Gonna shine.

Not comfortable with not having light of your own? Get some. Not my problem.

Repeat: Not. My. Problem.

Have left a voicemail with someone to this effect: I'm not apologizing anymore. I'm not apologizing for the way other people feel, because that's their emotion. I'm not the boss of them. There's nothing I can do about that. I'm not apologizing for other people's oversensitivity, and I'm not fucking tiptoing anymore; it goes against my nature. And see quote above.

Fuck it.

Gonna shine.

Finished the Kai (Ryan) part of the story of the Fall; this is where the edge of madness starts to creep in, where you start to fid out what the Fall was all about, how it was so much worse than mere war, why it merited the end of immortality and the revocation of so much of their powers. It gets worse. Much worse.

Writing = shiny.
