What kind of people make you feel intimidated, small, inferior? Why?
I would have to say that those closest to me sometimes intimidate me the most. I know, I know…those closest to me should be the ones’ that I trust the most, so how do they intimidate me? The intimidation I feel is often self-inflicted, the work of my mind playing tricks on my heart.
Because I love these people, I care about what they think. I expect and desire their support the strongest, whether they are happy with what they see or not. On the other hand, strangers don’t really intimidate me because I honestly don’t care for their opinion. But as for those I love, those I care for – the voice that they impart into my spirit matters.
Family should be proud to call me wife or friend, daughter or sister, cousin or niece! And so I will continue to work on transforming the perspective of my mind so that I am not intimidated, but instead I am encouraged to let my light shine.
