It could be a past incident that triggered your fear. A high school party you were made fun of. A male friend, who put his arm around your shoulder and slyly slid it lower. A stranger you smiled at and suffered him stalking you. A parent’s love that wasn’t warm. A critical remark that still haunts you. A friend who spoke wrongly about you. An uncle who tried to get too close. A teacher who wouldn’t be fair. A partner who made you feel too small. A sibling who was too busy to care. Love that wasn’t reciprocated. The better-looker who was given preference over you.
Have you seen an accident in front of you and not done anything? Have you seen a poor injured horse on the road and looked away? Did you get the cold shoulder by a school friend you met after ages? Did that sweet old lady wearing expensive pearls not smile back at you? Were you served after a group of expats in the next table even though you ordered before? Did you ever feel ‘trapped’ in a loveless relationship but too afraid to get out of? Were you molested and never spoke? Did the woman who molested you ever say sorry? Did the man who touched you wrong face any punishment? Were you called too aggressive if you want to fight?
Are you not you and the real you is too afraid to be seen?
Imagine if none of that had ever happened to you. Imagine you were born a free happy spirit and continued to live in the white light …till today. Would you still be the same?
