FR. LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery


SHAME


“If we are not ashamed to think it, we should not be ashamed to say it.”

~ Marcus Tullius Cicero ~

I was afraid to tell others what I thought. I was afraid to speak or be noticed. I sat for hours in silence. At times, I wished I could vanish into the furniture. I was afraid of my shadow.

This reveals not only my lack of confidence but also my low self-esteem. I did not think I had anything to offer that might be interesting. I would laugh at stupid things to please people.

Today I speak out with courage. I do not hide what I am thinking. I believe I have something to offer in the celebration of life. And it feels good! My spiritual growth is proportionate to my willingness to let others know who I am and what I think.

May I celebrate my joy in living by sharing it.
