Fear is the material that my shadow is made of.
Fear of not being smart enough, thin enough, pretty enough. Fear of failure, not "doing it right", and fear of judgment kept me from reaching my potential.
In the summer of 2014 I discovered that I am a food addict. I entered into a recovery program where I have learned to turn to a power greater than myself instead of food to solve my life's problems.
The shadow is still there, but my Higher Power is covering the shadow with love and acceptance. The shadow of fear is no longer holding me back from living the life I was meant to live.
