This Is Deep

In my heart of hearts, I spent much of my formative years in fear of others… Paralyzing soul gripping fear of mind and body.

I faced what I was afraid of and there has been a transformation in which these fears have been somewhat quelled.

When I became a father I turned into this person who was much like those I feared earlier; someone who would do anything to protect who I loved…

Why couldn’t I feel that way about myself?

Why would I not have enough self love to feel that passionate about protecting myself?

And finally… Is this the quality (Self Love) that these people processed that I feared long ago?
