Question: If insecurity means bondage, what chains need to be broken?
I don’t know. If I had to guess, I would say that I have to get to the point that no one’s life is better than mine. No one doesn’t have issues that I have faced. I may meet someone who doesn’t know what it’s like to be homeless, obese, have experienced loneliness, etc, but they have struggles just like me.
I guess that chain would be inadequacy. I spent most of my life feeling inadequate. I would assume that if someone made fun of me it’s because I deserved it because I was big and wore clothes made for old ladies. I thought that I should be able to change those things about myself so that others would respect me. I now know that this is far from the truth. If I can’t be respected while wearing clothes from Burlington Coat Factory, then I won’t be respected when I start wearing clothes from Saks.
