We are products of our experiences, but sometimes you need to separate our experiences from who you and define yourself in a new light - Dayo Samuel (Founder, Audacity2Lead) Dayo...
I had been on the plus size right from my childhood days and as I grew up I increased in size so that brought the fear of acceptance into my life.
The fear of
“Will I ever be loved”?
“Will people like me”?
“Will I have friends”?
These questions flowed through my mind continuously and that increased the fear.
When I walked in the streets people will laugh at me, men will make funny and sarcastic comments because I was bigger than my age.
I remembered in my secondary school, I had all manner of names because I was plus sized…
To eat even became a problem because of the fear of adding more weight, so I got tired of eating..
But one day, I looked into the mirror and told myself ” Sope you are good because God said you are”!
That sentence was my deliverance. I began to accept and love myself.
Surprisingly, my weight began to drop fast and I felt an unusual joy in my heart.
The fear of acceptance disappeared when I began to see myself in God’s way.
I then concluded that fear is a mirrage.
I chose to go for the reality of God’s perspective of me than the mirrage the devil placed in front of me.
Today, I cannot imagine myself being rejected because I know I am good in the sight of God.
The opposite of fear is faith. Keep boosting your faith and you will see fear checking out of your life.
