Have you considered low self-esteem as a catalyst for being fearful of other people? Deep down, how do you really feel about you? Can you look in the mirror and say to yourself, I love you and truly feel good about it. I don’t mean your public social media persona. I mean really honestly assess how you feel about you.
When I say fearful, I mean expressing yourself on the spectrum of opposites or duality. There are truly only two emotions within the human experience. Love is on one end and fear is on the other. We simply have different names for the emotions that fall along the spectrum from one extreme to the other.
It’s really simple to determine which end of the spectrum you are choosing to operate from. Love feels good, fear feels bad. Emotions of love are happiness, ecstasy, joy, etc. On the spectrum of fear would be anger, jealousy, depression, etc.
As a culture, many of us of the African diaspora cannot truly look in the mirror and honestly feel love towards our own reflection. There are some many different components that play into this issue. But low self-esteem is at its roots.
We can immediately call out racism as a culprit, and rightfully so. But, we rarely examine how religion has taught us to hate ourselves and assume the worst of others.
Consider this Scripture:
Genesis 6:5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
That is an absolute that when taken to heart colors your view of humanity. When you add on top of that low group esteem (looking at your culture and people as somehow defective) it becomes a prescription for looking at the world through our own negative belief about people. Which ultimately reflects what we believe about ourselves. These ideas are a source of low vibrational expression of fear. If you assume the worst, about your world it means your main filter of your reality is through fear.
Consider your thoughts, they are who you are being. What rules your life on a day to day basis? Are you a being of love, or fear?
