More Joy, Less Shame

Yes. Please. More Joy.

I hereby reject my deeply ingrained, intense fear of joy.
The fear of excess.
The fear of indulgence.
The fear of love.

The feeling of being so unworthy.
The feeling of being so needy.
The feeling of being so spoiled.

My very own fear of bliss
Fear of life

A declaration of trust
Trust in my power
Trust in the goodness of others
Trust in the laws of the universe

I don’t want to fear
the monsters under my bed
or in the closet
or behind the door
or lurking in my shadow

I don’t want to fear being alone
I don’t want to fear me
I don’t want to fear anyone

I don’t want fear

NO more fear.
No more shame.
No more guilt.
No more questions.

More joy.
More love.
More caring.
More life. Less darkness.
