Outer idolization is often defined as infatuation, a Latin derivative meaning “made foolish.”
“An illusion is like a free radical in the psyche. It causes an imbalance as it erodes inner strength. Every time we assign our power to something we believe to be more powerful, we hold a part of ourselves captive. Outer idolization is often defined as infatuation, a Latin derivative meaning “made foolish.” The foolishness is rooted in the irony, since we are seeing our power projected onto another, reflected back at us, but we interpret it as belonging to the other. When we see our power as belonging to the other, we view that person with awe.” Do Not Give Your Power Away!
Excerpt From: Sofia A. Wellman’s, “If The Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot.”
Sofia’s book gave me RESOLUTION! I love how it’s written it writes like you are sitting down talking to your best friend. I came across this book when I was going through a tough time in my life. I had a lot of questions about life and why why why. Sofia tells us that we are not the only ones that feel this way and have these questions. Growing up attending catholic school in Brooklyn, I understood a lot about where she was coming from (she too attended Catholic school). The title is rebellious which caught my attention suggesting a fighter wrote it! It helps you in your journey to gaining the strength to jump those hurdles in life. I had the pleasure of meeting Sofia recently and she is a strong soul with an inner peace and after reading her book you will know why! Read It!
