I suffered from complexes and had many inner issues, with this also came shyness and anxiety. I always looked at others with envy, because they seemed so bold I desired to be like them.
I recall the first session of the Course as if it were yesterday, the introduction was so strong. They spoke about flaws and qualities. These words remained with me: ‘No child is born shy…our flaws come with bad circumstances of life’. Those words gave me hope, I chose to believe that I could also change. I learnt that I had the power to choose who I wanted to be!
Which is a strong, confident virtuous woman.
From there I decided to really dig deep, meaning I had to go to places and feelings within myself that I didn’t want to go. It was a battle, but the transformation took place when I was sincere with God.
I surrendered the shyness, complexes, anxieties etc to Him and from then on He started moulding and changing me. I started pushing myself out of my comfort zone, even doing things to humiliate myself just to break the shyness and complexes.
Today I am completely transformed, sometimes I look at myself and I don’t believe it’s really me. Everything seemed so impossible, but when I took the decision to be the person God created me to be and allowed Him to mould me, He came and gave me a new identity. I’m so grateful for the Self-Awareness Course, without it I don’t know where I would be.”
