As I have often observed on this blog, Romantic Dominants are the most nurturing, supportive, balanced men I have had the pleasure to have known.  Regardless of my relationship with them, they seem to have a strong, encouraging, confident warmth that makes my heart swell.

Below is a fabulous statement that was posted on my Facebook Timeline about a week ago and it’s been haunting me.  I think because it personifies what I have heard in my past, and because I believe it throbs in the heart of the Romantic Dominant men I have come to adore.


“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson
