To raise that little feller up into a man, you got to be tough. I used to be scared of my own shadow too and I may be behind in some areas academically and social skills wise. But I'm not afraid of the part of me on the ground. I'm not afraid of my own shadow, not anymore. My family tried all kinds of stuff to help me understand that there's a life out there. A wife, a home, a job, a life of my own. The whole time I was fighting back against them because I couldn't see what they saw in me. I couldn't experience what they were living, joy. I was afraid of my own shadow of the man living in me.
