How many of you look for validation outside of yourself? I’ve been guilty of it too. For a very long time I used the measure of other people’s perspective to gauge how great I was. This can be quite belittling if you have particularly negative or jealous circles. Not all people live with an abundant heart. And ready for some even bolder truth — Not everyone in your boat is rowing. Some are poking holes + hoping you will sink. Ouch. But when you recognize this is because most people leave their potential untapped, it’s easier to see their dissatisfaction with life + understand their judgment of you for what it is. Yet, how bad would you say you still crave their approval? I get it. But you’ve got to knock it off. Because know this — that craving wreaks havoc on your true beauty. You’re already perfectly designed. You came equipped with a light that shines from within + was made for you to ignite into a blaze. So my advice, learn to light up the sky with your own approval + validation. It’s all you actually need.
