"TRUTH: No matter how you live or how wonderful you are, someone else will be disappointed. So do your thing! Don’t hesitate and waste all your time with lots of explanations. Most people only hear what they want to hear anyway. Just because someone doesn’t understand your point of view, doesn’t mean a great explanation doesn’t exist. Know this! You are GOOD enough, SMART enough, FINE enough, and STRONG enough....See More You don’t need other people to validate you; you are already VALUABLE."
I spent a lot of years being told by someone very close to me that I was not worthy... the manipulations of others around us created such friction and strife that I was always "on guard" to gain approval.... which never happened. FREEDOM, for me, was the day I realized I do NOT need other people to validate my worth. I forgave myself for believing a lie, stood taller and marched on!
DO NOT give ANYONE the power to diminish YOUR worth! YOU are GOOD enough, SMART enough and WORTHY!
