You are GOOD enough, SMART enough, FINE enough, and STRONG enough. You don’t need other people to validate you; you are already VALUABLE.
Sometimes we try to show the world we are flawless in hopes that we will be liked and accepted by everyone, but we can’t please everyone and we should not try to. The beauty of us lies in our vulnerability, our complex emotions, and our authentic imperfections. When we embrace who we are and decide to be authentic, instead of who we think others want us to be, we open ourselves up to real relationships, real happiness, and real success.
There is no need to put on a mask. There is no need to pretend to be someone you’re not. You have nothing to prove to anyone else. This past week was challenging for me because I was confronted with not being able to stick to my schedule. I needed to meet certain deadlines and due to technical malfunctions I was unable to. This originally put quite a bit of stress on me however when I realized that I was doing the best I could with the resources I had it all faded away. With that said here are my 7 reasons to stop seeking validation.
1.) The people worth impressing just want you to be yourself.
2.) No one else really knows what’s best for YOU.
3.) YOU are the only person who can change YOUR life.
4.) Society’s materialistic measurement of worth is worthless.
5.) Life is NOT a race; you have nothing to prove.
6.) The path to all great things passes through failure.
7.) It’s impossible to please everyone anyway.
