One of the greatest disservices you can do yourself, is to tie your sense of worth to what other people think of you.
Or more specifically, to what you think they think of you. Because the truth is, you probably don’t know exactly what anyone’s thinking about you. Even if they tell you, you still probably don’t know. Maybe they don’t even know. Or maybe they can’t find the words to express it.
Even if you do know, exactly what someone else thinks of you. Is one person’s perception powerful enough to shake your world out of balance?
Maybe it is. If you give enough of your power away to that person.
And that might make you feel like you’re insufficient, because someone doesn’t see you the way you want to be seen.
But think about it. In this case, the problem isn’t that you’re not enough. It’s that you’ve made the other person too much…
Don’t give all your power away to others. You need it for yourself. So that you can be a powerhouse of authenticity, and a lighthouse for others. So that you can know who and what you are, without needing other people to define you. So that you can know that you’re truly enough, because your only standard to live up to is your own.
I know, it can be easier said than done.
But it’s worth it.
You’re worth it.
