I used to want to be liked. And I learned that pleasing others is exhausting.
Next I hoped to be accepted. And I learned that approval is insidious.
Then I desired to be understood. And I learned discernment is both a gift and a choice.
Now I validate myself. And I learn that authenticity is sacred.
If you have ever felt alienated when you are fully being you, remember this:
We are each a great, divine expression of God. Stand in your Truth, and know that you make the Heavens sing.
How about you: Have you ever known something so right and absolute in your bone marrow, yet stood alone with it? Where do you see yourself on this continuum of external to internal endorsement? Does it depend on the day, or the situation? What is one area in your life where you can practice moving lovingly into standing in your Truth? Please share in the comments below.
