In life, we were taught to look outside ourselves for all the things we thought were missing from our lives, but the truth is that there is a life-force within each person. Look inside and discover yourself. Your heart and soul are a lot wiser than you think, and if you could just get into the habit of conversing with your soul—listening, trusting the one that created us—you will soon discover that all the answers you were once so desperately seeking outside yourself, are within you when you converse with your creator. You are more valuable than all the labels that have been placed on you. You are neither a finished product nor a fixed being. Who you are is constantly changing, growing, and developing. You will become new and better every day.
You should not wait for others to validate your self-worth. It is a truth that other people cannot determine how worthy and valuable you truly are. Most people have no idea how valuable they themselves are. Most people allow external things, places, people, and circumstances to determine how much they are worth, and so they judge you as being worthy or not so worthy, based on the same criteria. You should know that these things have nothing to do with your value and self-worth. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that whom you are is not enough, and that you need other people’s approval, love, and validation in order for you to feel worthy or valuable. Never allow external things, places, people, or circumstances to determine how much you’re worth, and there is no need to compare or compete with anyone or anything else. The life you are meant to create, and the person you were born to be, are unique. You are unique right from when you were created, and since your path in life is different from everybody else’s, there is no need to compare or compete with anyone or anything else.
