Was it okay?
Did you like what I said?
Do I look good?
Do you love me?
Of all the needs that we have, the need for validation always makes us weak.
Waiting for someone else to tell us that we are right.
Asking people to be our cheerleaders, because we can’t be our own.
Basing our identity on the perceptions and stories of others.
What if we started telling ourselves that we are enough?
What if we knew that it’s okay to be a work in progress?
How would things change if we knew from within that we are doing our best, and raising the bar every single day?
Till the time we base our identity on what others think, we will keep getting weaker.
And never discover how strong we truly are within.
