Is it really that difficult to measure up? We spend entire lifetimes looking for approval and acceptance from others. Notice how even we get the positive feedback, it still isn’t enough? That’s because the source of our belonging can only be truly found deep inside of us.
Have you chosen to do this inquiry? If not, life will continue to be a struggle and you can count on challenges winning the day rather experiencing personal victory. Would life be better if we didn’t need anyone else to tell us how great we are? I don’t think so; I know so.
