I used to be an approval addict and my addiction almost cost me my life.
For years, I sacrificed my dreams on the altar of the “greater-good” of others.
Why? Because I wanted to be loved.
I wanted to be accepted.
Why? Because deep inside I didn’t truly love or accept myself.
Instead of viewing myself as a living being who was perfectly designed in his mother’s womb, I saw myself as marred, disfigured, and un-worthy of love or compassion.
Although I was very much alive, inside I felt like dying.
I’m grateful that my life’s journey included an experience that exposed this false narrative.
Today I am able to love myself for all that I am and all that I’m not.
I’m perfectly imperfect… and that’s Ok.
We are all so much more than we give ourselves credit for.
Go be all that God created you to be today!
