I wrote this in my notes this morning and I think it’s such an important message. I’ve been struggling with external approval and impressing people, and this message is for me just as much as it is for you:
You do not have to impress anyone, you do not need to seek the approval man. Man is going to let you down because we are imperfect, flawed people. You do not need to do what everyone else is doing, you can march to the beat of your own drum. The only one you have to look to for approval is God. He accepts you with open arms. He accepts all your broken pieced, messy self and He moulds it all back together. His hands hold you and His love glues you all together. You do not have to impress anyone but don’t forget to be kind to everyone, to spread the love of God everywhere you go.
Also be confident of your choices and decisions. If you decide something stand in absolute surety in it and don’t overthink about what others think. Truth be told they’re probably not thinking about you.
