Love for yourself, appreciate your talent and believe in yourself. Live to be approved by God and not man, for God is love and He accepts and loves you the way you are. If you live for man and his approval, you will be hurt and disappointed. It is very tiring to live a life to please people. We are all fallen people. Put your trust and faith in God who is perfect, and you will be able to be who you are and not try to be someone else. Then you will live a very happy life.
Set yourself free from the bondage of man. Do not allow others to manipulate and control you. You need the courage to stand up for what is right and to stand up for yourself. Be brave to resist big bullies and their demands, never give in and give up the fight. You are who you are, what is the problem? Of course no one is perfect and there are things that everyone needs to change. But haven’t you heard of the quote “Nobody is perfect and I am a nobody”?
Offer no apology for who you are, you are special and unique in your own ways. No one is like you. God has made you so special, so different and so precious. You are one of a kind. Receive this truth and set yourself free from the approval of man. Then you will be happy.
