When you stop living for people without care of what they think or
say, then you really start being alive. Stop caring to be perfect
cause you truly can’t, if we could, we wouldn’t need His grace.
You don’t know what you’re capable of doing until you test the limits
without depending on other people’s opinion whose approval really
shouldn’t matter to start with.
If we don’t try, test the limits and attempt the somewhat impossible,
we tend not to know how much capabilities we’ve got.
We are of all men the wisest when we realize that we have just one and
one enemy alone and that enemy is ourselves, an enemy we live and dine
with and cannot do without.
Our knowledge of the best way to manage that enemy through the proper
use of our time, self improvement and refusal to live for others,
without constantly seeking approval from others sets you truly free
So great is our love for approval that we are willing to trick
ourselves if necessary rather than face the fact that we might not
deserve it. In like manner are we truly free once we are able to
overcome our innate desire to gain approval from others.
Self knowledge helps with self confidence and self love which in turn
sets us well on our way to true and complete freedom, free from
dependence on other people’s approval.
