Day 15: Relief yourself from the need for others to accept and approve you
This is daily Hunch. A Hunch to help you become.
Living in a fast-paced society and in the age of social media, we are finding ourselves doing so much comparison with our peers from all over the world and use that to give value to ourselves. When you feel you do not match up, you may be tempted to do all it takes to match up and compete. Inspiration from other people, all walks of life is okay when it is perceived in light of understanding.
Since you have very little information about what is going on in the other person’s life, chances of making tremendous blunders is very high when you choose to compare and compete. These errors will cost you; you will harm yourself and amount to nothing in the end or incur huge losses.
When not all is working for you, do not be too hard on yourself. Resist the temptation to compare yourself with others, rather own up and work out a plan based on strengths and possibilities in your life to move toward the direction you want.
What others say about you is purely reflection of their locus and views on life. They bring insecurities, fears and their own doubts to each conversation. Instead of taking in what they say, align yourself with the truth; that you are wonderful, chosen and dearly loved. This will quiet your fears that say I am alone and unlovable. Approve yourself and you will be free.
Relief yourself from the need for others to accept and approve you. Turn your attention to your desires and focus on what you want to do. When you are in tune with truth, you will come out confident and enthusiastic.
Embrace who you are and take courageous steps to pursue the passions God has put in you.
I will give thanks to you because I have been so amazingly and miraculously made. Your works are miraculous, and my soul is fully aware of this.Psalm 139:14
