Do not rely on other people’s approval!!!!!

It is great when people cheer us on and make us feel valuable. We love when a friend compliments us or a co-worker helps us on a project. He uses people to help move us toward our destiny. But you cannot become so dependent on people that you are trying to get your worth and value from them.

It is easy to rely on them to keep you feeling good about yourself and make you feel approved. But if they do not give you their approval and meet your expectations, you will feel discouraged and inferior and you will work overtime to try to win their approval.

The problem is, you are trying to get from people what only God can give. Your value, your self-worth doesn’t come from another person—it comes from your Creator.

You should know better than to rely on people. What they do or do not do does not determine your worth and cannot stop your purpose. Quit depending on others’ approval and start approving yourself.

Their approval should not mean much to you. If you live for people’s acceptance, you will die from their rejection.
