You ARE good enough. (Actually, you’re probably overqualified. But let’s start the week off humble.)

People will teach you how to love by not loving you back. People will teach you how to forgive by not apologizing. People will teach you kindness by their judgment. People will teach you how to grow by remaining stagnant. Pay attention when you’re going through pain and mysterious times. Listen to the wisdom life is trying to teach you.

Never apologize for being too much. Too passionate. Too strange. Too curious. Because no, you’re not normal, and that’s a blessing.

Be the person who breaks the cycle. If you were judged, choose understanding. If you were rejected, choose acceptance. If you were shamed, choose compassion. Be the person you needed when you were hurting, not the person who hurt you. Vow to be better than what broke you—to heal instead of becoming bitter so you can act from your heart, not your pain.

If you don’t love yourself, you’ll always be chasing after people who don’t love you either.

The truth is that the way other people see us isn’t about us—it’s about them and their own struggles, insecurities, and limitations. You don’t have to allow their judgment to become your truth.

When you start seeing your worth, it’s harder to stay around people who don’t.

When someone is nasty or treats you poorly, don’t take it personally. It says nothing about you but a lot about them.

 You can be a good person with a kind heart and still say no.

You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you—it’s something inherent.

When people treat you like they don’t care, believe them.

When the wrong people leave your life, the right things start to happen.

When you say ‘Yes’ to others, make sure you are not saying ‘No’ to yourself.

When you are not attached to praise or criticism, an interesting freedom is yours.

Life is too short to waste time waiting for other people’s approval on how you live it.

Rejection is not fatal; it is merely someone’s opinion.

If you find yourself constantly trying to prove your worth to someone, you have already forgotten your value.

Be proud of who you are and not ashamed of how someone else sees you.

Rejection doesn’t hurt, expectation does. Lying doesn’t destroy, denial does. Forgetfulness doesn’t heal, forgiveness does.

You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anyone.
