You have to let that go. It's not easy, especially if you have the chains of childhood dangling from your soul and the maps of distant roads past hoping you will continue the same path. Outside validation will not release the chains nor will it map out a new direction. That must come from within. You want something from the outside that only you can give you. You want to be validated. You want to feel good. You want to feel that you are enough. STOP!!
The validation that you are seeking can only come from within you. The words "you have done well" can only come from you. The sense that "you are enough" must be felt within your soul. Once you can say to yourself "I have done well and I at this moment am enough...Thus begins the validation. Words from the outside can be hollow and if they are real "you will not know they are real because you have not validated yourself." Until you validate yourself, the words you hear merely hang in the wind waiting for somewhere to fall. They hang because within you there isn't a validation magnet. You have not created an acceptance attraction that allows them to be felt by you.
Start validating yourself. Why? Because you have done well and you truly are enough!!
Until the next time,
