You have to learn to be good enough for yourself.
Not others. And that validation should have less to do
with a job title, accomplishment,
a relationship or something vain and more to do
with who you are and how you treat people.
Be confident in that. Looks fade, jobs can shift,
people can leave and accomplishments are only just that. And there are going to be a whole lot of people who don’t like you. When all is said and done what
you’re left with is yourself. And if you don’t like who
you are without any of those others things,
you’ll be on a path seeking validation from others
or in things that are concrete. What you’ll discover though is it’s never going to be enough.
