“Intuitive guidance means having the self-esteem to recognize that the discomfort or confusion that a person feels is actually directing him to take charge of his life and make choices that will break him out of stagnation or misery. And, while we measure our own success in terms of our personal comfort and security, the universe measures our success by how much we have learned.”
- Caroline Myss

Even if the whole world acknowledged you it wouldn’t be enough. It wouldn’t fill you up inside because that’s not the sustenance you needed in the first place. What you’ve always needed is to figure out how to be okay just as you are. To stop letting other people define or control you. To stop wanting approval and notice from others. To stop being of it instead of above it. When you look in the mirror you have to be happy with who you see, the life you live, and the way in which you live it. Your approval is what matters. Your recognition is what matters. Your acknowledgement is what matters.
