"Maybe The Dull Days Are Needed To Throw Into Sharp Focus The Joy Of The Golden Days. & There’s Always Joy To Be Found In The Little Everyday Things Of Life, Even On The Greyest Days. God Delights In Us & He Wants Us To Delight In Him."
"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. You exist, and therefore, you matter. You're allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You're allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You're allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you're allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise." — Daniell Koepke
