Stop looking for love in others. And by love I mean acceptance, validation, popularity. To place all your self worth in the hands of someone else is to harm yourself - and it’ll take years of healing until you learn that you had the power to love, cherish, validate, and accept yourself all along. This week, I wish for everyone to focus on their self love practises - how do you show yourself love? 💕

Staring at the top of the mountain helps you know where you are headed, but if you never pause to see how far you have come, the peak will always seem far in the distance.

What Mr. Wilde was saying was that until we know that we’re extraordinary, we allow others to treat us as ordinary and then we get all, “What did I do wrong? Was it me?” when shit does down.
Then we eat Doritos and cry at night drinking too much wine, and worry that we’ll be homeless because we’re unworthy of money, and we wonder what the point of our lives are. Not that that is me. No…not_at_all. I’m a perfectly balanced teacher of wisdom 24.7.😳
The great Indian teacher Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (say that five times fast after a margarita) had something pretty amazing to say about this: “That which you are, your true self, you love it, and whatever you do, you do for your own happiness.” (*drop the mic*)
If you don’t believe me, believe an Indian prophet. He knew what he was talking about. Do all you do to love you. I know that sounds silly, but it’s not. It’s everything. Do this, and you won’t allow people into your life who don’t proclaim how extraordinary you are. Yeah, I got all Oprah on ya. *
✌🏼 People who constantly strive for validation by others are exhausting to be around. Those men and women who get caught up in the need to prove their worth over and over and over, and constantly want to win over everyone around them, are unintentionally toxic and draining. Know this. Over-attaching to how things have to look to others can wear you out and bring everyone else around you down. There is a bigger picture to your life, and it’s not about what you achieve in the eyes of the masses. It’s about the journey, the process, the path – what you’re learning, how you’re helping others learn too, and the growing process you allow yourself to participate in. ... #doitforyourself#validation#confidence#selfassured#selflove#loveyourself#positive#positivevibes#truth#wordstoliveby

Posting this again bc the last one didn’t get attention and I crave attention like I crave the love of my father so here!! Like it again
As a teenager and young adult I used to relate my self confidence to the validation I sought after from others. It took me a while to realise that this approach was confidence depleting, because I was never truly listening to myself and what it was I wanted. Seeking validation speaks the language of fear - judgement, criticism, conflict, being disliked, not succeeding, expectation. When I stopped seeking approval from others, I was able to truly start the journey of self love❤️ Now part of my vision is to share with others how they can do that too🙏🏼
I wrote this when I get low in confidence. When I began searching for my worth and esteem to be fulfilled by another. To feel validated by another when I realised that another was just like me. Another human soul who was looking for validation from another, just like me.
Domino effect they call it. I asked myself how did I get to the point of such low self worth where my validation rested on another's acceptance.
Pain does that to you. When you lose sight of reality and your own self importance- it's a shame that there are many others out there unconsciously falling into this trap without realising they are passing the power to somebody else.
People say take back your power
But how? When the only thing you knew was empathy-codependency-tolerance.

The girls at the neighborhood coffee shop I’ve been going to for the past 7 years just told me today that after years of deliberation they finally came to the conclusion that I look like 1980s/90s gold metal Olympic figure skater Brian Boitano. #lifegoals#validation#endgame#achieve#figureskating

TOUCH is my predominant Love Language. This is how I receive love from my spouse daily
His love language is AFFIRMATIONS so to feel loved by me I need to let him know verbally how much I appreciate his efforts daily .
We all NEED love
We all GIVE love
Learn your love language and the love language of those that matter the most to you (spouse, partner, children, family, and colleagues)
See quiz link in my bio to learn the 5 love languages by Dr Gary Chapman.

You might see this while scrolling through your feed and just pass this as a tool pic, or some sort of search for external validation on my part, and maybe it is 🤔
If you’re searching for some sort of validation, at least admit to it... It is so easy to see through people who try to cover up their constant need for validation 😂
And if you say you don’t do things for external validation, then answer this: What would you do if you were the only person on earth? Would you really be doing the same shit you do every day now? Would you lease that new car to take picture for the gram? Would you walk around wearing Supreme and Louis Vuitton? Would you be posting videos to snap every 10 minutes just to show the world that you have friends?
I just want to make you think 🤔💭 There are so many things that our subconscious mind leads us to do that we are completely unaware of and hardly in control of.
And some of the only ways I believe you can control what controls you (your subconscious mind) is to become mindful of it (meditation), control your input (the content you consume), and take responsibility for everything that happens in your life. 📈✌🏽
Have a great day 🙏🏽⚡️
