When you believe in yourself, your authenticity radiates out into the world and others feel it. Trying to validate yourself through approval from others doesn’t ever really work. If you don’t feel worthy within, you can’t truly take in validation from others. Pleasing yourself first by being authentic and honest isn’t selfish, it’s the only sane way to be. Not only do others know they can trust you, you know you can trust yourself. And that’s…

The best way to live.
