You may not be recognized in every room that you walk in. Your fire is bright but may not light every room or melt the coldness of every person.
Your beauty make not grab everyone’s attention and your love may not be appreciated by all.
You may not be applauded for every move you make or for every battle you win. That is fine. It does not mean that they are worthless. Validation is not a prerequisite for worthiness.
Learn how to solder on even when silence follows. Learn how to pat yourself when you make the strides and appreciate your persistence. Learn how to celebrate internal and external accomplishments. Learn how to look past money and social status to the peace and respect you gain over time. Believe in yourself; that you can think independently. Believe in yourself, that you can recognize the worth of something when others don’t.
Learn how to look at yourself, not through everyone’s eyes and perspective, but yourself.
