"Do not look for approval
for the consciousness of doing your best."
Most of us look for acceptance and approval more than we look to the place where it should reside--within ourselves. Why is the other guy's opinion more valid than our own?
I watched the first couple of episodes about Fergie's struggle with herself and the acceptance and approval theme kept coming up. It was something most of us could relate to...royalty or not.
Others will not know we are insecure unless we tell them or show them. They are more worried about how we perceive them than about how they are perceiving us.
So...be as calm as possible. Speak your own truth from your core values and don't compromise who you are. And that is what people will feel and see...
