“A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep.”
Who are you? At your core are you confident and secure in what you believe and why you believe it?
Knowing what this means for you doesn’t mean that one doesn’t have much to learn in life, but being strong and confident in WHO YOU ARE and YOUR CORE VALUES is what allows you to continue to learn and grow in a positive and fulfilling direction.
This morning I heard the following verse which aligns so well to my interpretation of this quote. “Woe to you, when all people speak well of you, for so their fathers did to the false prophets.” Luke 6:26 ESV
Don’t sacrifice your morals and values seeking the approval of others. Be strong, and stand up for what you believe in.
