Oftentimes we rely on the approval of others to establish our value. Whether in a relationship, friendship or employee capacity, we tend to gauge our worth on words and responses that feed the ego.
When you operate from the heart and know that what you do is done with pure intentions, you limit the control a person has over you through their words and actions. We all fall short in various areas of our lives and it is tempting to try and change who we are for the satisfaction of another. Doing so creates a false sense of contentment.
Understanding that worth is not based on our earthly possessions, achievements, physical attractiveness or public opinion, we can rest in the fact that our internal makeup speaks volumes in relation to our worth.
