You Don’t Need Anyone’s Approval

You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent. You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise. — Daniell Koepke

  3. Thank you ! these quotes are perfect especially when I am doubting my self worth.

  4. If we feel something is bound to fail because it’s ‘too good to last’, we might engineer its failure somehow so as to maintain a sense that we are still in control (because we caused it to fail).

  8. How wonderful that we are each different from each other, and that our differences are all valuable.

  9. Living with bipolar disorder can ruin your life.you are constantly trying to deal with yourself and other people seem to make it their business to make it a more complicated process. The last thing you need is to be sucked up into other people’s drama.its amazing how unadultkike adults can act.if you have a problem with someone deal with it! If not then suck it up and leave the people with a mental disorder out of it.they will thank you for it
