I Stopped Begging For Their Approval

2.0K Shares

Most of my life has been spent trying to shrink myself. Trying to become smaller. Quieter. Less sensitive. Less opinionated. Less needy. Less me. Because I didn’t want to be a burden. I didn’t want to be too much or push people away. I wanted people to like me. I wanted to be cared for and valued. I wanted to be wanted. So for years, I sacrificed myself for the sake of making other people happy. And for years, I suffered. But I’m tired of suffering, and I’m done shrinking. It’s not my job to change who I am in order to become someone else’s idea of a worthwhile human being. I am worthwhile. Not because other people think I am, but because I exist, and therefore I matter.  — Daniell Koepke

BOOK REVIEW: “This book is full of positivity, which is what I need and want in my life. This book was not written to be read from cover to cover. Each page holds inspirational and uplifting words that make you think.” — 1 STop Mom
