MAKE YOURSELF PROUD
One of the biggest mistakes we make in life that is that we strive so hard to make other people proud of us; our parents, our teachers, our friends, our pastor, etc.
At what point do we stop and think about what makes us proud of ourselves? Isn't that what counts most? If you do the things in your life that make yourself proud, I believe the people around you will be proud too. And if they aren't...maybe they aren't your people. They have their own life and choices to make.
It is not your job to make everyone around you feel good about themselves -- that's their job. Think about that for a moment. Ask yourself who you are trying to get approval from and stop. Stop it now.
Not everyone is going to have the same values you have, and the ONLY person you need approval from is you. Maybe it's finally time to take responsibility for yourself and make choices that make you stand a little taller and laugh a little louder.
Tread lightly when you're making decisions about your life that revolve around getting the approval of others. They aren't living your life; YOU ARE.
Go on, make yourself proud.
