As long as you look for someone else to validate who you are by seeking their approval, you are setting yourself up for disaster. You have to be whole and complete in yourself. No one can give you that. You have to know who you are - what others say is irrelevant.

There’s a lot of things blamed on me that never happened. But then, there’s a lot of things that I did that I never got caught at.
