“It feels good when other people believe in you, trust in you, and support you. Yet, if you want to be powerful, it is important not to need other people to do so as a condition of believing in yourself. The need for constant validation makes other people the authority and not your own deep self. Your truth may not be the same as other people’s truth. The only wrong is when you do not honor your truth and when you accept what is true for another even though it is not true for you…Do not automatically accept something unless it has the ring of truth for you. Honor your truth, believe in and stand up for yourself, but have compassion for other people.
Remember that you count, you are important, and that you have a unique and special contribution to make to the world. Know that you are a special being. Your dreams, fantasies, and goals are as important as anyone else’s.”
Sanaya Roman, in “Living with Joy”
