We all want to be loved by others, but that need for approval can be a stumbling block.
Following a spiritual path means learning the priority is to be true to oneself.
As an expression of God in this form, body, and mind. I am all I need to be.
By being true to self, one may or may not garner the admiration or approval of others.
Ultimately, I will gain much more.
I pray to fully love myself as I am and to accept the love of God.
I pray to appreciate my gifts and the gifts of others and the unique desires of the heart.
I am here to live the life I have been given.
As we learn to love ourselves more, the need for admiration, fame, or whatever outside influence diminishes.
I am whole and complete just as I am
